Man About Town - Mug of Chocolate

Hi there,

Today I thought I would share with you the third of my samples from the Man About Town' Cd from Kraftyhands.

I wanted to do something other than a card and came up with this idea that I had seen a while ago on the net (Coffee Cup by Kittie Franken) but never got around to making one. The backing paper on the cup reminded me of the backing papers on the new Cd, but I thought I would do it in a different colour.

On the site, it is described as a coffee cup but as I filled it with little chocolate balls, I called it a chocolate mug.  The backing paper that I used for the mug is from the cd.

The tag is also from the cd. I wasn't sure about the flower. I wouldn't normally send flowers to a man, I don't know why, that's just me, but my Dad loved flowers. He was always growing flowers etc in his garden, so I guess men love flowers as much as us women. (Sorry, didn't want to sound sexist or offend, it was just my opinion!) So I guess the backing papers and some of the sentiments on this Cd could be used for male or female - so versatile.

(Oops, think I must have had one too many when I took this shot!)
I thought it could be an ideal gift for Father's Day or for a male birthday/occasion. (Blimey, it's not like me to be organised and have things ready in advance. Unfortunately, I'm usually doing things at the last minute - like yesterday, when I realised that my inspiration for the May Card Challenge for Kraftyhands had to be in - yes yesterday - so I had to set to work and get it done. I kept looking out of the window at the beautiful sunshine, but it's my own fault, I should be more organised.)
There's still time to enter the Kraftyhands Challenge. It doesn't close until 12 noon, Friday 3rd May. The theme is April Showers (shades of blue), so why not pop over there and have a look. There's lots of inspiration and the 1st prize (if you use a Kraftyhands product) is £20 to spend at Kraftyhands,- not to be sniffed at!! There are three other prizes of a blinkie.
We hope to see you there and thank you for popping over to see my blog.
Happy crafting.
