Tammy's Scrapin Corner! Challenge #44. DT Post

Good Morning Bloggers!

Monday already!  Wow time surely goes quickly.  Another start to another week.

I really hope you are all well!.  Thank you so much for your kind and thoughtful comments on my blog concerning my health.  It is very much appreciated.

Today is the start of another challenge over at Tammy's Scrapin Corner!  The theme for this week is "Manly Card".  So basically anything for a man or something that a gentleman would like.  Now its very rare I make cards for males, for some reason I find it hard to create for them as Im a very girly girl lol.  So this certainly was a challenge for me but I think I did quite well considering lol.

If you would like to become a Guest Designer for us for one of our challenges please when entering your card put GDT after your name.  We also have a Guest Designer joining us for this week.  Please welcome her and go and show her some love on her blog.  Her card is just stunning for this challenge.  Her Bio:

Greetings from the Great White North! My name is Tammy and I live in Calgary, Alberta Canada. I am a happily married WAHM to a lovely three year old boy named Riley who is my greatest inspiration. We also have 2 pound puppies Pickles (a pug) and Tonka ( a bijon). I was so excited to find that I was going to be a guest designer for Tammy's Scrapin' Corner.

I've been a crafter for several years, starting first with scrapbooking, then branching out into cards and now I have jumped on the SMASHbook wagon! I love to create! I'm a big fan of 6x6 paper packs, ribbon and my buttons although I seem to always collect more than I use I am often searching the internet looking for inspiration and new techniques and so you never know when I might stop by your blog to say hello!

Besides crafting I also enjoy traveling, country music, movies and I have a serious Diet Coke addiction!
Please feel free to stop by my blog at and say hi! I'd love to hear from you.
Now onto my Card for todays challenge:

Morning Sharon, A beautiful card today, I'm like you and don't particularly relish making male cards, I'm a girlie girl too and like all the flowers, frills and ribbon etc, but it is always great to have inspiration for male cards, thank you for sharing.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Hello, thank you for your lovely comment on my blog. You've asked about the technique at the pink/blue scene. I watch the videos from Stampscapes and so I learned how to do. Please have a look here:

Sorry for my school English.
