Tiddly Inks Challenge # 51 Manly Men

The challenge for this week over at Tiddly Inks is - Manly Men! With Father's Day coming up next month TI were inspired to have this challenge to celebrate the men in our lives. It can be a Father, Brother, Husband, Uncle, Grandfather, Cousin, Friend, Neighbor, Teacher...any man who is special to you and yours!!

 Here I used a new release Grog the caveman. I flipped him over in Photoshop so that he was facing the way I wanted :) See thats what I love about digi images :)  The button twine is from the Ribbon Girl and beads from the collection thrown in my drawer .

There are SO many fabulous images in the shop in the Inky Boys section that are just perfect for that special someone! And there are some new and adorable images and fabulous papers in the What's New section as well

Just upload your creation using the Inlinkz tool  on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog by next Monday. As always, please use only a Tiddly Inks image or a Stamping Bella rubber stamp. =)

First of all can I say a big thank you to all of your lovely warm welcomes you gave me last week. It warmed my heart to read such lovely comments.

Now onto this weeks challenge.....I do love a good read, but always seem to put it on the bottom of the to do list. Any way the Cupcake Craft Challenge this week is to us an image with a book in it, someone reading a book or a bookmark. I made this bookmark using one of Tiddly Inks images which I think will brighten up any book......... whether you are reading it or not :)
