Here's One For The Boys

Good morning everyone, we are almost half way through March now I can't believe how fast the year is flying by! I better start thinking about Christmas cards at this rate!

Today sees the start of a brand new challenge over at Delightful Challenges and this week the theme is:


So anything for a guy whether it be old or young.  We always want more male cards for our stash don't we so here is a perfect excuse to make one.  I have gone for the younger model:

Items Used:

Birthday Cake Josh from Digital Delights Available Here

Birthday Sentiments Set Available Here
Papers: Linen Cardstock and Red Card from PaperMill, Patterned from Scrap box
Markers: Copics
Dies: Lil' Inker Balloon Die
Spellbinders Grand Nesties
Broken China Distress Ink for Circle Mat
Square Punch to make Fishtails
Stardust Stickles
Twine from Stash

Our sponsor this week is none other than:

The Cutting Cafe will be giving the lucky winner 3 sets from the store.  To enter you don't need to use a Digital Delights image but we love it so much if you do that you can enter twice with a Digital Delights image.  You have one week to enter so get your skates on.  Please pop over to the Delightful Challenges site to see what the rest of the Design Team have done there are some fabulous creations!

I would like to enter the following challenges:
