Let's Hear it for the Boys and Men

Hi, Sharon here and I'm hosting this week's new challenge,  

"For the Boys or Men" 

We all complain about these male creatures, but we all know 
we could not live with out them. Well at least for me anyway;
my husband and son are my world. 
Easy peasy, just create a man/boy card.  
So let's get on with the challenge. Sami Stamps 
has the most beautiful images and they are our sponsor 
this week. YAY! Please stop over and show them come love.

 Sponsor: Sami Stamps
Prize - $12 credit to the store   


I am so blessed to be on a team with such incredibly talented ladies! 
Here's a little DT inspiration:

Carole - Warm Sand 






Sharon - Shoulder Ride 


ReneSnowflake Cocoa


And our challenges are not complete without 
inspiration from our Guest Designers. Thank you ladies 
for joining us in the challenge this week.

Janny from Janny's Card Creations  
I like to be guest designer. I'm always creative. From drawing to painting (wwwJannys-art.blogspot.nl/)  and card making. I use many different materials. I try everything, sometimes with good results sometimes not, but you learn a lot from it. It is precisely this play with materials and paint I like.

Margreet from Margreet's Scrapcards
 Hi all. I am Margreet Burger. I live in the Netherlands with my husband Joop. I am a mother to Femke, who got married to Paul in April 2014. I am working part-time as a secretary in the veterinary pharmaceutical industry and next October I'll be retired. I've been a crafter all my life, but card making and paper crafting is all the world to me. I love coloring with copics, distress (markers) and l'Aquarelle (Sennelier). My motto is: a day without crafting is a day wasted.
More of my works can be seen at https://margreets-scrapcards.blogspot.com

This challenge is open until May 3rd.
 Please remember to make a new project, link it to your post, 
not your blog, and also no back linking. You can enter up to 
3 projects by using the link below.

Have fun and we can not wait to see what you create!
