Creatalicious Challenge #1

Recently the ultra talented Bec and Cheryl launched a fun new monthly challenge - Creatalicious Challenges - and it's just as well it's monthly as it's taken me forever to find the time to play along!!!

Their first challenge was inspired by Father's Day here in Australia - which is this coming Sunday. You need to make a male card including the colour brown and some metal. When I saw this digital image from Mo Manning at Digital Pencil Too I knew it was the image for me - or at least for my train obsessed brother-in-law! I find male cards hard - I keep wanting to tizz them up with other bits'n'pieces - but I think I stopped myself in time here - LOL. A bit of texture with the cuttlebug embossing, some rich colours and some metal and that's it!

The sun is shining outside and I'm heading off for lunch with my sister and mum to celebrate my mum's birthday - no complaints from me today - LOL. Hope your day is just as much fun!!!
