Our next challenge at Crafty Emma's - Men Only!!

Hello peeps   - well I'm glad to say I got through the team building session without any bust ups and the chocolate making was great fun!!  In fact, I am the very proud winner of decorate the lollipop!!  Guess what my prize was - yep, a box of chocolates!! Was going to post my winning creation to show you but was  busy last night catching up with my DT commenting and packing my stuff for a lovely crafting day with best mates Lesley and Alex.  Great start to the weekend - and on Sunday I must do some paperwork , sadly not the crafting kind but bills and filing, yuck. Still hope to be able to show you something  from our day on Sunday. 
Back to what I came on for, and that's our next challenge at Crafty Emma's  chosen by the lovely lady herself and that is Men Only - don't worry it's cards for men that we want, not cards made only by men!!
I wanted to make a card for one of post 'boys' at work who was turning 65 but still staying on at work!!  He's a bit of a legend at work, loves his golf, drink and a flutter and is always coming up saying things he shouldn't to HR but we love him!  You can see why I used this Flippin Men image which I partly paper-pieced with Pink Paislee Old School papers from Emma's store.  I've used the matching papers for my matting to tie it all up and some Card Candi also from Emma's.

Emma is offering this fabby  Paws fur a Moment Stamp Set as the prize this week, so hope to see lots of great men cards in blog land.

Don't forget to pop by the challenge to see the fabulous cards by my DT buddies and to check if you're the lucky winner of last week's challenge.

Have a great weekend, and thanks for popping in!!!
