We're seeing Stars at Cards for Men!

It's time for a brand new challenge at Cards for Men and we have a fab theme for you chosen by my teamie Alex - 'Stars' (n.b. card must be for a male). Our sponsor this time is the fab store The Stamping Boutique. They are offering one lucky person 5 digis of their choice!

"I'm Tracey Malnofski, the artist and owner of The Stamping Boutique. My team and I are very happy to sponsor Cards for Men. My store has been open since September 2009.I am currently a stamp artist for UnityStampCo. and I've worked for InStyleStamps, Squigglefly, and TheDigiShack in the past. I'm a professional artist and an active member of the Artist' Guild in my community. I have quite a busy household with a husband, 3 teenagers, 5 mini-dachshunds and an Appaloosa mare. It's noisy, but I love them all. I'm truly blessed. The Stamlping Boutique is dedicated to quality products and original artwork. We not only provide wonderful digital images in our store, but also several lines of red rubber stamps. Our designers are chosen for their character and personality, as well as, their beautiful designs. We work hard to give you our very best. Thank you so much for having us as your sponsor this week."

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 fab digi image from The Stamping Boutique called Star you can purchase it here.
