The Squirrel and the Fox Challenge 25 - one for the men

Eta: obviously I didn't schedule this properly! Sorry for the delay! x

Hi, guys! I'm scheduling this post as we're all off to a family 'Do' on Sunday. I hope it works!

The Challenge at The Squirrel and the Fox is 'One For the Men' and we are sponsored by the wonderful Bugaboo

I used one of their wonderful images of Gus, I love this old gent!


isn't he great? I used Speccies to colour him, and stickled the water quite lavishly. I distressed with Salty Ocean DI. The digi papers are 'The Boys Zone' by Bearly Mine I used Papermania Kraft to mat. The star is an X-cut die, I stamped a LotV sentiment on it and edged it with stickles. The shiny stars are Papermania and the twine was a magazine freebie.

The sketch is from Here Come the Boys which is dedicated to cards for the men in our life! I'm entering their Challenge, isn't it a great sketch?

Do paddle over to the Challenge Blog and have a look at my teamies' fab contributions, you'll be inspired! I know male cards can be tough, but give it a go, chaps, you can do it!!

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x
