August challenge

Good morning, I hope you are all ready for our new challenge where this month our theme is..........

********Make it Masculine********

I know lots of us struggle with those male cards so this is the perfect opportunity to get some made.........and don't forget you can enter up to three times. As always the focal element of your work must reflect the theme and be hand stamped (or digital image).........a stamped sentiment or element added to a mainly stencilled or die cut card will not be eligible. You can check our challenge rules here.


We have some lovely Crafts Too stamps which are perfect for masculine cards for this months winner.

This month Emma joins us as our Guest Designer with this fun card
