Cards for Men and some Easter cards

I've been mad busy this last week or so and, unfortunately, I never got my DT card done for Cards for Men.  Luckily the rest of the team made fantastic cards so it's not noticeable, lol.  The theme this time on Cards for Men is 'Water' and the prize is 3 digi images from Hope Jacare.  Claire has always supported Cards for Men, in fact she was our first sponsor, so I'm really sorry not to have a card to show you.  Please take the time to visit her shop and also pop over to Cards for Men to see the great DT work.  I hope to see your cards over there.

I do have some cards to show though.  These were made a few weeks back for Crafty Ribbons.  I was lucky enough to get some free ribbon samples from their Easter range in return for a couple of samples.

 Both cards have decoupage images which were die-cut so nice and quick.  All ribbons were from Crafty Ribbons and the papers, cards and chipboard stickers were from an Easter issue of Let's Make Cards (had since last easter!).  I found it quite hard making cards for somebody else and really worried whether they'd be up to scratch.

I have to say, though, when I saw Ali's photos I was quite proud.

I'd like to enter these cards into the following challenges:

Guylou's Inimitability - anything goes

Dream Valley Challenges - anything goes
Gingerloft - Furry friends
Crazy Challenge - Here comes spring
