A big welcome to all of my lovely followers and visitors to my little space in the crafting world of blogland! I love colouring, drool over every embellishment and love to 'look' at papers (never mind using them) - some are just TOO good to use lol. I hope you enjoy your little wander through my creative world and would love to feel that I may have inspired some of you in some small way. Happy Crafting to you all and I hope you will stop by again soon!

Scribble & Scrap Challenge #9

Morning Everyone! Hope you're all keeping well and warm in this miserable, wet weather we seem to be inundated with! Roll on Spring I say ....... with the hope of getting a bit of blue skies and that big yellow thing! Can't remember what it's called, but I'm sure it'll come back to me ;) 

Well, today is the start of Challenge 9 at Scribble & Scrap and, as always, it's

The winner of the challenge will receive a fabulous £15 voucher to spend in the Scribble & Scrap Shop, however, should the winner have used a Scribble & Scrap product, the voucher will be raised to an even more fabulous £20.  Also, as from today, our Top 3 will each receive a £5 voucher.  How fantastic is that!  To be in with a chance of winning the fab prizes, please check out the RULES to make sure you don't miss out!

My card today is (shock, horror!) a masculine one!!! I don't do many of these as I really struggle with the embellishment side of it all LOL.  I do love to over embellish things, but I'm don't think there are many men who would appreciate a flowery, glittery, fancy filled card .... or, if there are, they don't let on ;)  Anyway, I couldn't resist making one with the fun new images that have arrived in abundance in the shop - aptly named THE PUGLIES!

Introducing Charles ....

.... and what a handsome chap he is too!!

I coloured him up with Copics to match my new bargain 12" x 12" papers, which were on sale in The Range.  They are from the Papermania Christmas in the Country pad, and, although there are a few with Christmas designs, the majority of the pad is definitely usable for any other time of year.  I made the tartan 'football' to mat Charles onto by using my Xcut Hexagon dies and fitting them all nicely together, with a little chop here and there around the edges.  

Well, I hope you like my attempt at masculine and would urge you to pop over to the Challenge to see what fabulous and fun creations my teamies have come up with this time.  We certainly can't wait to see what you create!

I would like to enter Charles into the following:
