For a special male

   It's the first Saturday in the month and that can only mean the start of another challenge at Send A Smile 4 Kids. The theme for this challenge is for a dad or special male and again we have three generous sponsors: Crafty Sentiments Designs (3 digis of winners choice), Dollar Graphics Depot ($15 gift cerftificate) and Inspired by Stamping ($20 gift certificate).

   For my first card I matted some paper which reminded me of coloured wood panelling onto white card. Using a Spellbinders small classic square die I cut four squares from the 'screw' paper which I had printed using My Craft Studio Limited Edition Everyday Men's CD ROM. I matted each of these onto grey core'dinations cardstock which I had cut out using a Spellbinders large classic square die. I then arranged these symmetrically on the card. 
   The coloured image is one  in the daddy's little helper collection from Dollar Graphics Depot and I cut this out using a Spellbinders small label die. I matted this onto navy embossed card which I had cut out using a Spellbinders large label die and fixed it centrally on the card. 
   I matted the sentiment onto grey core'dinations cardstock and glued a screw which I had cut out of the design paper onto each end of the banner before attaching it to the card.

   I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
   Cute Card Thursday - use a sentiment
   Craft Your Passion - anything goes
   Buckwell's Crafty - spots or stripes or both
   Inspiration Destination - anything goes
   Crafting From The Heart - anything goes
   Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper - anything goes
   Crafty Gals Corner - stripes and/or polka dots

   For my second card I matted and layered paper printed from Ooh La La Creations Boys to Men CD ROM onto turquoise card and then white card. I found a strip in my stash that toned in with this paper so I attached this to the left hand side of the card.
   The digi image is from Crafty Sentiments Designs and is called Patches done fishing. I coloured it using Promarkers and matted it onto the turquoise card before attaching it to the card. Finally I added a vertical happy birthday peel off to the left hand strip.

   I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
   Brown Sugar - anything goes
   4 Crafty Chicks - anything goes
   The Cutie Pie - all about the boys
   Addicted to Stamps and More - make your mark
   Word Art Wednesday - anything goes
