Week 595–masculine

Good morning lovely crafters, we hope you all had a fantastic week last week and enjoyed the sunshine.  Thank you for all your gorgeous entries for last week’s ‘make it cute’ challenge ; we were delighted to see lots of lovely entries.  As always the DT had a brilliant time visiting your blogs and seeing your super cute creations.  Please pop back later to find out our lucky winner and to see who Sue has chosen as her Top 5 Passionista.

Onto the new challenge, which has been set by Linda from Team 2 and she has given us the theme of ‘masculine’.   As Father’s Day is just around the corner Linda thought it would be perfect time to make some masculine creations.  I know it’s not everyone’s favourite subject but we all need masculine creations from time to time.  It doesn’t have to be a Father’s day creation but it does have to be masculine themed this week to be entered into the prize draw.  We hope you’ll have fun and can’t wait to see what you create. Don’t forget you can enter any type of creation it doesn’t have to be a card.  The only rule we have is use your markers and have fun!

Our generous sponsor this week is Colour of Love Digis who are offering one lucky winner a prize of 3 digi images from their online store.  Most of the DT have used images from Colour of Love on their creations this week.

The design team have worked their magic once again this week and have created beautiful cards to inspire you (please click on their names to visit their personal blogs):

Linda

Unfortunately Linda is in the middle of moving home so is unable to participate this week.
