Just Add Ink #28

Hi Guys,
What a fantastic challenge from the JAI team this week. Its a combo challenge...... A Man Card with some Man colours

What a great Challenge with Fathers Day around the corner as well as my Man's Bithrday next month, The hardest thing with making a man card is not to make it look girly, so no bling, no butterflies and no glitter . This challenge also goes well with our current Renovation at our house .....the Man Shed.
I made my card to thank my brother who has been around every weekend to help my hubby put up our garage. If you want to have a little fun please CLICK HERE for the details

Till next week

Hi Guys,
Wow can you beleive that it is half way through the year already.I'm sick of cold winter, bring on the summer sun.
Well i thought that i might use this weeks challenge to warm up a bit with some colour. I wanted to step outside the square a bit so this week i made a promise not to use any butterflies.
(but it wouldn't be me without a little bling)
