Tiddly Inks challenge 111- Masculine...gulp!!!!

Image- Going Swimming  from Tiddly Inks.

It's Tiddly Tuesday and time for a new challenge over on the Tiddly Inks challenge blog!  and today's challenge is a great one for this time of year....
Men,Men,Men, Manly men!!
 so all you need to do is dig out your fav manly Tiddly Inks and create a masculine card or project.  Father's Day is just around the corner and we'd love to see you create something for the guy in your life.  It can be a little boy card, a teen card, or a Father's day card.  It really doesn't matter just as long as it's for the male gender!

Make sure to link up a new creation using a Tiddly Inks image before 12am Tuesday, June 11th.

I went for a kinda cute Fathers Day kinda make as manly cards are something that make me sweat as soon as the words 'man card' are said!! but to be completely honest the image and papers on this one made it an absolute dream to put together.

A little splodge of colour from my promarkers and some easy square nestying and this card was all done. ( I must add it lasted only 2 hours sat in my little sale pile before it was snapped up and gone!!!! but he was sooo cweet to look at for a while!!!lol!)

Its been a while since I entered a challenge so this little guy is off to play with the cupcakes over on the cupcakes challenge blog for their boys theme this week.

ok, time for a Lou to pootle off!! its half term and Mo and I are going to watch Arthur and the invisables because its raining....urgh....and then we are picking my mum up at 9am as Mum and I are starting weight watchers today.

This year has been a year of change for us both and we decided we are going to start doing some positive things. Now Mum is walking some without her stick and can call that excersise we are taking the bull by the horns to fight some blubber!! I started using my online tools on Friday and have lost 3lb already by following a few of the recipes so I am hoping it will continue!!

Have an awesome day peeps!!
