Right onto information about the challenge.

The Bearly Mine Designs challenge for June 2014 is “One for the boys”.

There is a wonderful section of digital sets that could be used for boys'/mens' cards.  Some are not what you would necessarily look at ie Christmas or Halloween but on top of those seasonal specific papers there are also generic papers that could be used all year round.  Some examples are as follows:
Here is some inspiration from the Design Team. They have created some wonderful cards/creations for you to see.

Sadly we are saying "goodbye" to Sylvia.  We will miss you and wish you well.
