Anjie - I know most people find it hard to do male cards and I am one of those people! When I saw this challenge I thought oh no, but then I saw the Boys Hoot Download Bundle I had lots of ideas. Aren't these owls just adorable! The image, the papers and the sentiment are all from the bundle, I've just added some bakers twine and some buttons. In the bundle there are 11 coloured embellishments, 8 sentiments and 11 A4 papers, and is only £3.39 at the moment, and is an instant download so you can get crafting straight away!
Zoe - So for this challenge I couldn't resist using this gorgeous Teddy Bear I coloured him with a mix of markers including the fab Graph It's  I kept the project simple and use up some of my offcuts of card. I embossed them using some folders from my stash. Simple matting and layering and the sentiment finished it off.
Scatty Jan ohhh I am really shocking at Boys cards - I must really get to grips with them - For my card I have used the lovely  Mr Mousey Is'nt he a cutie , love his little bit of attitude - the papers are from Tail Feather Download bundle - I put this together using serif  xx

Debbi - I don't know about you, but I always find it a bit of a struggle to do cards for the male of the species...lol. But I have to admit the idea of this card for this weeks challenge came to me quite quickly...yay! My waistcoat card was made using the 'Boys Hoot Download Bundle' and the buttons I used are from the 'Tail Feather Download Bundle'.


Katrina - Boys, they are hard work but the wonderful Sugar Boys Download Bundle from the store will make your life easy!! This week I once again chose to make a printable card, Im really enjoying making them for something different!   I kept this one quite simple as boys really don't do OTT!! 

Susan -This week I have had so much fun making this card ,its for my Grandsons 8th Birthday .
I have used paper from Love will Flourish and the Digi image is from Bonbon Belles CD
I used graph'it markers to colour him in

Jo- I have decorated a clipboard for my son James this week to use on our stargazing trip in the peak district (I've added some photos of the night on my blog x) I turned a boring pink clipboard into a star covered, personalised one so he can make notes like a real scientist ;) I have used papers from Sugar Boys collection and added faux stitching around the edge.

Sally - Hi there.  Today's challenge is For the Boys! - Umm.... Boys and Men are so difficult to do. I decided to use my Cherryblossom Lane CD Rom for this week's challenge.  I chose a coloured image and some backing papers and an embellishment and took them into my Craft Artist.  I matted and layered the background papers and added a shadow, placed my fence behind Mr. Rabbit and added the shadows.  I am quite new to this but I am enjoying playing with it and getting good results. I think.
So there's the inspiration for today! 
I'm sure you'll agree that they're all superb makes again this week, love love love all the work these guys have put in!
