 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge at FCCB!

Create a project that features cards suitable for boys or men

This Weeks Sponsor

The prize is 4 digital stamps!

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least one Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

Link your project at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog for your chance to win.

Here is my project-

Hubby loves three things...sports, beer and chocolate!  LOL Even though I didn't include beer with his Father's Day gift, I know two out of the three will make him happy.

The card:
Cut card and mat using the Just Because cartridge Thank Ewe button; cut basketball player image from the Sports Mania cartridge.  Adhere layers and embellishments.  I hand doodled lines around the mat, added hearts some white marks and still wasn't happy with the final result.  Then I used the Tim Holtz words pad and added those.  Yup, that's what it needed.

The upcycled jar:
Soak the jar to remove the label.  After cleaning with alcohol, apply the vinyl image (this image was imported and cut in Cricut Design Space).  Paint the jar lid & wooden bead with acrylic paint; attach wooden bead; fill with candy - done!

Cricut cartridges used:  Sports Mania and Just Because Cards

Tip:  Just Because Cards cartridge is a hard one to use since the buttons on the keypad are the shapes of the card (yes a bunch of rectangles!).  So what I did is number each card so instead of trying to figure out which rectangle is the one I want to cut, I count the keys on the keypad.  By the way, there are 10 images on each row on the keypad.

I'm also joining the Bitten by the Bug BBTB2 challenge site for their masculine/father's day challenge.
