Now for this week's challenge. We'd like you to make a card For the Men in Your Life. This could be a Christmas card or, if you're fed up of seasonal makes, it could be a Birthday, Anniversary or a 'just because' card. 

We've got another tremendous prize for our random winner this week. Gerda and her team from Stamp Fairy are offering a $10 Gift Certificate to their store! 
Gerda says "If you are searching for cute, whimsy digistamps - you have come to the right place! Everything you can find has been hand - and mousemade with love and lots of creativity. 
She has also very kindly supplied some digis for us to showcase this week. And, we are joined by two amazing Stamp Fairy Designers this week - thank for sharing your creativity with us!

As it's the first week of the month, I'm delighted to introduce our November Guest Designer - please share some Incy Wincy love for Sandy

Here is a little about her:

I am married with 5 grown up children, 3 grandchildren and another on it’s way! I teach cards at a Community Craft Group and also run a small group that meets each week.  I enjoy singing and am involved in a church choir as well as a choir of about 80 people. We perform about 4 times a year mainly doing Oratorio works, such as Beethoven etc.  I am a DT member on Make It Monday, 613 Avenue Create and the Perfect Sentiment. I have also been on another couple of DTs previously as well as had a few GD spots. I have been cardmaking for about 14 –15 years now and blogging for just over two years. I enjoy looking at  other blogs and seeing all the wonderful creations people make.

 And here is Sandy's gorgeous card:

We also have a Special Guest Designer this week - our former teamie, Annette. Now she's gone ALL out and used ALL THREE!!! What a girl! What a gorgeous card!!! Fibres are the stamping linen onto which my image is stamped, Ribbon is a strip of my favourite 15mm wide satin in a gorgeous rich red and Twine is a bit of red twine tied in a triple bow and holding on my baby silver bell.

Now for the inspiration from the IWDT girls, featuring some images from Sassy Studio Designs:

and, finally, me Helen

We can't wait to come round and see your lovely projects!
