Halfway Post for Challenge #24 It's A Man's World

Hi all and welcome back to the blog for our halfway inspiration post.

Now onto Challenge #24, the theme is "It's A Man's World"  and the sponsor for this month is the fabulous JGD Crafts .
Here is a little bit about them.
"We are a friendly local business in the heart of Nottinghamshire, England. We specialise in both Card Making and Parchment craft products and tuition.
Janet Humphries (the owner) started her passion for what she does now as a hobby concentrating on mainly decoupage. After the shortage of local shops selling the goods she required, Janet then started running a business back in 2002 on a local market in Mansfield.
The business then progressed to a small shop and after a few years moved to larger premises and shortly afterwards opened a tuition centre. Local people who want to learn the art of card making and parchment craft currently use the tuition centre. The tuition centre also hosts event days for many professionals you may know i.e. Christine Coleman .
Along the way, the web site was born back in 2004 this originally serviced the UK, but has now progressed to supplying world wide as far as the USA and Australia."

The prize will be something of the sponsors choice.

And if you don't have your own blog , don't worry ,  remember we have a Facebook Page for you to post your entry onto. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Crafting-Musketeers-Challenge-BLOG/320703981385124
