Male Birthday cards at A Gem of A Challenge

Good Morning Everyone and Happy Saturday!

I hope you are having a good weekend. I plan to spend some nice quality time with my daughters as my son will be out with his dad most of the weekend because he has 3 cricket matches to play.

Today is the start of a new A Gem of a Challenge
This week the theme set by the lovely Christine is

A Male Birthday card (with a Birthday Sentiment)

The prize for the winner will be.....
2 Individual Digi images
(NO SETS, PERSONALISED WATERMARK'S OR SENTIMENT SETS) 
of the winners choice from PINK GEM DESIGNS.....

As you know, male cards are not really my strong point so it is very lucky that Pink Gem Designs have loads of fabulous images to choose from. I have used the adorable Josh with Puppy as he reminds me of my son a few years ago, he still loves dogs now.



Items Used
Digi Stamp - Pink Gem Designs Josh with Puppy  coloured with Promarkers
Papers - Magazine freebie from a while ago
Memory Box Simple Banner Die
Die Namics Fishtail Flags Stax
Sentiment - Lili of the Valley


If you take a look at A Gem of a Challenge, you will see the wonderful creations make by the rest of this week's design team and see who were the winners of the last challenge


I would like to enter my card into the following fabulous challenges:

Papertake Weekly - Hot, Hot, Hot (if these colours are not hot enough please feel free to delete!)
Digital Delights - Raise the Banner
Jellypark Challenges - Masculine
Crafting for all Seasons - Masculine
Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe Challenge -Spots and stripes
Here come the Boys - Let's go Dotty!

That's it from me for now. Thank you to you all for taking the time to look at my blog today, I really do appreciate it and love to read any comments you may wish to make
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
Bye for now
hugs

Hi Sue,
you may say you find male cards hard, but everyone you have created has been fantastic, and this is no exception. Love the colours used, and I too bought this image and coloured him in a while back but have never created a card with it yet. Now you have given me the inspiration to do so.
Have a wonderful crafty day.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
