Hi everyone, welcome back for another theme, and thank you for all your gorgeous animal entries last week!

Next weeks challenge will finish as normal after one week, and the winner will be announced when we return on 21st September.

And now on to the main business of the day - the challenge this week is to:

We all have lots of nestibilites, corner rounders, paper punches, fancy edge cutters etc etc -

I am delighted to welcome a new sponsor this week - Crimson Cloud.

Hello to all, Peggy here and hosting this week's CRAFTY CREATIONS CHALLENGE #132. I just love bright colors and just now noticed that out of my 3 challenges hosted here, they are all color related and the next one is also one. So I now solemnly vow to find some other kind of challenge for the next one I host. That said, I know you will have fun with these since summer is a season of bright, vivid colors right.

This week we have 2Cute Rubber Stamps as our Sponsor. It is always fun to play with Heidi's cute images. I know the DT had a ball with them, just have a peek at all the beautiful creations they added. Some of us used the new Baby girl bunny. They can't come any cuter!
"2 Cute Rubber Stamps are cute and whimsical rubber and digital stamps that can be used for cards, scrapbooks and much more. Heidi is the owner/designer/illustrator and loves seeing her cute illustrations turned into rubber stamps. The BEST thing about 2 Cute Rubber Stamps is that “YOU” can get involved in the creative process by voting on her sketches and submitting ideas of your own".

Want to play, all you do is enter a card with the Color combo suggested and that's it! You could win some fun prizes. We will be watching out for your entries.

Peggy (that's me)

Challenge #131 Male Birthday - Sketch

Hello everyone, hope you are all having a great week so far.  Well this is Donna aka Nana Donna and my challenge for you this week is to make a Male Birthday card following the sketch provided.   I chose this theme because yesterday was my birthday and it is always nice to have a male birthday card around.  Sometimes they can be a challenge to make.

Our sponsor this week is

I love her images especially if you have trouble shading, she has some shading already on the image.  She has offered the winner this week 
4 digital images of their choice

So here is the sketch that you need to follow, I thought it looked like fun and could easily be made into a male card.  It is a Tami Mayberry sketch.
Teri at Delicious Doodles has provided the design team with some awesome images to use, here are their wonderful sample cards.



Now aren't those some fabulous creations, please stop by their blogs and see their other creations and leave them some love.
OK, come on now get those juices flowing and let's see your male birthday cards.
Thanks for playing along.
