Its another challenge day at Fab'n'Funky challenges - today we are celebrating maleness

Hi blog friends

Another week has gone by and here it is Wednesday - where did that week go!

Thank you to everyone who sent their hugs and kind comments yesterday after my sad post about Tilly yesterday - its nice to know that you've given me a little thought in your busy day.

Today's challenge at Fab'n'Funky challenges is celebrating maleness and we are being sponsored by the fab Crimson cloud

I had such problems with this card!  Not the actual card but deciding what to do.  My Mother in law asked me to make a card for her neighbour - who is 90 at the week end so decided to combine this with the challenge.  But what do you make for a 90year old man that you don't know!!  I made some enquiries and found out he likes gardening, going to church,bring and buy sales and is teetotal!  To me that's more challenge than any you're likely to find in blogland!!  So out of that I went with the gardening.

I had to go looking for a digi stamp for this and found this lovely little set at digi boutique.  I bought this one and a female garden version for only £1 each - they're on offer at the mo.  Considering I had no clue as to what this card would be when I started I was pleased at how it turned out - I think my 90 year old gardening, church going,bring and buy teetotal man will like it.  As for the celebrating maleness challenge well I think I win!! -My man being celebrated is 90 years old so has been male for longer than most - that's something to celebrate all right ha ha.

This is what I did ...

Digi stamp - digi boutique - male garden
Coloured with copics and prismacolor pencils
Papers - K and co - I think- (had them so long I'm not sure)
Little pot of flowers and trowel are K and co stickers
Card candy - craftwork cards
Twine - from my garden shed!
Sentiment - is a new Anna Griffin one that I just got in a set from QVC - lovely bunting and greetings stamps - just love them
Card - Bazzill
90 - cut on cricut expression - cindy loo cartridge

See you later with my first Inky Impressions challenge card - yes I know I said that yesterday too - but I never know what day of the week is which for which challenge  - if you know what I mean - I'm amazed I get here at all sometimes!!

I'm entering this card for the following challenges

Fresh brewed - tic tac toe -die cuts twine flowers
Pennys paper-crafty challenges - happy birthday
Celebrate the Occasion - Male birthday - must use circle
Digital Tuesday challenge - Bugs and Blooms
Tuesday throwdown -In the Garden

Hugs Judith xx
