Challenge 43... Die Cuts...

What a wonderful mixed bag of fabulous entries to our Male Challenge last week.   We saw cards of every description for every kinda' guy imaginable.   For the young and the not quite so young ... some that were cute ... some that were elegant ... some that were funny ... some that were *snigger* a little bit saucy ... traditional images ... modern styles ... in fact you included everything we could possibly wish for ... and much much more!  Thank you all so much for rising to, what we thought would be, a difficult challenge.  How wrong we were! We obviously need to rethink our strategy if we're ever going to catch you lot out!
This week will probably be a walk in the park for most of you as we'd like you to dig out your 
Die Cuts
You'll see some gorgeous Die-Cuts on display from the Humbuggers and our awesome October Guest Designers, so scroll down just a teeny weeny smidge and prepare to be amazed.  It is with a sad and heavy heart that we must bid farewell to these 2 oh so talented ladies and our humble Humbugger  "Thank You" somehow doesn't seem quite enough in return for all the amazing projects they have shared.   Their DT submissions over the last few weeks have been amazing and we secretly hope that when we go to prepare the rooms for our November Guest Designers, we'll be lucky enough to find a little parcel of their creativity, tucked away in the corner just waiting for us Humbuggers to steal ... errrm ... borrow.  
If you'd like to know more details about this week's DT projects, or if you just want to leave some love for Ann,  Max, Kendra-Sue and Brenda, then click on the links to visit our personal blogs.  Your messages are always appreciated and we do our very best to reply to everyone. 
Max - Max's Craft Creations
Brenda - Butlers Abroad
Kendra-Sue - KSD Creations  

********************
The deadline for this challenge is 
12 noon (UK time)
Thursday 3rd November 2011
 *********************
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.
