Get Masculine at Sentimental Sundays...


Yes the challenge at Sentimental Sundays this week is to create a masculine project (with a sentiment), those of you who know me (or even just pop by occasionally) will probably realise that masculine cards are not my favourite to make (I think it is because I find them hard to embellish) but this card was fine (perhaps because it is not exactly the MOST masculine card you will ever see lol).  I used this fab "Seaside Ted" image from Di's Digi Downloads & coloured it with ProMarkers.  I finished off with 3 gems, 2 punched crabs, net, 2 gingham ribbons, ticket sentiment & a metal clip. 

The challenges:
Bunny Zoe - Fun in the Sun
Fairy Fun - On Holidays
Crafts & Me - Summertime
Secret Crafter - Holidays
Passion for ProMarkers - Gingham (ribbon)
PaperTake - Hot, Hot, Hot
Fussy & Fancy - Summer
Crafty Purple Frog - Summer Fun
Fuzzy Wuzzy - Get Punchy
The Craft Garden - Use a Bird on Your Project
