Hello my name is Julie-Ann mum of 4 and nanny to Charlie.I will be 49 in a few weeks, not quite sure how that happened ! Lucky to be married to my best friend Bob.  I have been crafting since my great aunty taught me to knit when i was 5 years old, since then i have tried all types of crafting and found paper crafting about 10 years ago. I am honored to be invited to join Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge as a guest designer, as i am one of the weird folk who love making cards for the men in my life. Crafty hugs Julie Ann

Our challenge this week has been chosen by Jan,  which is
(Do It Yourself)
How many of our guys class themselves as being expert DIY workers? I'm sure there is at least one member of family or friendship who would be suited for this type of card. So let us see the card you can create.

Let us start with our Guest Designer Julia Ann, followed by Jan and the remainder of the team.
