It's Egg-stra Special over at Cards for Men

Our challenge theme this time on Cards for Men is 'Easter'.  So let's see all your Easter cards and projects.  We have a wonderful sponsor in the form of Peachy Keen Stamps.  They've provided an absolutely fabulous prize of two stamp sets.  Here's a bit about them:

Peachy Keen Stamps is a family owned and operated leading clear stamp manufacturer based out of Northeast Wisconsin. Our stamps are made with the highest quality polymer on the market today, giving them their unique peach tint. The whimsical images designed by Kathy Jakopovich coupled with their durability make them a favorite amongst scrapbookers, card makers, and artists alike. These stamps are sold exclusively online at and at independent stamp and scrapbook stores worldwide. Please visit our website for a complete list of retail locations.

Take a hop over to the main site where you can find full prize details and some fab inspiration from the rest of the design team.

To make this card I used a fab digi-stamp called Merry Little Eggheads from AI Factory.  I coloured him with Promarkers, made a mount from Dovecraft Textured Card and set him down with foam pads onto some DP that came in last years Easter issue of Let's Make Cards.  Sometimes the easiest cards are the most effective, dont you think?

One last thing, I'd like to wish my teamie, Pat, a very Happy Birthday for today.  Please pop over and send her some birthday cheer.
