Well, at long last, I take a big sigh, fingers crossed, here it is, I have started my very own challenge blog. I
am both nervous and excited. I have been around in blogland for a few years, part of many wonderful Design Teams and felt it was time to give it a go myself. I would like to thank the Design Team for all of their help, in particular my good crafting buddie of many years, Jaybe aka Jan, without whose help this would all still be a dream. So what more can I say other than I hope you will pop over to CARDZ 4 GUYZ  for our first
challenge which is 'HAPPY BIRTHDAY'.
The challenge blog as you will find is for guyz of all ages, for my first card for the blog, I chose a favourite stamp of mine for guys for it in itself suits all ages, from the age of being able to read or hide behind  a book.
White Card stock
Papers from Forever Friends Kraft notes pad
and LOTV - A Country Gentleman
Fizzy Moon Main Stamp  and Brother- All about Him
Greeting stamp form my stash
Distress Inks Frayed Burlap and Vintage Photo
I do hope to be seeing you over on the blog, we all need male cards at some time or another, so why not at least pay a visit and have a go. Thanks for popping by here, I always look forward to your comments and appreciate everyone.
