The Stampman Challenge - One for the Men

Well I finally settled down to a little crafting after a week full of hospital visits and other trauma so it was time for me to spend an hour or two doing something I like.

The Stampman supplied just the right theme cos I fancied playing with a tag (although strictly speaking the theme calls for a card but every Christmas I buy my brother a lovely, classy tie favorite shop.............Poundland!  It started as a joke a few years ago when my bro asked me to get him a really nice tie and I saw these nice ties in poundland and wrapped it up for him. He was so polite until he unwrapped the real pressy which contained an explanation then he threw the poundland tie at me!!  I've bought him a poundland tie ever since.

This tag then will go on his Christmas pressy which this year I intend to wrap in brown paper

I have enjoyed playing with this stamp set both for this challenge and the ATC Travel swap on the ATC swap blog  but when I saw my teamy Debbies design using the same stamps I was blown away! You've just got to pop over there and have a look, all the designs are awesome!

I'm off now to go play some more

What a brilliant idea Michelle. I love the quirkiness of it The ribbon 'tie' is great and I'm sure it will go down really well with your brother.

I'm so glad you posted today as I was almost on the verge of emailing you to check you were okay. Sounds as though you've had a bit of a 'heavy' time. Hope things get better next week.

Hi Michelle - I have just popped by to say hello. I have loved having a nose round your blog and seeing all your gorgeous creations. I particularly stopped to have a look at the wonderful wedding photos of Liam and Fizz and to see all the hard work you put in to make it such a special day. You must be very proud.
I am looking forward to working with you as I am the new member of the Stamp Man team.
Luv Brenda xxx
