Morning all.
If you are in the UK, hope you had a good Bank Holiday and didn't get too wet.
My doesn't time fly when you are having fun, its soon comes around to another Tuesday and new challenge at Cardz4Guyz.

This week the lovely Jan has chosen

as the topic for your inspiration.

Now when I read this on the calender I was a bit flummoxed as its definitely something I wouldn't normally look at and I don't have anything in my stash that really covers this genre. However, my wonderful friend Di mention she had some bits and pieces so last time she was over she lent them to me. and here is the result.

I even had to look up a definition of steampunk before I started so I hope I got it right!
I used some papers from a Debbie Moore CD, a sheet of Graphic 45 paper, a set of cog dies from X-Cut and a set from Sizzix by Tim Holtz to make this box card. Card and brads from the stash.

OK, why not challenge yourself to have a go, you never know what you can create unless you try!
Pop over to the main site to see what the rest of the DT have been up to for your inspiration.
If you feel you would like to join us on the DT or if you fancy a spot as GD then also pop along to see how to enter, can't wait to see what you come up with.

I shall be joining in with the following challenges:-
Creative Inspirations - Anything Goes - option of a sketch

Thanks for looking and come back soon.
