Oh Boy!!!!!

We're all enjoying a bit of blog-hopping to see all your Creased Creations for Jane's "In the Fold" dare and there's still loads of time to join in if you've not posted yours yet, or maybe you're dithering on the edge, unsure whether to join in or not - don't be scared, come on in, it's fun!

So, who's name came out of the hat for our very first DCM lucky draw, then? Well hang on just a minute while we set our Little Extra mini-challenge.

MEN!
Let's face it, we all have to make them a card sometimes even though most of us find them tricky. We've been kind and not asked you to do a "male" card since Debbie's "ribbon for men" dare, but for this week's Little Extra that's what we'd like you to make - a card with a male in mind. Be it Baby boy, Little boy, Teenage Boy or BIG "boy" - just make him a card and let's see what you've done by leaving a message on this post.
As usual some of the Design Team have made some cards to help get you thinking:






OK?



off you go then!



Oh yes, we knew there was something else.....

And the winner is ....drum roll, please....

I dared again.
The cards are some I designed some time ago but I love making them and every time I get an order for a mans card I just pray he likes fishing........cos if not I get a bit stumped.
