Challenge #137 - Landscapes

Are you ready for a new challenge here at The Male Room? Well let's take a look and see what we've got for you this time.


Yes, we'd like to see a landscape on your masculine project. 
Now this can be a card, which seems to be the most popular choice, but we also love to see other paper projects like scrapbook pages, 3D models, tags, art journals or even a canvas.

We've the amazingly talented Cornelia joining us as our Guest Designer for this challenge and her card is a real beauty and in my personal favourite CAS style too.

Guest Designer Cornelia

#19 Sam Squires


That sentiment quote is so awesome and so is the whole card design!

#20 Conil


That's the way to get the sentiment in focus - it covers the whole card! 

#28 Deepti


Again the sentiment covers the whole card, but in a totally different way. Awesome!


And now for some exciting news!

I'd like to introduce you to two new DT members - Goga and Helen. They have kindly stepped up to swell our numbers and give you even more awesome inspiration. 


Hi, I'm Goga and I come from a small town in the middle of Slovenija.
I am a wife, mother of three children and a grandmother of a sweet boy.
I am employed at the largest Slovenian hospital and in my free time I enjoy creating paper products.
I started evolving my creativity at a young age with knitting, crocheting and making Idria lace.
Later, I picked up the craft with paper, where I found my new passion.


I've been making cards for many years and love stamps, digi stamps, patterned papers and my Promarkers.  I work full time in a care home run by a charity called Abbeyfield who provide support for older people.  I'm the Activities Coordinator so you can usually find me singing, calling bingo, crafting or playing various games to keep my ladies and gentlemen entertained.

I know you'll give them the warmest welcome. They'll be sharing cards from our next challenge that begins on 27th May. In the meantime you can always go take a peek at their blogs by clicking on their names above their photos.


Just before I go here's a reminder about our current challenge #136 In The Garden. 
You've got until 26th May to join in and play along - plenty of time then!




Peace & Hugs,
The Male Room Team
