Masculine Valentine

The challenge this week at Sugar Creek Hollow is to make a MASCULINE VALENTINE in a vintage, shabby chic or primitive style.

One random winner will receive a digi of our choice and a winner's badge to display. In addition, the Design Team will choose one project as Card of the Week and the creator will receive a badge and will be in the running for a Guest Designer spot.

Our Design Team has created gorgeous cards for your inspiration and if you would like the details, just click on their name to be taken directly to their blog.

I really struggled with this one because everything that popped into my head was flowery or girly and many of the vintages images I found online were geared towards women or children. After two days (yes, 2) I finally had this idea so I hope you like it. I hope my husband likes it too because it is going to be given to him.
