Oh goody, socks again!

Good morning, the sun is shining and I am feeling energetic this morning so after posting this I'm off for a bit of Wii Fit before coming back to the craftroom for some bloghopping. Our challenge this week at Winter Wonderland has been set by Denise and she wants to see men's cards. I know some people don't like making men's cards and images for Christmas cards are not always easy to find for men but I just love this image from Pollycraft which aways makes me smile. Maurice has been coloured with Promarkers with glossy accents added to his glasses and glitter flock to his hat. The papers are Papermania, Basic Grey and First Edition (new purchase from Crafty Emmas). Ribbon is Papermania and holly was made with Sizzix die cut leaves and card candi. The metal embelies are K & Co.

I would also like to enter this into the following challenges:
Bah Humbug! Something new (First Edition paper)
Totally Papercrafts Christmas in August
CES Mix and match (Use at least 2 different manufacturer's papers)
Sparkles One for the boys
The Ribbon Girl Use ribbon

Here's a little tip when using ribbon across the page, especially for 8 x 8 cards like this one. Stick your double sided tape to the paper rather than the ribbon. It is easier to get a straight line this way.

We have 2 fabulous sponsors this week, Crafty Emma is offering £10 to spend at her store and Squiggle Stamps are giving away 2 digis of your choice so 2 reasons to enter this week.

I'll be back later with at least one more card to show you and my mega candy.
