So let’s see what the design team have made for us.

Scatty Jan  For todays make I have used a design sheet from the Work and Play 11 collection also as a download collection here - I love using the design sheets exspecially for male cards as I find them hard to do and these sheets take away a lot of the thinking - All pre coloured too so a super quick card. All that was added to this one was an extra backing paper and the word laptop which you can find in the emblie section - I also added a small picture of work and play 11 onto the computer screen

KateNow I'm one of those who struggles and doesn't like making male cards, although I better get used to it as at the moment we have more boys in my family than girls. I decided this challenge would be the perfect time for me to make my husbands Fathers day card from our 2 furbabies, and there was no better image to use than the Gamekeeper from the Work & Play 10 collection. Full details are on my blog

Yvonne - Hello there! I loved loved loved colouring 'Skater Boy' from Work & Play 11 with my polychromos pencils for a sample for a recent Create & Craft show Nikky was on a few weeks ago, so thought I would share him with you today. The papers, sentiment and embellishment are all from the same collection which you can get as a digi download collection or as a CD-Rom. Alternatively you can get the single digi here.

Tanya ...For this week’s challenge I’ve used a total of three collections Work & Play 7  for the coloured digi, Work & Play 11 for the papers and Work & Play 9 Love Collection  for the scrabble tiles.  My simple card shows how versatile the coloured digis and papers are and that you don’t have to be an expert colourist (is that even a word….ha ha ha) to make an effective and beautiful card.  I’ve made it for my dad, so, shhhh….don’t tell him.

Dawn I have used Plumber. Mechanic digi stamp from the Work & Play 11 collection, This can also be bought as a separate digi stamp here. I have coloured it with Polychromo pencils & the paperrs used are also from the same collection. These are perfect for those always hard to do male cards.

Jane – Hi everyone!  For my Father’s Day card I used the super cute HOLIDAYS DIGI STAMP which reminds me of my dad when he was younger and how he used to sit in the garden with a knotted hanky on his head! This gorgeous image is also available as part of the WORK AND PLAY 3 BUNDLE.  I also used plenty of dies to create a tranquil outdoors scene.  Have a lovely crafty day! xxx

Monica - My project for this Father Day is a "Pocket protector slide card" for the Geek Dad (everybody has at least one in the family). I used Horace, that is also included on Cherryblossom Lane collection. The papers I used are from the same collection.


Julie - I decided to make a shaped card this week using Polkadoodles Winston Digi Download, this image is called Gone Fishing and is available, in outline only, singly in the Digi Download store HERE On the CD and in the download there is also a coloured version which is what I have used here. The spotty kraft paper, buttons, Gone Fishing sign and sentiment are also from the Winston digi download/CD, I used Gathered Twigs distress ink around the edges of the paper.

Wendy - For my box card, I've gone back a few collections to Work & Play 1 and used Handyman Dave, who is also available as an individual digi here. All the embellies & the sentiment are also from the same collection, as is the wood effect paper.
Emma - For my Father/Male card I have kept it pretty simple as i know the male of the spiecies doesn't like all the fiddly bits & bobs that us women like. I have coloured up the sweet little Karate Boy stamp that can be found Here, i have used one of the papers that go with the Work & Play 7 set that you can find in download form Here or in CD form Here.
Anjie - I have used the Handyman image from the Work and Play 11 download collection. The image is available on it's own HERE. I have used Prisma pencils to colour him. All the papers, embellies and borders are all from the same collection.


Great makes from everyone I’m sure you will agree.
