I Got the Blues Blog Hop + Cards for Men at the Crafter's Cafe

The Crafter's Cafe Challenge theme is Male Cards, and we're calling this our January Blues Challenge.  It's been 3 weeks since Santa was here, 2 weeks since we welcomed the New Year - all the hype and excitement has gone, are you feeling a bit down? So along with our normal challenge prizes, we will be 4 blog hop prizes as well to help spread a little cheer! Be sure to leave a comment on all the Design Team members blogs and mention "January Blues" to be eligible. And of course, link up your great Male Cards!

Welcome to my stop on this fun Blog Hop! Here are two cards featuring products from Angie's Cards & Digis to chase away a few winter blues.


Hot Cocoa Gift Card

I used this fun sentiment by one of our generous sponsors, Angie's Cards & Digis. The card base was adapted from an SVG file I grabbed online years ago. It's an actual card, I just used the template to create a pocket on the front, for a packet of hot cocoa.


Teddy Pop-up Card

For my second card, I used this cute image by one of our generous sponsors, Angie's Cards & Digis to make a 3-fold card based on this video tutorial by Frenchiestamps. The sentiment is by TLC Creations.

Thank you for visiting & hope you'll join us at The Crafter's Cafe! Be sure to leave me a comment & mention "January Blues" to qualify for the great Blog Hop prizes. Your next stop is the fabulous Fiona.
