'Yee Haa' we have a new challenge at Cards for Men!

It's time for a brand new challenge at Cards for Men and we have a fab theme for you - 'Wild West' (n.b. card must be for a male). Our sponsor this time is the fab Meljen's Designs. Melissa is offering one lucky person 4 digis of their choice!

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 Meljen's Designs called Billy the Cowboy Bear, you can purchase him here. I love this image, I teamed him with lots of twine and even made a lasso ;-)
