Polkadoodles Birthday Blog Hop

Happy 3rd birthday Polkadoodles and a big welcome to the birthday blog hop, if you arrived here from D'Annes  blog then you are heading in the right direction.

Let me tell you about our challenge with a twist on the Polkadoodle blog. This week we are looking for
Male Themed
cards or projects but you need to follow the hop in order (so start at the Polkadoodles blog) and collect the word from each member's blog, write the words down as you go, and at the end you will have a message giving you more instructions for the challenge.
Each stop along the way has blog candy, leave a comment on each of the Design Team posts in the hop to be in with a chance of winning their candy.
The blog hop will end on Sunday 5th June at 12 noon GMT (as per normal challenge deadline), but as I will be on holiday until the 11th mine will be drawn once I get back.

Nikky has given me a Double Sprinkles of Kraft CD to give away to the winner, I have also added a few extra bits myself.





My card for this weeks challenge is a stair stepper card using the Fathers Day/Family Download kit. I printed the letters out and used them as templates so that I could cut them out of some of the patterned papers in the kit. I attached a letter to each step to spell out the word dad. I also used a couple of the sentiment panels from the download, a verse I found somewhere on the internet, a couple of brads and a little touch of gold glitter.





Now back to what you really came for, my word is

Special

just like me LOL!

You need to go and pay Ruth a visit now to collect the next word and continue with the hop, if you get lost along the way just head back to the Polkadoodles blog for the full list.
 Have fun!
Don't forget the challenge ... join in... we love seeing your creations!
