This is another 100% digitally produced project. Cards for Men allows me the opportunity to keep in-touch with my digital crafting. While i enjoy getting my hands all filled with paint and inks the clean environment of the Digital World is a place i have felt safe and secure now for several decades.

Even now i am still learning more and more and how i can sharpen up my digital skills, its a never ending journey of discovery and improvement. Just like the 'Hands On' projects they can run side side by side and its something i'm going to be looking into and exploring more and more over the forth coming months and years.

Start Date: 18 March
Finish Date: 31 March
Theme: Easter
Sponsor: Bugaboo Digi Stamps
Prize: 7 free digis

Everything you wanted to know but were afraid to ask about Bugaboo Stamps: A Short Essay... 

As if raising five children in the frozen lands of the Northern parts of Canada was not a big enough challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her toes and skills into the wonderful world of paper-Crafting by opening an On-line Store filled with her wonderful illustrations. That was TWO Years ago!

Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the LEADING Companies in Digital Imagery, and they are still growing day by day.

Their images range from the Seriously Snarky to the Sugary Sweet.... The Sublimely Soulful all the way over to the other side of the super Sexy Spectrum. Your bound to find all that you want and more to create your projects. But be warned your visit can last a long time as you look through the wonderful illustrations and your mind will be changed as to what you want time and time again!

Jodie works very hard to provide NEW Releases and FREEBIES every week so book mark and visit Bugaboo every week to discover what's been added to the library of imagery.

If your tastes run to Rubber [and YOU know who you are!]' you can find Bugaboo Rubber Stamps @ Totally Stampalicious.

Finally, join the Bugaboo Stamp D.T. for weekly Challenges @ Catch The Bug.

Now then this months challenge. After being asked to select what image i would like to work with, i came to select this image. The choice of image changes just as quickly as the weather here in the U.K can as there is a vast selection of imagery that can be fitted into every project theme you would want to make. So i decided on something that was not out right Easter in theme. At first glance you wouldn't say 'Oh that's an Easter Card!' however by picking the colour scheme and the addition of a backing paper that had Easter Chicks as the main theme i was able to bring everything together.

Please visit all of the Design Team for Cards For Men as they work hard to give you ideas and inspiration for your projects.

PLEASE remember that a card project can ONLY be submitted in 10 Various Challenges. 

If you do subscribe your craft projects to more challenges than this amount then we will have to exclude you from this particular months challenge. We are doing this so that we can give crafters who do submit projects under this Number a chance to win prizes from our very kind sponsors. We hope you will continue to join in with the challenge and support Cards For Men.
