Hello... good morning! I hope you are all doing ok... it's time for a brand new challenge over at

This week it's the turn of Team A... and the lovely Carole is our hostess.... she has chosen the fab theme of

'One for the Guys'

So we would like to see projects for men or boys!! it doesn't have to be a card... as long as you create something with a male theme...

Awww... isn't he adorable!!  I decided to make him a ginger-headed boy with freckles....

Image: 'Flutterby' - Mo Manning
Papers: Shery K Design - 'Himalayan Blue'
Butterfly: Prima Flutterbits - MCH
Sentiment: Polka Doodles Father's Day Kit (freebie couple of years ago)
Dew Drops, Buttons, Twine, Gems - Unused stash that I"ve had for oh so long!!

I've coloured this cute little fella with Copics and used a cloud template to create the sky background.... hopefully it looks like a lovely Spring Day... we can dream!.... LOL

We are sponsored this week by the fabulous Jo Channon at Let's Create
