Morning all.
It's Tuesday again so it must be time for a new challenge over at Cardz4Guyz.
This week we would like to see your masculine creations on the theme of -


Now, I was again scratching my head and trawling through my stash of stamps to find some inspiration for this challenge, as nothing sprang immediately to mind. Then I saw the latest challenge over at Card Concept and came up with this.

and this is the inspiration photo that fired up the little grey cells.

I saw this and thought Mates, Menagerie, perhaps Masking and Missing you!
I've had the DoCrafts stamp for a few years, another bargain bucket buy, it's from the Woodland Friend's set. The characters look quite sad so I used the miss you sentiment from the same set and the background was SU Hardwood in DI Weathered Wood. After stamping the 'Mates' on a log, I coloured them using Copics, then fussy cut them and mounted them flat on the hardwood panel. This was then popped up on pads on a white base card.

So what will you chose to be inspired by?
Check out the rest of the DT's inspirational cards over at the Cardz4Guyz blog and why not join in.
