Man Up! - A Little Bit Crafty Challenge

Morning everyone!

Hope you're all ok and keeping warm and dry?

Today is the start of February's challenge over at Paula Holifield's A Little Bit Crafty Challenge and this month the theme is 'Man Up!' so we want lots of 'man' themed projects.  

This month the challenge is sponsored by:

Visible Image
Set of 3 stamp sets 
Ephemera pack
Set of 2 stamps

More information can be found over on the challenge.

Visible Image Stamps very kindly provided me with the Clayton Legend Stamp Set to use for this challenge...and here is my card:

Clayton really reminds me of my Jamie and this is the perfect card for Jamie as right now he's doing an online university course run by the University of Alberta on dinosaur paleobiology...even though he's only 7.5 years old.  He's 2/3 of the way through and loving ever second.  So he's certainly aiming high!  

Both the image and the sentiments are from the Clayton Legend stamp set and I coloured the image using the following markers:

Copics:  E00, E11 and E21

Promarkers:  Pastel Blue, Denim, Midnight blue, Walnut, Cocoa, Cinnamon, Caramel, Sandstone, Satin, Crimson, Berry Red, Red,  Black, Cool Grey 5, 3 and 1. 

I created the papers myself in colours to match the image.  

The buttons were cut using a Memory Box die.  

Good luck in the challenge everyone!

Take care and happy crafting! 


  1. Morning Lexie, another gorgeous card, I do so love the image and the beautiful papers.

    Hugs to you and my little man
