I Spy With My Little Eye.... Something for Boys or Men (Challenge No. 15)

Hello everyone! Pauline and I are back once again with our new I spy with my little eye challenge which takes place right here on my blog.  We're so glad you stopped by to check out our new theme and hope you will play along with us too! We had some fabulous entries last month, thank you all so much for joining us! I do want to apologize for getting so behind with commenting. Spring always makes life a bit busier but I finally got around to visiting all your wonderful entries a couple of days ago! Anyway, be sure to scroll down to the end to see who made our top 2, both which will have the option to join us for our June challenge. 

Just a heads up, for next month only  we're going to start the challenge on the 3rd Monday (June 17th) instead of 3rd Wednesday, there is a great reason behind it which we will announce with the next challenge. 

It was my turn to select a theme this time around and I chose


I spy with my little eye...........

Something for Boys or Men


We can't wait to see what you will come up with! As always the linky tool is at the end of the post. This time the challenge will close on Saturday before the new challenge starts (that would be Saturday June 15th) to accommodate the Monday start of the June challenge.

And here is what we came up with to inspire you:

My Card (Ellie)

Father's Day is just a month away and so I decided to take this opportunity to make a Father's Day card. The cute bear  and side table stamps are from the Penny Black set Love and Happiness. I fussy cut the image after coloring with Distress inks and added a little shading with a  Faber Castell Polychromo sepia colored pencil. The background scene was created with Penny Black's floor die, a dots stencil and I have no idea what brand it's by (several to choose from though!) and the picture frame was done with Penny Black's frame die. I added a Father's Day sentiment from a retired set by Whimsy Stamps.


I plan to share the card above with these challenges:




Absolutely fabulous! Please visit Pauline's blog to find out how she made this card.

What a fabulous and adorable card Ellie … your PB teddy is so cute and beautifully coloured, and I love how you have created the scene with the floorboard die and the dotty “wallpaper”.
