SDC249: Man Up

Hello again and welcome back to the blog today. We had a wonderful time last week with Nellie's All Creatures challenge and we have a great new challenge for you this week.
With Father's Day coming up this weekend this is the perfect challenge...

Carol Fox is our hostess and she is challenging us to a manly challenge. "Man Up" is her challenge theme and here is what Carol says about this one:
"Journal page, card or mixed media, all is ok as long as it has a male image on it"

So let's see your best "Man Up" projects this week.

Arwen McCullen is our wonderful spotlight designer this month so let's find out a little more about her. Here is some more Q&A from Arwen:

1. How long have you been crafting/stamping?
I have been creative my whole life.
I started stamping in 2004 as a craft friend gave me a stamp. The stamp addiction came very quickly and spreads still raging out.
I'd sell my grandmother for a great stamp (just kidding) ;)

2. What got you started in crafting/stamping?
I started with cute designs of Penny Black, Magnolia etc.
In my modeling environment there was hardly anyone who liked it gloomy.
Then, when I got my first Stampotique stamp, I could live out my dark side really.

3. Do you craft with music or do you prefer quiet?
Differently. I often listen to music and sometimes I play a movie in the background
