Something For A Man

Hi everyone, it's Julia here and my turn to choose this fortnightly theme,  I'm sure Maria will have her work cut out choosing a top 3 for the last challenge of Make Your Own Embellishments, there were some stunning entries.

My title this time is SOMETHING FOR A MAN, (nothing rude please lol).  I struggle whenever the words men and craft are put together, so this will be a challenge and a half for me!!!!!  You can make anything you like, gifts, cards home decor as long as it would be suitable for a man.

Our very generous sponsor is FlonzCraft from New Zealand (and EBay), who produce some wonderful
stamps, they really are well worth a look, and range from cute to vintage, something for everyone.

As always there will be a randomly drawn prize for one lucky winner, and a top 3 chosen by me.

Here is some inspiration from our DT.

Flonz's stamps

Don't forget, you can also show us your creations on Facebook, as well as using the linky tool below:

I'm really looking forward to seeing all your wonderful creations.

Our Rules

We are refreshing things just a little and have some updates/revisions to the rules. Please read these and be sure your entry qualifies.

2 Token elements are insufficient if our challenge is for example "Wings" that tiny little flying thing in the bottom left background is not qualifying element.

3 Entries that are really promoting products and or other challenges are no longer allowed.

With these 3 rules we are looking to see that your entry is really a response to the challenge. We work hard on our team inspiration pieces, we have a system in place to make sure we will comment on all the entries we can and this team often comment on more than the those required by our system. All we ask is that you join in with the spirit of our challenge. Inherent is this is the requirement that your project be new and not a back line to an older project.

We are not going to spend a lot of time policing this, entries that do not qualify will simply be ignored by the team.

5 You may not enter this challenge more than 3 times per theme.

6 Winner and Top 3 will be selected by team vote

7 While we try to comment on all entries some of us have a problem with WordPress and have found that we cannot always successfully comment on these.

7a We are also cautious about having to fill in a questionnaire before we can comment. We might not take the time if we have a lot to get through.

7b please turn off word verification

8 Our decision is final in all considerations of compliance with these rules.

9 Prizes are offer depending on availability, we are dependant on our very generous sponsors and from time to time we will provided the prize ourselves.
