Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #213 - For a Man/Boy

Hello dear visitors and welcome to my blog.  
So happy you stopped by and hope you are having a fabulous day!!

It's time again for a new Challenge at Crafty CardmakersMaike is our host and the Theme is For a Man/Boy so, as usual, anything you care to make is fine, as long as it follows the Theme!

This Challenge certainly came at the right time for me.  I was procrastinating (again!! LOL!!) about having to make some man cards for friends and rellies that have Birthdays in the middle of the year and, when I saw this Challenge Theme, it was just the thing to get me motivated.

I am still trying to use up papers from my stash so these are older ones from Kaisercraft.
 While hunting for papers I came across the plaster tape and the burlap ribbon so decided to add some on here.
 For something different, I added a small pieces of ribbon to the sides and attached them with a couple of brads.

 The sentiment is from a cut-apart page I found in one of my paper pads.
 The chipboard is by Little Birdie.  I cut it into two pieces so it could be layered and heat embossed it.

Voila!!  Done and dusted!!

Do pop on over to CCM and take a look at the fabulous creations by the rest of the Team.  You will love it and I'm sure you will be inspired to join in.
