Hi there - today is the start of a new challenge over at the Crafty Calendar blog and our theme is 'Boys will be Boys' sooooo we need to see your creations for the men in our lives and you don't have to stick to paper-crafting.  We've been sponsored by Dr Digi's House of Stamps and they have some wicked stamps that go really well with this subject.

This poor chap has been out there building his sandcastle and has forgotten his suncream (naughty boy) so he has sun-burnt shoulders, v-neck (lol), head and nose!  Oh and don't forget his Baywatch shorts together with his sandals and socks - eeew!

I hope you can join in our challenge this time, we love seeing your creations on the blog.  Why not pop over and check out the work created by my teamies - we have four brilliant new ladies joining us this month.

Talking about new ladies - I'm so pleased to see that I have two new followers on my blog, welcome to you both.   I hope you like my cards and the little stories about our cat and other things that tend to happen to me - I'm not known as Planet Susie for nothing!

We're off to the Stamp Magic Show at the Dome in Doncaster tomorrow where we are meeting up with Sue J (Olliesmam) and her hubby Paul.  We aren't daft, the men chat to each other while we chat and shop - I think it will probably be more chatting than shopping 'cos we haven't seen each other for aaaaaaaages.  So looking forward to this.

Anyway I must be off now, next door are having a barbecue and I have a feeling Biscuit has invited himself - little devil!  They don't feed him 'cos they know he has a special diet but he does love entertaining and rolls on his back for a tummy tickle!

Catch you again soon.

Big hugs to you all.

Love Suexxx
