Ok, now the business stuff is out of the way let's get onto the challenge and see all the inspiration! 

Debbi - Emma Canning's new digi's have certainly made the job of making a card for the male of the species a little easier. I have coloured the Music Time digi stamp and placed it in the centre of a stepper card, which I decorated using the Boys Hoot download collection.
Zoe - Usually Male/boy's cards are challenging, but the new Emma Canning's Digi images make it so easy. I used this fab Web Surfing image, I used papers & embellishments including Washi tape from my stash. I also used a piece of Denim material which is from the fabulous Doobadoo range.
Scatty Jan Ohhhh I so loved playing this week making my challenge project - I used the fantastic Work and Play collection 1 and coloured two of the characters with Graph'it markers - The tool box paper is also from the lovely collection  and cut out on my portrait.
Yvonne - I really enjoyed making this weeks card, I used one of Emma Canning's new digi's Music Time, which you can get here.  My other half constantly has a headphone in one or both of his ears so this image suits him perfectly! I coloured the image with my Graph'It Markers which you can get here.  For the backing papers I got these from the new Work and Play Collection 1. Layered onto nice navy cardstock, with some embellishments from my stash.
Susan For this weeks challenge I have used the new super cute Work and Play Collection 1 ,papers and image and coloured with Amazing my Graph'it Markers,and as usual I have used my Cameo to cut out the Dumbbells and the sentiment.
Anjie - On my card this week the image I have used is  Fireman Jim from the Work & Play collection which is available as an instant download. He can also be found on the new Work & Play Collection 1 CD, which is where I got my backing papers and the sentiment from. I cut the ladder and buckets out on my Came and coloured the ladder with a Silver - Metallic Pan Pastel and the bucket with the Mimosa Graph'It Marker.
The colours of Graph'It Makers I have used for the image are
9103, 9104, 9105, 9106
1140, 1150, 1180
Sally - Hello, todays challenge is "One for the Boys" - so I chose one of Emma Canning's images and coloured him with my Graph'it markers.  I then distressed the edges softy with Pan Pastels and adhered him to a Spellbinders die.  I chose a kraft cardstock card, which I am into in a big way at the moment, matted a piece of stripey paper which I had in my crafty stash onto the card blank. Cut a ribbon, added a stack of books, which is from the Pretty Tuff CD Rom and a sentiment. A quick and easy card for the Boys!

Jo- I had to use Emma Cannings Gamer Boy digi this week as it reminds me of my little brother- never off the xbox/laptop/anything with a screen. I coloured him in quite bold colours for me using a mix of copics and Promarkers and really wanted the image to stand out so tried to keep the rest of the card clean and simple, using some fab papers as a pop of colour.
Don't forget you have until 1st April at noon to enter and we will see you back here next Tuesday for a new challenge. Don't forget you also have time to enter the current Polkadoodles challenge in the sidebar too!
