It's a man thing at Sweet Stampin'

Good morning and happy Saturday! It's time for the new challenge at Sweet Stampin' and this week the theme is 'it's a man thing' and we would like to see your masculine makes! I always find it harder to make cards for the men in my life (which is a shame as I have 5 brothers and countless nephews as well as a husband, son and son-in -law!). I have to say I really enjoyed making this card, another project with lots of stamping, distressing, inking and masking not to mention embossing  and heat embossing on the diecuts! I was having so much fun I just didn't want to stop! Card is a bit busy....a case of 'more is more'...:))
Why not pop across to the challenge blog and see what my lovely teamies have made. Hopefully you'll be inspired to make your own card, and enter the challenge, which is sponsored this week by The Ribbon Girl and Cuddlybuddly with some generous prizes to be won!
Thanks for visiting!
Have a lovely weekend!

I'll tell you what the obsession is with clearing out Chris...have you ever seen the pics of my stash?? Well that's a part of it but I just have way too much stuff & still hanging on to a load of my DD's despite her having moved out months ago. I'm gonna get ruthless with it if she doesn't get her skates on! Anyway, I love this card, slightly envious as I can't do all that throw it all on, random, free for all looking sort of stuff & get it looking this fab.

Have a fabulous day xx
