Time for a manly hop :D

If you have hopped here from Alison's blog then you are on the right tracks. If you haven't don't worry you can get the full list of DT blogs and start at the begining of the hop by clicking HERE.

I was mega excited when the wonderful Donna asked me to join the amazing cards for men DT to celebrate their 1st birthdayso of course I could not say no. To celebrate they have lots going on with tons of prizes available. There are two challenges this time, both with a Christmas theme. You can make a card or a present or both, it's up to you. There will be a winner drawn at random for each category and top 3 as usual. You can get all the details and lots more ideas from the Design Team over at the main cards for men blog. I thought I would make a card and gift set and after much thought I just could not stop getting inspired by this great Kenny K image called Cheers Dude :D So what do you think? I have made a bottle bag for the beer and matching card. I coiours Cheers dude with promakers and then glazed his pint so it looks more like a glass. The sentiment I did on the computer and the peel offs are from my stash and the paper from my scrap box lol
I am also entering this set in for the following challenges:
Creative Inspirations - Christmas gift
Fussy and fancy - Anything but a card
Secret crafter - Christmas




Now for the bit you really need ........at each stop there'll be a word to collect and a candy draw. I've got this brilliant prize to give away:


5 digi's from The Stamping Boutique

I'm Tracey Malnofski, the artist and owner of The Stamping Boutique. My store has been open since September 2009. I am currently a stamp artist for UnityStampCo. and I've worked for InStyleStamps, Squigglefly, and TheDigiShack in the past. I'm a professional artist and an active member of the Artist' Guild in my community. I have quite a busy household with a husband, 3 teenagers, 5 mini-dachshunds and an Appaloosa mare. It's noisy, but I love them all. I'm truly blessed.
"The Stamping Boutique" is dedicated to quality products and original artwork. We not only provide wonderful digital images in our store, but also several lines of red rubber images. Our designers are chosen for their character and personality,as well as, their beautiful designs. We work hard to give you our very best. Thank you so much for having us as your sponsor this week.

To be in with a chance of winning this you just need to leave a comment at the end of this post. A random winner will be drawn on 20 December 2010.

Once you have collected all the words you should be able to make a festive phrase. My word is 'YOU'. At the end of the blog hop you should have 11 words, work out the phrase and leave it in the comments back at cards for men. The blog hop will run until midnight on 19th December 2010 and a winner will be chosen on 20th December.

Your next stop is (KITTY). If you lose your way you can go back to cards for men to get the full list. Good luck everyone.
