Challenge # 82 Orange and Brown

Hi, Welcome to our challenge blog which aims to help you create cards
 for the GUYZ, of all ages in your life. 
We help you to see that making such cards is not difficult. 
Our thanks to the many of you who entered our last challenge
'Something beginning with the letter T.'
We were delighted, amused and entertained with all of your 
wonderful entries. There were some which were so tenuous to the letter T 
I should have thought of a prize for the most 'way out' . 
However Jane has had the most difficult task of choosing the Top 3.

The Top 3 Winners 
in numerical order

#3 Liz Cavill
such a clean and simple design and yet so much in it that relates to
 our challenge - and perfectly masculine. 

# 18 Samantha
 Lots of interest, lots of texture, beautifully coloured and constructed 
and I loved the T/Tee play on words. 

# 26 2amscrapper
I actually loved this card so much that I dreamed about it. 
It's so elegant and well thought out. I have several male friends who
 work in the theatre and I know a card like this would be perfect for them. 

Congratulations ladies, please take a copy of the Top 3 badge from our header bar. 

Please say hello to our Guest Designers for August


Hey fellow challenge enthusiasts!  I'm Julia Aston and I live just north of Boston, MA in the USA.  My mother was an elementary school teacher and my father was a commercial artist so between the two, my sister and I did lots of artsy crafty things starting at a very young age - and it continues into adulthood.  I discovered card stamping about 9 years ago and it has become my passion - I love stamping on cards and other objects like boxes, bags and tags!  I am just thrilled to be one of the Guest DT's for Cardz 4 Guyz for the month of August and look foward to seeing your inspiring creations linked up here each week!  You'll find me on my blog at http://www.createwithjulia.blogspot.com


Hello, my name is Mervi and I'm from Southern Finland.  I've tried all kinds of arts and crafts and colours - think all my life, but card making just took my heart and time few years ago.   I do everything from cute to shabby vintage  and I still want to try and learn new things!  ​

We met Amy last week ,  now please welcome Sharon 
who has also joined our Design Team. 

Hi, my name is Sharon.  By day I am a forensic chemist and by night I'm an avid crafter. I am Mum to my two boys who are 17 and 12, so life is always hectic and a juggling act, but I wouldn't have it any other way. We live in a small town on the Essex coast in the UK.  I also run my own cardmaking and scrapbooking classes in my area, as well as being a Stampin' Up demo.  I love all types of cardmaking and I think my style goes in phases, so hopefully I can inspire you. I'm very excited to be joining the DT for Cardz 4 Guyz!!!
