TIME OUT Challenge #3

Hello all you lovers of your crafty TIME OUT!
You sure did blow us away last week with your fabulous entries. It is going to take us ages and a lot of head scratching to decide who we are going to choose as our winners!

Lets move on to our new challenge. This week we have our Theme challenge with an optional twist. The theme is:

with the optional twist of a Masculine Birthday.

You can choose any kind of Birthday you want or you can choose to make a Masculine Birthday card and twist along with us!

Each Theme Challenge we have prizes and this week we are sponsored by the fabulous Uniko Studios owned by our very own DT member Bev

Hey TIME OUT Challenge Fans! Uniko Studio is super happy to be sponsoring the TIME OUT Challenges this year. As you may or may not know Uniko Studio is a small company based in the North east of the UK. The company is run solely by myself (Beverley Brown) and I design all the products along with running the business and all the day to day business activities it involves! I have been making handmade cards and playing with paper crafts for well over 15 years now. It was while I was at university studying a BA (Hons) in Surface Pattern Design the concept of Uniko Studio was born and I decided to combine my passion for paper crafts & stamping with design and launched the business back in February 2011. Uniko Studio specialises in high quality photopolymer stamps manufactured here in the UK, digital downloadable patterned paper collections and we have just started to branch out into matching & stand alone 100% steel dies. Our products can be purchased through the website and I offer FREE Worldwide Shipping on all orders over £50. A small selection of our products are also available at for those of you across the pond!
For those using the optional twist you could win a £15 gift voucher to Uniko Studio (randomly selected)

And our winner chosen by the DT members will win this stamp set:

This week our Guest Designer is Beverley of The Sweetest of Peas. Beverley won our very first challenge and we are so pleased she has joined us the week. Please make her welcome and show her some love!

And here are our cards:
