Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge 104! A Masculine Card.

Hi all you crafty gals out there! Hope you are having a great weekend. I am, I am taking some time out to design a few cards to make with some crafty friends of mine next week. It's been soooo... long since we last did this, it's really long overdue. Life has a habit of getting in the way of doing fun stuff, which is very important too. Anyway, I have been having a ball messing about and trying to find ideas, I wish I could do it more often.

Okay, back to some other really fun stuff! This week's hostess with the mostest is our own fun and fabulous Angie and she would like us to make a masculine card. I'm always happy to do one of those as I'm always short of cards for guys. Mind you, this one isn't as much one for a guy as it is one of a guy. I really adore this Santa image and I hadn't yet coloured him up. Isn't he just the cutest Santa? I used my trusty Copics to colour him, then I cut him out using my Labels 1 Nesties. I then cut out a frame using the outside edge of the die in Cool Caribbean. I used a dark brown card base with some Kiwi Kiss matted onto it and some gorgeous Christmas Eve Chowder paper by Jillibean Soup. The main square has the words of 'Deck the Halls' on it and I love it. I used some multicoloured striped paper on the left side, matted onto some Real Red. I tied some red raffia onto the piece, made a bow and then tied a button on using some natural raffia. I stamped 'Jolly Wishes' from Kraftin' Kimmie's Holiday Sentiments on some more Cool Caribbean, which I punched out with my window punch, then glued it onto some more Kiwi Kiss, cut out with my Oval Punch. Easy Peasy!

Now let's see your masculine card creations! Make sure you link them to Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge Blog for a chance to win Bruce the Shark, which Angie has used on her awesome card.

Don't forget also that Kimmie has her Frugal Friday Specials again this weekend, until Sunday night in fact. They are Friends Are For Hugging, Cutthroat Lizzie, Jilly the Jellyfish, Fanny, Scripture Quotes and Dancing Dylan.

Be sure to come back next week as we will be previewing the November stamps leading up to the Release on Sunday the 20th.

Okay, so go and stamp your little hearts out, (pretty please?)
