As You like It Challenge # 68 Your Favourite for Male or Female and WHY

Hi Crafters,

For the challenge at As You Like It this week we are asking you to tell us which types of projects are your favourite to make, Male or Female ones.
Well this is a no-brainer for me, I find male cards so difficult to create that my favourite has to be female ones every time.
I think it is because I find it difficult to know what embellishments to use on male cards whereas female cards are so easy to decorate as there is an abundance of ribbons, flowers, gems and trimmings for these girly cards.

Our sponsor this week is Crafty Sentiments and I have used one of their images called 'Amy - Just Relax'

Image - Amy - Just Relax by Crafty Sentiments
Medium - Pro/flexmarkers
Papers - Dessert Blooms Paper Pad by First Edition
Dies - CR1248 & CR1250
Sentiment - LOTV Art Pad Circle Sentiment
Organza Ribbon

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Crafty Friends - #19 One for the Girls
Allsorts Challenge - #339 Colours of Autumn
Papertake Weekly - ATG
Creative Inspirations - #338 ATG / Sketch

Come and join in the fun this week and tell us whether you prefer male or female projects to qualify for the prize.

Well that's it from me today, off to have another play in my room. I still have some Christmas cards left to make but all my shopping is done though.

Funny how we find male cards hard to do, think it has something to do with the blings n things we love to add to our girly cards. This is proof of how lovely you make the girl cards, love the image and dies.xx
