Cards for Men - Challenge & Blog Hop

Wow, can you believe it's been a year of challenges over at Cards for Men? To celebrate we 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. We'll draw a random winner 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 post. Here's what I made:




I made a card and a small gift box which I'll probably fill with chocolates.  Do you like the image?  It's called 'He won't notice' and it's the first image I've managed to get my husband to draw for me.  I've only been at him for about a year, lol.  I've coloured it using my Promarkers and the backing papers are from my stash (I think Papermania and DCWV).  If anyone would like a copy of the image for their own personal use, you can email me on freebie@donnasden.co.uk and I'll send it out.


Also, we are having an Anniversary Blog Hop. Woohoo!  You can get the full list of blogs over at Cards for Men. At each stop there'll be a word to collect and a candy draw. I've got this fab Greeting Farm Stamp to give away



This is one of the stamps I have left after closing down my shop a couple of months ago.  I'll list the rest of the Greeting Farm Stamps I have on my Leftover Stuff Blog if you're interested in purchasing any at knock down prices.  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.

Each stop will have a word which you should collect to make a festive phrase. I have two words for you and they are both 'A'. 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 Alison. If you lose your way you can go back to Cards for Men to get the full list. Good luck everyone.
