We are going round in circles at Cards for Men!

It's time for a brand new challenge at Cards for Men and we have a fab theme for you - 'Circles' (n.b. card must be for a male). We have 4 new ladies who have just joined the Cards for Men design team so please do come and say hello, they are Wenche, Marita, Alex and Jen.

Our sponsor this time is the fab store Fresh Brewed Designs. They are offering one lucky winner 3 digi images of their choice.

"Hi. I am Heather Dennis. I am a homeschooling mother of 2 wonderful children, the wife of 12 years to the love of my life, a Christian and the owner of Fresh Brewed Designs. I have loved to draw and create ever since I was a child. My daughter has inherited my love of art and recently inspired me to start creating again. All the images in my shop are hand drawn. I offer a wide range of images from coffee, cute and inspirational.I also love to create custom drawn images, so if you are looking for anything in particular, please feel free to drop me an email".

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 have used a super cute digi image by Fresh Brewed Designs, available here and teamed him with some funky Basic Grey papers to make a cool boy's card. So for my 'circles' I used an image with a ball, circle Nesties to cut out my image and sentiment, a button and my punched border has tiny little circles/dots cut along the zig-zag line. I also tied knots in the twine to look like circles/dots...

Image - Little League Owl by Fresh Brewed Designs coloured with Promarkers
Sentiment - A Day To Remember Calendar by Catslife Press from Crafty Emma's Store
Papers - Wander by Basic Grey
Cardstock - Bazzill kraft
Button - stash
Twine - stash
Tools - Circle Nestabilities, Martha Stewart zig zag punch, scissors for distressing
