Challenge #1 - Cards for Men - "Men at Work"

Well its back to work for us over on Cards for Men, and for this one we want to see a card with anything that will show a "Man at Work" Im sure you have a image somewhere in your stash that will be just right for this Challenge.
And we are being sponsored for this our 1st Challenge of the year by "Stampin Up" and our actual sponsor is Carol Bryson a very dear friend of our Challenge Team Leader Donna.

And she is offering a fabulous prize of 2 full size Ink Pads of winner choice, and here is what she says about herself:-

I am an Independent Stampin Up! Demonstrator in Lancashire & surrounding areas. I teach large and small scrapbooking and craft classes. I can arrange parties in your home for crafting and non-crafting friends to suit your requirements, and where everyone is guaranteed to have a great time ! I also run a crop in the Rochdale area. Please contact me for more details at xx

And for my card I decided to use a Mo Digital Image.

Well he can come and do some DIY for me anytime, hes fabulous dont you think, Ive printed him onto white card then used my copic pens to colour him, afterwards I cut him out with my rotatrim and mounted him onto a brown card. The sentiment is one from my stash and has also been mounted onto brown card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of brown card, and the papers I have used are from Sweetshoppe Digi Downloads, this set are called "Handy Helpers" I thought it was ideal for this image, Ive used three papers then laid my mounted image towards the top with the sentiment at the bottom on the right.
To finish of I have used several buttons in the to opposite corners.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will go and visit the Cards for Men Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the Design Team have created for your inspiration, and hopefully you will then take part in this "Men at Work" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

This is lovely Shirley. Love the boy card you have done. And I do have three dt commitments in row; CCM, BMC and TPS, but that is totally fine, it will sort itself in the end. I had to double check, but there is one more to go this week. LoL

Fab card Shirley - it doesn't look like he's doing much work though.
My card for next weeks challenge will be up later.

brenda said...

Got your message Shirley, don't know why that is and not had anyone else mention it and I know a few use Firefox. Afraid I'm not too good on the teckie stuff so not a lot of help.
