Challenge 42 ... With Men in Mind...

oh wow last week really tested our participants out - a not so easy challenge and yet we still saw some stunning creations?   You are all just so clever!
This week has been a very special one as Max packed her bags and travelled down to the Yorkshire wing of Humbug Hall.  Oh what fun we have had!  You would not believe the laughs and fun all week.  Oh my, it's just amazing how many empty red wine bottles have accumulated in the Hall's recycling bin and the local craft stores are all under the impression that the recession is well and truly over. 
Sorry less rambling about what we've been up to at the hall and more about our new challenge which is yet again a tricky subject matter - eeeeeeeeek - yes it's those dreaded cards for the love of our lives (or bain of our lives depending on what they have been up to recently).  Yes this week we are focussing on the theme of ...
Cards for Men!
oh come on less groans and more enthusiasm please!  We need our male counterparts to carry the bags, clean the drains and empty the bag on the vacuum cleaner when it gets so full that it won't pick up anymore so the least we can do is make them a special card.  So pluck up your courage and dive into your craft supplies  to find the perfect stuff to create that perfect card for the man in your life.
Before you head off though do check out the work of Max and Ann using stamp sets in the Yorkshire wing of Humbug Hall and our fabulous Guest Designers.

The deadline for this challenge is

 *********************
You are free to create whatever you like ... it doesn't have to be a card ... in fact, show us as many different Christmas Projects as you want to share.  
Just remember ... have fun and don't forget to leave us a direct link to your project in our comment box so we can come and admire your creativity.

  4. These are all wonderful creations! I've been a bad Hum Bugger the past couple of weeks :-( First I was out of town for 5 days, now I have company in my house for 5 days AND 5 weddings to photograph! My lucky number must be 5!! I will make every effort to be back later in the week -- I need to make some masculine-type cards so this is a perfect challenge. Love you all!
