It's a man thing

Good morning folks.
I thought I better make a comeback for the latest challenge at Cardz4Guyz as it was my choice of theme. So after an enforced absence of a couple of months following a broken arm, I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things.
For this week's challenge I chose the theme of -


A bloke isn't happy unless he has his own little retreat in my experience. Big or small, indoors or out, a man cave is where they go for some relaxation away from the OH!
My OH has grown his man cave with each subsequent house move, 6' x 8' shed at the top of the garden to single attached garage to a tractor shed as well as a brick built outhouse the size of a small bungalow. I even bought him a sign for for it for his birthday a couple of years ago! 
So your card needs to show something that blokes do in sheds, gardening, pigeons, somewhere to tinker or simply a place for their toys!
There is a programme here in the UK about the wonderful world of sheds and their owners, its amazing what fantastic ideas they come up with, not all of them by blokes either! Check this link to see some of the bizarre themed sheds and outbuildings.

Here's my card based on a rather typical use of a Man Cave I think.

This LOTV digi image was coloured with Copics before being fussy cut and added to the base card.
Sentiment from Uniko and some MFT small numbers added in black over a scrap of DP on a A6 card blank.

Please check out the rest of the team here for more inspiration on the theme, but don't forget to make it masculine.

I'm joining in over at:-

  3. Now that's the sort of man cave my other half can understand. He once bought a garage with a house attached! Not the other way around. Love Dawn x
