Cards For Men Challenge and Anniversary Blog Hop!!

Hi! Welcome to the Cards For Men Anniversary Blog Hop!
If you've come to me via Sarah, you are on the right track. 
If you've just arrived and want to join the hop, please start at the very beginning at Cards For Men

 I'm super excited to be asked by Donna to join her once again for this special occasion as a Guest Designer!
It's hard to believe that Cards for Men is one year old already!!! 
To celebrate there is lots going on with tons of prizes available. 
There are two challenges, both with a Christmas theme. 
The first challenge is...
 Make a card, or a present, or both, the choice is yours.
 The second challenge is..
collect a word from each blog to form a festive phrase.
 (My word is 'WISH').
 At the end of the blog hop you should have 11 words, (Donna will have two words).
Work out the phrase and leave it in the comments back at Cards for Men.

One random winner will be drawn for each category.
You can get all the details and lots of inspiration over at the Cards For Men blog.

Each blog is giving away candy to one lucky winner! 

My candy is sponsored by my beloved Peachy Keen!!


 (Here's a little background into this amazing company)

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 scrap-bookers, card makers, and artists alike. These stamps are sold exclusively online at www.peachykeenstamps.com and at independent stamp and scrapbook stores worldwide. Please visit our website for a complete list of retail locations.


This is the prize for one lucky winner....

It's the 'Happy bird' steel die, (designed by Kathy at Peachy Keen in collaboration with Cottage Cuts)!

 To be in with a chance of winning this fabulous candy, you just need to leave me a comment. Simple!
One random winner will be drawn on 20 December.

Here's my Card.......
The image and phrase is from Whimsie Doodles and coloured with Copics. 
The DP is by My Mind's Eye.
The cute face on the underpants is from the Peachy Keen set
PK-470, Happy New Year Face Assortment!


Here's my Gift

This is made using an envelope for the inside pockets. 
(It's folded in half after gluing the flap down and chopping the top off).
The sentiment is by Papermania.

The blog hop will run until midnight on 19th December and winners will be chosen on 20th.

Your next stop is the lovely Shirley.

What a cute way to use the mens shorts. (Never thought I would see them on the front of a card). The money pocket card is great and could be used for anyone or any holiday, depending on the paper.
Thanks too for the blog candy, that bird is so adorable.
