Well the theme this week over at Polka Doodles is . . . make a MALE themed project". Why do crafters squirm when we have to do the dreaded MALE/BOY cards? The one's that completely throw me are the awful MALE TEEN cards . . . other than the recipients are a whole new evolutionary species . . . they also have so many things that they are into these days, it's hard to know where to start! Well I cheated . . . but only a little . . . and made a card for my adorable nephew who turned 4 on Monday . . .
I have used the "Fathers Day / Family" downloadable kit from Polka Doodles for all the papers on my card, plus on all the stars. However the robot toppers/ elements are from the "NOT for girls" CD. Teague's name has been made using left over rub-on letters from various alphabet sheets and they have been mounted onto "Fathers Day / Family" papers. A little manly twine for an added embellishment . . . only because ribbon wouldn't do and my card is finished.
Now I know by now you are shouting at your PC for me to stop waffling and explain about the Polka Doodles Blog Hop and here goes . . . .
- start at the Polka Doodles Challenge Blog and then follow each of the DT blogs in order.
- collect a WORD from each of the DT blogs . . . keep these in a SAFE PLACE as you will need these words at the end of the blog hop as they give you a special message !!!! Can't say any more !!!
- Each DT member is offering candy along the hop, so make sure you comment on each of their blogs to be in with a chance of winning some yummy candy.
- The blog hop will end on Sunday 5th June (noon GMT), so you have a while to enter and also hop along with us!
- There will also be a prize offered on the main Polka Doodles Challenge blog too, so you have oodles and oodles of chances of winning.
OK . . . you should of hopped over here from En's (Envys) Blog, collected her word and of course entered her candy draw . . . you now need to collect my word, which is . . . remember . . . and now don't forget to enter my candy draw before hopping over to Em's Blog.
Here's a photo of the goodies I am offering one lucky winner . . .
. . . the new Sprinkles of Kraft CD and a selection of stamped images from the NEW Wonderland stamp set. I will also be sending 5 other runner's up a selection of the same stamped images too (with a few extras thrown in!). Please note that Nikky has given ME permission to stamp a selection of images and share them as prizes for the Blog Hop only.
