Hi guys, hope you’re
all keeping well and happy x It’s been another quick one this month and I’ve
been wishing the days away as we’re off on holiday on Tuesday :-D It must seem
like I go away all the time as on my challenge last post we were heading out
the door to Ireland for a long weekend but we’re just taking our holiday’s a
bit earlier than normal (I’ll be feeling sorry for myself in the 2nd
half of the year, I’m sure).
I’ve got a lovely
friend who lives in Lyon and we’ve been meaning to go out and visit her, and
her partner, for a while now. We were just going to visit for a long weekend originally
but decided that as we were headed over to France it might make sense to
squeeze Paris and Disneyland in and extend the holiday to a week. I’m super
excited! Mr C was not as giddy about Disneyland as myself but has come around
to the idea after seeing a number of attractions he is interested in at the
Disney Studio’s park. I just know that once he’s there he’ll be skipping about
like a happy man child :-D I’ll pop some pics on my personal blog when I get
Right, on to
challenge business :-)
We had another amazing challenge last month – so many beautiful creations. I
was really inspired – being relatively new to the card making world myself I hadn’t
realised how many gorgeous designs could be made from adding a few extra
folds!! My card to do list is getting quite big now!! Thank you to everyone who
joined us – we’re so grateful for your entries x
I've run the numbers through the random number generator and the winners for the February challenge are:

Hello, Angela here! "Man Cards" are always a challenge for me...I have a hard time stepping away from the glitter! Emma's darling image reminds me of warmer times to come...soon I hope.... After all, doesn't everything taste better on the grill? I can't wait to see what you create for our challenge!
Audrey here and I am loving the New Male Releases from Flat Friends this month! I have used "Gamer" for today's card. I love this image because this is exactly what my 11 year old son looks like when he is playing on his gaming system. I colored this great image with Copics and Atyou Spicas and cut with dies from Frantic Stamper. Corners also done with a die from my stash and sentiment is from a clear stamp and cut with Nestie. Sure hope you like it and will come play in our challenge!!
Hello everyone! Laura here! I had fun making this Guy Card and used the new Gamer Digi as well. I kept the paper simple by Bo Bunny and the sentiment "BRING ON YOUR BEST GAME AND YOU WILL ALWAYS SUCCEED" is from Papertrey Ink and I thought I perfect match. Hope you all have a great month, and look forward to seeing your projects.
Hi there, Sally here. I love these new images from Emma Canning. Great for young men and boys. This card I have made for the challenge but also my friend's son whose birthday is coming up soon. I found some striped cardstock I had in my crafty stash and roughed it up around the edges and adhered it to the card blank. I coloured the image with Graph'it markers using they greys, except for the hair and skin of course. Cut a ribbon strip and added a sentiment. There it is. I hope he likes it.
Hi guys, Em here x I’ve never done a boy card challenge before so I was excited about this one. My card it pretty simple (as usual) – I decided to go with the ‘Music Time’ digi, coloured it with copics, and added a couple of boy-friendly papers to the inside of the card. The striped paper is from the Lost and Found ‘Blush’ paper pad, and the grey plain paper is from the Indie Chic ‘Saffron’ paper pad (both My Mind’s Eye). I hope you’ll join us for this challenge – I’m really looking forward to seeing more boy cards xx
Remember that you don't need to use a Flat Friends digi to enter our challenges anymore but there is an extra prize on offer if you do :-) A list of the challenge rules can be found on the tab at the top of this page xx
