Boys and Their Toys

Hi Folks
Hope you all had a good weekend and for those of us in the UK a lovely extended bank holiday.  But all good things come to an end and it's back to work today. Still, only a couple of weeks and I will be on my holidays so not all bad.

As it's the first Wednesday of the month it's time for a new challenge to start over at Dude Time Doodles.
Just upload a creation with a manly feel for your chance to win 3 free images from the Dude Time Doodles store.
Our theme for this challenge is

I used this fab image called Lief Blower.  It might be just a leaf blower and a rake he is carrying but he certainly looks like he is going into battle against those pesky leaves lol.
I kept the card quite simple in it's layout just matting and layering various papers that were in my scraps box.  I did die cut some leaves and put these on each corner of the image along with some card candy.

The dude and dudettes have been busy creating some awesome projects for this challenge so why not pop over to Dude Time Doodles and take a look.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
One Stitch At A Time - Use a digi
Love to Create - Fathers Day
Cards for Men - Fathers Day
Kaboodle Doodles - All manly male
Papertake - Anything goes/Fathers Day
Creative Inspirations - Card for a male
Digital Tuesday - Anything goes
Sweet Stamps - For Dad
Fab N Funky - Go Green

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing your entries for the challenge.  
Take care.
