Challenge 9 - MEN!

Our challenge this week over at the Sugar Bowl is to make a card for the most difficult of the species ~ MEN!
Please make a card, or other craft project, using a Sugar Nellie stamp for a male at any age at all, young, old or 'in between'

Now, as most men seem to be a mystery... So will the prize for this challenge. (oohh how exciting ~ I love surprises!!)

Right... So I decided to make an anniversary card for my hubby. (It's next month Charlie if your reading... (LOL) Anyways I have always loved this image and thought this phrase went perfect for the image and an anniversary card.I have distressed all the edges again with my scissors. After I made the card I remembered this metal fish that I received ages ago from a RAK. (Glad I held onto to it!)

Paper: Making Memories
Inks: Distress Inks
Accessories: buttons and twine ~ stash, Lace raffia ~ Papercellar


Well make sure to stop by and see the rest of the DT's cards!! They are fabulous and good inspiration ~ I know I have a hard time coming up with male cards!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
