March....time for the men: Challenge #87

Well, here we are in March. How Autumnal is it around you? Or is it springing into Spring?

Despite being Autumn we in Hobart experienced our highest ever temperature for March and one of the highest ever including in summer with the mercury reaching 39.7 degrees on Saturday.

The gardens did remarkably well considering and I have been making tomato relish and freezing vegies as well as trying to eat as much as possible. I must say I didn't grow these as I am currently looking after a friends garden and that includes picking the produce!

Needless to say others went swimming!

WOW... a stunning capture from Jetty Beach camping ground on Bruny Island thanks to Scott Ricketts from Your Sydney Guide.

So, what is March's new Challenge?

Makes for Men and Boys 
TWIST Use a Staple or a Peg - or both

Male focused items. I always need these.

The Random Number entrant winner will get a

 $15 Gift Voucher

As usual the Design Team have some goodies to share to get the creative juices flowing:

  2. Oh, I always need masculine cards so this is a great challenge. By the way, is the twist optional or required? Thanks so much!

    1. Hi Karen - the twist is optional but if you want to be a DT Favorite, you really need to think of adding it. Cheers.

  3. Great projects by the team! I didn't follow the twist, but I had fun making my masculine cards. Thank you for the great challenge.

  7. Thanks for the great challenge and wonderful inspiration! I haven't played here in a while but this one caught my eye! I am in need of masculine cards so I appreciate the nudge! I just linked up my first card and used two staples - and no stamping, which is always a challenge for me. Hope to be back again with more masculine cards!
