It's Recipe Time at Cards for Men...

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! It's time for a brand new challenge at Cards for Men and we have a fab theme for you to follow 'a Recipe - 1 image, 2 papers and 3 embellies' (n.b. card must be for a male). Our sponsor this time is the wonderful One Stop Card Crafts and the prize is a £10 gift voucher to spend at the store.


Shelley, the lovely owner of One Stop Card Crafts (and my fellow teamie at CYDA!) has this to say: "At One Stop Card Crafts we have a big range of ever changing discount card making and cardmaking craft supplies.We are always adding to our range of craft supplies which are ideal for making handmade greeting cards, do-it-yourself invitations scrapbook pages, altered items and much more.

Please pop over to the CFM challenge blog to check out the details of our new challenge. As always the DT have made some wonderful cards, please do pop across and have a peek and have a go at the challenge while you're there. So onto my DT card, I've made a card for my eldest son Jack who turns 7 next month. I think I sometimes make my cards too faffy so strived for CAS with this card. I used a 6x6 card blank and cut off half the front. The image is a cutey from Bugaboo available here. I pasted the image into Word and added 3 stars and a sentiment. I love how you can do that easily with digital images...

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Supplies:
Image - World Boy from Bugaboo coloured with Promarkers
Papers - Blueberry Pie by Papermania
Cardstock - Bazzill Basics
Card Candy Dots - Craftwork Cards
