We're all at sea at Cards for Men...

It's time for a brand new challenge at Cards for Men and we have a fab theme for you to follow 'WATER' (n.b. card must be for a male). Our sponsor this time is the wonderful Hope Jacare and the prize is 3 Hope Jacare digital images!


Claire, the lovely owner of Doodles by Hope Jacare has this to say: "I'm a SAHM with three young children. I trained in Textile Design at the Glasgow School of Art and I love all things handmade, but especially papercrafts. I love to doodle ... and my doodles are available to purchase as digital images through Stitchy Bear Stamps."

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 used a gorgeous image called Trevor Turtle designed by Hope Jacare available here. I absolutely love the expression on this lil guys face, looks like he hasn't a care in the word and imagine him floating away in a lovely warm sea somewhere hot...


Supplies:
Image - Trevor Turtle by Hope Jacare from Stitchy Bear Stamps coloured with Promarkers
Sentiment - generated on PC
Papers - Blueberry Pie by Papermania
Button - stash
Bakers Twine - Crafty Emma's Store
Pearls - The Hobby House
Tools - Circle Nesties, scissors for distressing
