Just for Fun with Jim & Allsorts Challenge

It's not often I manage a card for just for fun but when I saw these new 'Jim' releases over at the Digi Stamp Boutique I was just itching to play with them...Sally-Ann has created two new sets...there's Jim Collection 3...which is called 'Work Rest & Play' and Jim Collection 4 is 'Outdoor Pursuits'...if you haven't tried these fun characters on your cards then you seriously don't know what you are missing...they are perfect for those ever so difficult male cards that we always seem to struggle with and they are a doddle to colour in can see all the new images here in the Digi Stamp Boutique or you can click on the images below! I'm actually entering this card for this weeks Allsorts Challenge which is JUST FOR MEN and coincidentally the Digi Stamp boutique are sponsoring this challenge's a DSB kinda day lol!

Hi Donna, I don't seem to get time to do card's just for fun myself these days...To be honest, I think I do a better job on those, no pressure...if you know what I mean.

This is just fab, you really are great at matching papers and doing Man cards... something I just can't do...I steer well clear of the Men ones...

Fab card Donna, great colouring too, thanks for all your support lately...your a gem!!!

Morning Donna! Love love love your card! How great is that for a "man" card! Everything always goes so well together on your cards, and the font you use for you sentiments is so cool! Great job! Well, I promised myself that'd I'd not spend all my free time today on the net so off to do a little crafting while I have the chance!

Hi Donna

Great card - I love it.

I too think these new digi stamps are ideal for the awkward men cards .. .. I mean what man wouldn't be happy lying around in a hammock all day?!?!!

I love the colours, paper choices and layout of your card very much.

Thank you for playing along with Allsorts this week.

Love Jules xx
