We had an almost record number of entries for our Christmas/December Celebrations/Winter Wishes challenge. The thumbnail display looked absolutely super. I must apologise again for the confusion with the closing date for the Linky - so sorry. It's been really tough to pick our winners, but we did it and they are:

Beautifully CAS card with so much lovely texture.
The image is super and the stitched detail is lovely. The soft aqua is just perfect.

A really fun card - just right for a guy.
Lovely image, great colouring  and nice layout!



Lots of super details on this car, with the stag framed by the lovely wreath.
The soft neutral tones are just lovely.



A very elegant card. We liked the long, thin design.
Love the way the branches and ornaments frame the sentiment.



Both cards are really super.
We like the cute critters in the firs card and those fun DP mountains.
The second is more classic with the colours and use of plaid. Great work.



A lovely clean, simple card. The panel with the deer and trees is just super.
Love the big, bold sentiment.

Congratulations to all our winners. Please pick up your badges from the sidebar and display them on your blogs.

Challenge #51 - Anything Goes

Good morning!! We wish you all a very Happy 2017!

I must apologise to everyone - I set the closing date for the last challenge linky earlier than stated in the post! So sorry! It'll be okay for this challenge.

Many crafters find it difficult to create cards or projects for the men in our lives - both young and old. So, the aim of our challenges here at The Male Room are to help and inspire you with your masculine projects. We like to see all types of paper craft projects from cards, tags, 3D creations, scrapbook layout and even art journal pages and canvases. Our only condition is that your creations are masculine in style and follow the theme, colours, technique or stash of the particular challenge.

With all that in mind, it's time for our first challenge of the year and, after the very busy holiday period that has just passed, we've decided to keep it nice and simple. We have an ANYTHING GOES theme for you.


Here's some inspiration from the Design Team:
