Stamping~Not just for Women, anymore!

It's time to make a card...you've prepared your working area:

paper, ink pads, Copics, but you're hung up on the image,

or the lack of the Perfect one.

Sometimes the adorable furry critter or

the sweet as pie little girl are

just not right for the MAN in your life!

Half the population is MEN~

and they need cards too!


is THE place to get them!

What do they say..."It takes one to know one"!?

Well here you go...your first glimpse of the MAN behind the marker.


proudly presents MANmade Stamps!
Images for men, designed by a MAN

available NOW at The Pixie Cottage Digital Collection.

This week The Pixie Cottage is hosting their

22nd Challenge featuring this sketch...

designed by Donalda from
Enjoying the Journey ,
and/or the theme: Father's Day.

Be sure to link back your NEW projects to The Pixie Cottage Challenge #22

after you've posted them on your blog

for a chance to win!

Good Luck!!!

What perfect timing for the debut of MANmade Stamps!

First up to make a big splash is the Fisherman by CreaSeans

coupled with the sketch here is my CreaSean , (oops) I mean "creation"!


This card is trying it's luck in these challenges...
The Shabby Tea Room - Just For Dad
Cards For Men - Fathers Day
Double Dutch - Fathers Day
Simple Doodles - Just for You Dad
One Stitch at a Time - Boys to Men
Creative Craft Challenges - For The Man in Your Life

Another saying comes to mind...
"The way to a Man's heart is through his stomach."
I think there's a theme going on...

When I spied the word 'BUCK' on these candy bars
it was like a rifle shot went off~ ding ding ding/ or BOOM...
they would be perfect to use with the image Big Buck by CreaSeans !

Can't you just see the bonding buds
hanging out by the campfire
passing around the craft supplies
in order to make these for group snack!?

Although if you want the truth from
my 8 year old Sweet Tooth Sierra..."they're not very tasty"

I guess you get what you pay for.
Go with a brand of chocolate you know!

Thus far I've worked under the premise of "Eat dessert first"...
Now it's time for real food...
or at least it would have been if the Grillman by CreaSeans hadn't burnt it !

No matter how high the flame,
remember to tell your MAN
" U. R. so HOT"

Husband Dear,

did you hear me!?

(that's right~ he's Mr. ARtish) :)

CONGRATS on your NEW line of MANmade Stamps for The Pixie Cottage !!!
It was SO much fun to create with them...
ah, what TEAM work!
