Lexi's Creations...One for the lads

Hi Susan here...

Can you believe it will be the beginning of December later this week, Christmas is just around the corner with all its excitement....ooooh I can't wait!! I am just a kid at heart I think, I love this time of year, giving handmade cards and presents to friends and family and seeing their faces, its wonderful and I always look forward to it.

Today at Lexi's Creations we decided to have a challenge that sometimes is hard for some people, but the men in our lives deserve to have a nice handmade card just like us girls, so the theme of the new challenge is 'One for the lads' and it can be a birthday or Christmas or anything else card, its up to you.
For full details of the challenge, our sponsor and to set you eyes on some great inspiration from the design team call across to Lexi's Creations.

Now onto my card....

I chose to make a man's/boy's birthday card to cover the theme of the challenge, I am always short of masculine cards to give away!
I have used gingham backing papers available from Bev Rochester's blog. I often change the colour of these backing papers on my computer to suit the colour scheme I am using but these two I left alone.
The ribbon is from my stash, the flowers are from Prima with buttons from my button box.
The hanging sign is a die, I cut it out of antique gold mirri and slightly aged it more with rub-ons.

This cute guy is called 'Golfer Max' and has been designed by our own Lexi Lee and available from Fairy Dust Crafts. I used promarkers to colour and shade the image.

We are also holding a DT Call at Lexi's if you wish to be considered please enter the challenge and put DT after your name.

Thank you so much for looking today, and for all your fabulous comments.
Love and hugs
