Here Come The Boys Launch Challenge

Morning Blogland.
Well, how excited am I this morning - today is the day that my friend Woo's and my new challenge blog launches it's first challenge. It started as a fly by comment at one of my classes, then it has grown to a real life blog, and now we are launching our first challenge. So please come on over and join in our ....

Anything Goes Challenge at Here Comes The Boys.

The aim of the blog is to encourage all you fantastic crafters out there to make more male orientated cards and projects, as every challenge we run will be for the men of your lives.

I am also luck enough to be sponsoring the first challenge from my shop - Ewe 2 Can Craft - and up for grabs for the winner is a set of 5 pastel ProMarkers.

I decided I would use one of my favourite images for my launch card, so have gone for the boy and dog riding a bike from LOTV (by the way, I can't wait for their new releases on 11th May - the sneaky peaks look fantastic). The backing papers are from Basic Grey, and to complete the card I have used a little Craftwork Cards card candy (another small addiction).

I hope it will inspire you to come on over and support our new challenge - Please :o)

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges;

Pollycraft Monday - fun and games

Craft Your Passion - show us your layers

My Time To Craft - perfect pets

Creative Card Crew - child's play

Papercutz - anything goes


Crafts 4 Eternity - anything goes

Thanks so much for looking and I hope you will come on over and join in the fun.

Hugs Sharon x
