A Crafty Little Place Challenge #43 - Create a Male Themed Card

Wow, already June 15?!  Time is a-flying.  This month is full of goodness-preschool graduation, 4th grade almost over, my dad celebrated his 80th birthday, Father's day, and the official start of summer next week.   It's been our tradition to hit the shore the first full day of summer vacation and we are all so ready to hit the beach!

 Can it get any better?  Well, it can if you want to celebrate a man in your life and you're feeling rather crafty!  This week's challenge at A Crafty Little Place is to create a male themed project.  I don't really think it matters if the "man" in your life happens to be 80 years old or only 3 years old, just share your manly creation with us! 

This week the Design Team used paper from the "Little Boy Blue" Collection which is perfect for this challenge.  The man in my life is celebrating a birthday next month (no peeking hubs) so I figured My Guy Ian and Little Boy Blue were a good match for his card.  Once again, I'm putting my Claudia & Co. "So Random Sentiments in Spanish" to good use.  Perfect card for my man, even down to a touch of grey. 
(Did I say that?)
Stampin' Up Oval Punch, Oval Scallop Punch and Corner Rounder

And the lovely host of the challenge this week, oh, ME!  So come on and join in and show us your male themed creations.  I'll be coming by to visit you and choosing next week's winners. I look forward to seeing what you create.  Please add your cards, layouts or altered items to "inlinkz" on the DT blog by Sunday, June 20th at 9:00 PM EST.   Happy crafting!!

I happen to love men cards because they are harder to make due to the product line out there. It is often too cute for the 80 year old guy. But I think they love the card because we make them. A reflection of them in our craft. Have a great day Cara. How is your puppy. Can you do a picture post of the pup. I still miss mine.
