We're getting ready for Easter at Cards for Men...

It's time for a brand new challenge at Cards for Men and we have a fab theme for you - 'Easter' (n.b. card must be for a male).

Our sponsor this time is the fab store Peachy Keen Stamps. They are offering one lucky winner 2 fab sets of clear stamps!

"Peachy Keen Stamps is a family owned and operated leading clear stamp manufacturer based out of Northeast Wisconsin. Our stamps are made out of the highest quality polymer on the market today, giving them their unique peach tint. The whimsical images designed by Kathy Jakopovich coupled with their durability make them a favorite smong scrapbookers, cardmakers and artists alike. These stamps are sold exclusively online at and at independent stamp and scrapbook stores worldwide. Please visit our website for a somplete list of retail locations".
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 gorgeously cute digi image from Bugaboo called Funny Bunny - Egg Tower. I've used some pretty MME papers and some buttons from my stash. I do have to apologise as the colourway of this card is identical to my last Cards For Men DT card - oops, I used different papers but they are more or less the same colours, have a lil look...

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Catch the Bug - 4 or more layers
Simon Says Stamp - Spring Colours/Easter

Image - Funny Bunny Egg Tower by Bugaboo coloured with Promarkers
Sentiment - generated on pc
Papers - True Blue by MME
Cardstock - Bazzill kraft
Buttons - stash
Twine - Whiff of Joy
Seam Binding - Crafty Ribbons
