My swan song for Cards for Men!

Well, I was at the birth of Cards For Men, so to hang up my hat is a little difficult to say the least.
I've had a wonderful time with Donna and the special girls on the CFM DT.
But, it's time to move on as I want to get back to 'girlier' cards.
But before I say my goodbyes, I have one last card for you for the Cards For Men Challenge.

Sponsored by .............. Meljen's Designs

Here is a short intro by Melissa
"Meljen's Designs is a digital stamp company owned and illustrated by Melissa Jenkins. She illustrates whimsical, fun digital images inspired by her kids and family. The Meljen's Designs store officially launched on April 1 and it is steadily growing".
(Please visit the store to find more of Melissa's wonderful images! They are a dream to work on).

For my card I used the image 'A boy and his wagon'.......available HERE.

Melissa's designs are a dream to colour and I love the whimsical 'stitched' style she uses.
This image is coloured with Copics as usual and the DP is DCWV's Nana's Nursery...Baby Boy.
You were right Donna!! Ha Ha.
The sentiment is from Peachy Keen's Vivienne & Friends stamp set. YEP! I'm the Vivienne! Whoo Hoo.
Finally, a piece of SU Bashful Blue ribbon and three brads from my stash.
Bob on over to the CFM blog and check out the fantastic cards the other DT members have made. I think they are the best yet. Give 'em some love and please play along. you know you want to.

Well, that's it my friends. My last DT card for Cards for Men. I hope you like it.
(Keep an eye out on the CFM blog as I'm sure Donna will be putting a DT call out pretty soon).

Thanks for calling by

Wow, what an amazing card! I can't tell you how bad I want the viv set from PKS. It is on my wishlist and will be the first thing I purchase when I get some extra cash. TFS and have a fantastic week.
