House Mouse Monday Challenge - Men

The theme for the challenge at House Mouse this week is :~ Men

Thats right!! We are having a masculine challenge. We would like you to make anything for a male, not the young kind cause that would be to easy but for the grown up kind most of us struggle to make cards (or anything else) for.

Check out what our lovely DT have come up with to help inspire you. Don't forget to check out their blogs for more details!!

I chose to make a CD holder for my son. The postage (to Germany) can be expensive so if he wants the instructions he will have to download them. My 'silly' head tends to come out with the House Mousies as they are such great fun to work with.
I used denim paper I bought in Germany and download orange paper from Digital Scrapbook Art. The images are 'Say Cheese' and 'Upside down' which I coloured with watercolours. The jumbo brads I coloured with peel off pens to give them a more 'bronzed' look and the Smile, Laugh, Giggle sentiment is Inkadinkado.


Materials
BC - bazzill : BP - Download from Digital Scrapbook Art : 'Jeans' paper ? - bought in Germany : Images - Say Cheese & Upside down : Rowney watercolours : Sentiment - Inkadinkado : Rest from stash
