House Mouse Challenge #28 - One for the Men


The House Mouse Challenge for this week is to make a masculine card - and it has to be for a grown up male and not a little boy - but do little boys ever really grow up - LOL. I haven't joined in this challenge before but as my stamp collection is growing these are some of my favourite images and I decided it would be fun to play along. I also find masculine cards a little hard to work on so it was an even bigger challenge for me.

I love this image, it's just soo sweet! I've added some Crystal Effects to the sun and to add ripples in the water. The cardstock colours I've used are Chocolate Chip, Basic Black and Very Vanilla. The DP is from SU Designer Prints Series - this one is the 2 sides of one sheet in the Close to Cocoa set.

Aaaawwwww Debbie, how cute. I have this stamp. Great card for the challenge. Doesn't look likely that I'll get in with the House Mouse challenge this week. Had a dreadful day yesterday and I'm still recovering from it.
