CWS Challenge #17: Boys to Men

Happy August, dear friends!!!

New month, new challenge, new DT member!!!

Please, welcome our new DT member Gwendolyn Goh!

"Hi I’m Gwendolyn aka desperatehousewifecraft! I’m originally from Singapore but I spent more than half my life living away from home, in places like New Zealand and France, and we now live in Ulm, Germany. I'm on sabbatical from my job in communications in the aeronautical industry, since I arrived here 4 years ago and adjusting to be a stay at home mum to our 2 kids & 2 dogs, hence my blog name: desperate housewife craft! 
I entered the crafting world 4 years ago, when I started a scrapbook a month before I left France, for my best friend there, to leave her a memory of our 20 year friendship. I remember going for a scrapbook class as I didn't know what it meant and what I had to do! Lol! She got the scrapbook.. 2 years later... and that was the last I touched a scrapbook! I tried crochet, soy candle making, and then 1 year ago, I don't really know why, I started card making. And I have been obsessed with it ever since! I love learning new techniques and being challenged by challenges. My style is mainly clean and simple and playing with watercolours, which I learnt to use a few months ago.
I'm so thrilled to have been asked to join this team and I hope you like the first card I made for this challenge, as it's also the first time I've made a card like this!"
