It's sketch time at Cards for Men and a DT call!

It's time for a brand new challenge at Cards for Men and we have a fab sketch designed by the lovely Mandy for you to follow (n.b. card must be for a male).

Our sponsor this time is the wonderful Letraset and they are giving one lucky winner a set of 12 Promarker pens - whoo hoo!

Letraset has this to say: "ProMarkers are made by Letraset and are a twin tipped, dye based alcohol marker offering a high quality product at a great price. Avilable in 148 colours, they give incredible tonal range and can be applied to a diverse range of materials, not just paper and card. ProMarkers produce vivid, bright colours right through to the subtlest pastel shades - the translucent inks can also be overlaid and blended, even further extending the range of shades and hues on offer. ProMarker's quality nibs and inks provide flawless colour lay down with consistent coverage and no unsightly streaking."

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 retired Sugar Nellie image called Rugby Hamish. I have coloured him in Jack's rugby team's colours of blue, green, red and yellow. Jack's team were runner's up in an Under 7's rugby competition last week, pipped to the post by a well known local 'rival' team.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
CES - Men Only
MAWTT - For a Male

Image - Rugby Hamish (now retired) by Sugar Nellie coloured with Promarkers
Sentiment - Woodware
Papers - Rough and Tumble by K&Co
Cardstock - Bazzill
Pearls - The Hobby House
Tools - Labels One Nestie

If you are still with me, I just wanted to mention that we are having a DT call at Cards for Men to recruit a couple of new peeps to join us. If you would like that to be you then please add DT to your name when entering this challenge. All details are on the Cards for Men challenge blog.
