Men Only!

Hello there! This is my second post for today....if you are looking for my Sweet Stampin DT card please scroll down!
Oh no!! Did you see those dreaded words?? They always make me shudder when I see them in a card challenge....."men only" or "masculine"....yuck!
Not that I'm a man hater or anything....Joe wouldn't be particulary pleased with me for being anti-men...especially as he proved himself to be really romantic this week...for Valentine's day I was cooked a three course meal, with matching wine. He also remembered a card (which featured cupcakes) and even a box of chocolates!
Noooo...I'm just a girlie kinda crafter...anything pink, cute or sparkly and I'm there! I struggle more when I have to make a card fit for a man!!
So, when I saw the challenge this week at My Time to Craft was "men only" I decided I would use one of my favourite manly stamps....I think I probably always get this stamp out for these challenges!!
Pop by the My Time to Craft Challenge blog to see how all the other DT members used the theme.
I've coloured my stamped image with my Promarkers and then I opted for a manly blue and brown colour combo. I was quite pleased with myself for finding that paper that looks a little bit like wood!
To be honest I'm not sure why I struggle with manly cards and I am pleased with how this one has turned out....I suppose practice makes perfect!
I'd also like to enter this card over at Tuesday Throwdown where they have an anything goes challenge for us this week!
Thanks for popping by today,
Wedgie xxx

Looks great, Wedgie! I always struggle with 'men'cards too, you can't just add a few flowers and bling! Really like this- the colours,papers and image work well together!

This is just a fab male card Wedgie - I think you got it just right - I quite like male cards - they're less fussy - just think make it simple - like a man!! hugs judith x

Aha! This is a perfect image for my husband (except this little guy has too much hair LOL). What a wonderful card - I especially like the sentiment, so it can be used for a "just because" type card. Really cute with the blue and brown, Wedgie. I wanted to also thank you for visiting my blog today and leaving a sweet comment. huggers
