Dream Valley #26 Just For Men

Hi, over at Dream Valley we would like to see your creations for Men.

Tall, blonde, dark and lean
Rough and tough and strong and mean
It’s Raining Men!

Ooooops got a little carried away there, lol

Anyhow anything you like as long as it’s male themed!

My man hardly matches any of the above criteria in the rhyme, but what the heck, he is actually a perfect match for my BIL! Shhhhh, don’t tell him I said that….

DV 26 Main

The image is from our Sponsor this time, who are offering our lucky winner up to $21 to spend on the fabulous images in their store.


I have coloured ‘Jim’ in with my promarkers, and for his glasses and balloon I added Diamond Glaze to give the glass effect, which you can see better in the pic below

My papers are from the lovely First Edition pad called Isabelle. The ribbon and buttons are from my stash and the sentiment comes with one of the other Bugaboo digis.

  15. Hi Lin :)
    Great card- I love the colours and am looking at my Isabelle pad differently now (it's one of my favs as it's so pretty but maybe I need to look past pretty!!lol), great male-friendly embellishments, too!! :)
    Sorry it's taken me so long to get over here and leave my first comment btw (at least I think it's my first but my memory is frequently way off!! :S lol)- still feeling a bit ropey after Xmas and not getting to comment much yet.
    hugs, Rachel x
