It's men only at MTTC today

Good morning all

Well it certainly is a good morning here in the frozen north!  The sun is shining and theres even a touch of spring in the air - don't suppose it'll last but its nice to have some decent weather for a change.  

Its also challenge day at MTTC  - so another reason to be cheerful!

This week challenge is 

Men only
(only cards for men)

I decided to use this cute image called Birthday Ted from Dis Digi downloads -I bought it before Christmas intending to use it for a little boys birthday card but somehow it didn't get used.  Its one of those versatile stamps that I think you could use for a birthday card for almost anyone so I decided to use it to make a 30th Birthday card for my son in law.  His birthdays at the end of March, I need to be prepared for this day as not only is it his birthday but also my daughters birthday and their wedding anniversary all on the same day - not a day for last minute cards lol

Anyway here's the card I made for him

 I decided to take it into the conservatory to photograph as it was such a bright sunny day - its on my glass dining table so there's lots of light - just in case you're trying to work out what on earth you can see in this picture - its a glass table and chairs under it!!

This is what I did...
Image - birthday Ted from Dis digi downloads
Coloured with copics and prisma pencils
Card - bazzill basics 
Papers - kitschy kitchen from Melissa Frances (aqua) and everyday essentials from paper mania(beige)
Card cut with spellbinders grand nestis circles and scallops
Star dies - Mariannes
Numbers - Sizzix tim holtz wanted alphabet
Sentiment  - LOTV

I know lots of people don't like making cards for men - so this could be just the challenge for you - get challengeing yourself - that why its called a challenge lol
