Hi everyone!!, this week it's my turn to set the theme over at Charisma and I've chosen male cards for this weeks challenge...............  I know some people cringe at the thought of doing them but honestly there's no need. We have such an array of fabulous male images available now that I'm sure you won't have any trouble creating something  for the men or boys in your life.
On to my DT card now. I have used an image that I received in a swap ages ago called Hammock Hibernation it's a Gruffies stamp from stampabilities.... coloured  with copics and Pro Markers.The DP is from my stash, sorry don't know the name of it and the sentiment is from LOTV. I've added some buttons and chipboard letters.
Our sponsors this week have as always offered some fabulous prizes for you to win and our very talented Charisma Gals have created some fabulous cards for your inspiration, so why not pop over and have a look.
Thanks for popping in today and I hope you enjoy our challenge.

Hi all, I'm back at last but only to post this weeks challenge at Charisma. Those of you that are regulars to my blog will know that my 91 year old Mum has been in hospital for 7 months now. This week she has been moved into a Nursing Home where she will receive 24 hour care, hopefully she will be okay and settle in quite quickly. As we have had to give up my Mum's house we are now in the proccess of emptying everything and trying to sort out places for all her furniture and personal stuff. Not an easy task I can assure you, how one tiny little lady could have soooooo much stuff is amazing. It's going to take up all of my time for a while so I will only be posting on here for my Charisma challenge and the odd card when I have time. Unfortunately I've had to step down from the Top Tip Tuesday team as I don't have enough spare time to devote to it. However Leanne has left the door open for me to return when I feel able, she's so sweet.

So now onto this weeks challenge at CHARISMA...

For my DT creation I have used a really cute kitty image from our sponsor this week Robyn's Fetish, and coloured it with Copics. Mounted on to Labels 2 Nesties and the papers are this month's freebie 6 x6 paper block with Papercraft Essentials magazine. The flower is made up from a pink packet from the Hobby House and the sentiment is computer generated using the New Day font. The ribbon is from my stash.
Thanks for your visit to my blog today I really appreciate it, and although I may not be commenting a lot I am still trying to keep up with everyone's blogs.
