Challenge 115 - Week Two

Welcome to the second week of
 Challenge 115

Sept 11-23
Theme: For The Men In Our Life
  (make a masculine card using a  suitable sentiment)

Before I show you the fun and creative projects 
from our designers using images from Doodle Pantry... 
I have a quick introduction:  
We are absolutely delighted to welcome Mandy Sullivan, our newest designer!  She has written a brief bio to share with you.
Mandy Sullivan
Hi, my name is Mandy, I live in London and have been interested in making things for as long as I can remember – I grew up on the Isle of Wight and as a child there was always knitting, sewing or cooking on the go at home, and that brings back so many happy memories.  About 13 years ago I went to a Knit and Stitch show as I’d started cross stitching again, and I discovered rubber stamping and papercrafting and haven’t looked back since!  I love making cards and scrapbooking, and have a collection of digi stamps, dies and craft CDs as well as my beloved old faithful rubber and clear stamps!   Oh and I adore anything to do with Giant Pandas!
I make all of the cards that I send to friends and family (I don’t think I’d be forgiven if I sent a bought one!), I sell some to friends and colleagues and have even made wedding invites and all the bits and bobs that go with them for a couple of friends which is hugely rewarding (even if a bit stressful at times!), and always have a stash of cards at home as I just can’t stop creating!  My advice to anyone thinking about making cards – give it a go, dip your toe in, enjoy, and be prepared to be addicted!
Happy Crafting!
