Masculine Card

Hello, good morning. It's a nice sunny warm day here in Malta.. been like this all week but weather forecasts predict stormy weather for the weekend. So far nothing, it's the weekend .. looks like they're wrong, but of course, I still wouldn't mind whatever comes ;)

I have today my DT card for this week's Challenge at Sweet Stampin' and this week the theme is Masculine. These cards always give me a tough time and so to help me along I checked out some challenges ..

and this is what I did.. wheels and shapes and teddies...

The stamp was a freebie in a magazine, coloured it with my promarkers, papers are from Papermania.. had these for ages, banners and stars dies are Die-Namics. For the circles I used a puncher and the Happy Birthday sentiment is from my Hero Arts stamp set.

We are this week sponsored by Di's Digi Downloads, so stop over to the Sweet Stampin Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the Design Team created and then get crafting some male projects for your chance to win some lovely digis.

And these are my challenges
WHEELY NICE - Here Come The Boys 12
GET IN SHAPE - Papertake Weekly
IN STITCHES - Charisma Cardz 41 
DIE CUTS AND/OR PUNCHES - Whimsy Stamps 10
BOYS, BOYS, BOYS - Pollycraft Monday Challenge 114
ANYTHING GOES - Lothian Crafts 19

Thank you for looking today.

Wow Fantastic card! Cute image so well colored. Love all the shapes and colors. Great design as well.
It's gotten cool here and we are expecting a freeze Sunday night. Been busy putting the garden to bed for the winter. Getting the greenhouse up and running too. No crafty time for me until it's all done. :(
Blessings Bernie
