Hmmm....out of my comfort zone here!

Hello there - happy hump day!

I hope you are all keeping well and are having a fab week so far!

So, can you believe that we're already in October? I know I say it every month....but I'm really not sure where this year has flown by to! Its time for a new challenge over at Christmas at Sweet Stampin and this month's challenge really stumped me!

This month we want to see masculine Christmas cards. Now any regular visitor to my blog will know how much I struggle with masculine cards at the best of time! I tend to make very girly cards...a bit of pink, a bit of purple....and lots of sparkle and I'm happy! Add a cupcake or two and I'm beaming! As soon as anyone mentioned "masculine" however I shudder a little!!

So, I thought long and hard about this theme....and created the following.....

Now, I'm not entirely happy with this creation....its definitely masculine...but is it a Christmas card? I'm not so sure! I've stamped my tree image and decorated it with my Stickles. I have then selected several different masculine backing papers to make up the background. My sentiment was created on my computer.
Pop by the Christmas at Sweet Stampin challenge blog to see some great inspiration from the DT....they've created some real masculine Christmas cards for you!!
While you're there you can also find out about our fab sponsor this month and the prize we have on offer for you....
I'd also like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Thanks for popping by today,

This is the perfect card to mail, as well as for a male. :) Nice play on words there... The tree is an awesome winter tree image and the papers are perfect .. masculine in every way. You can't go wrong with plaid for a guy...they love it. (My guy wears plaid jackets--and I still love him!) Great card, Wedgie! --Gail
