It's Digi Choosday Day - Week 33 - All About The Men

Hello everybody

Hope you had a good weekend and you got plenty of crafting done.  I've been doing lots of things - crocheting, knitting, card making (of course) and decorating.

Well this week's challenge over on Digi Choosday this week is 'All About The Men'

Now a few weeks ago when we had our 'Use An Old Collection' challenge I created a teacher card using the female teacher from the Work & Play 3 Collection.  So with that in mind I've now created a male teacher card in exactly the same format but this time using the coloured office guy from Work & Play 2 to make a stepper style card.  I've used the embellishments and the paper from the Work & Play 3 Collection to make the base of the card.  You can also get the office guy as a black and white digi for you to colour yourself.  

Here's my crafty make:






Click on the thumb linkies below to be taken to the Polkadoodles website to get the collections.

I can’t wait to see your male themed creations this week.  And remember, it’s not just for cards, you can create ANYTHING you want from home décor to cards, just remember to follow the rules listed in the blog.  

And not only can you win a fabulous prize if you are in the top 3/random prize winner but you can also grab your discount code.  How fab is that?  The discount code only lasts for a short amount of time so you’d better head off over there right now to grab it.
