Tilda + Co Men's Challenge
The challenge at Tilda + Co this week is to make a card or gift for a man. I made this last week as a gift for a neighbour and couldn't believe it when I saw Katharina had made 1 for her DT project - great minds think alike!! Anyway I am still going to enter it for this week's challenge. I have stamped and coloured Edwin's grandfather and used it on a hanging treat pouch with K + Co papers.
A couple of people have seen it and asked me to make some Xmas ones, so looks like I'll be making a lot more!

Katharina said...

I love it Andrea and it doesn't matter that we did the same thing, because it looks totally different. It is always a question of interpretation :)
This grandfather Edwin is adorable, haven't seen himanywhere else yet.

love it Andrea! Not surprised you used the same idea as it is fab. Great to see how different it can look too. Love your Grandpa Magnolia, don't think I've seen it used before, so definitely unique there :)

Susan said...

Lol! This is so cute! Have never seen this stamp before (but then, I see ALL the Tilda stamps on your blog, having never found a supplier near me so that's not really surprising, is it!)

It's a great gift idea too.

This looks great Andrea and very different from Katharina's. That stamp is adorable.

Daughter has finally come out with a stinking cold, I think the high temp before hand was the start of it. Thanks for asking. :-)
