Thank you for sharing all your "male" inspired projects with us last week. There definitely will be some very happy Dads out there when Father's Day arrives. The DT thoroughly enjoyed popping over and visiting you all.

Now the randomly chosen winner of the Karen's Doodles prize is number . . . 20 . . .

Many congratulations and please email us to find out how to claim your prize. Please remember to put "Fab'n'Funky Challenge #76 winner" in the subject line and also don't forget to claim your Challenge Winners badge from the sidebar.

OK this week we are definitely going to challenge you all. Over the years we have all bought them, tried them once for a special present and then put them away . . . but now is the time to dust them off and make something else with them. So what are we talking about you wonder? Simple . . . templates and therefore our challenge couldn't really be called anything else but . .

"tempting templates"

We can't wait to see what templates you use from shaped or numbered book templates, unusual opening cards, boxes, bags . . . the list is endless and we know you have them hidden away !!! The DT were helped this week with this challenge but our wonderful sponsor

I'm Adela and I live in sunny Southern California with my husband and our two teenage girls! Crafting has been a passion of mine since I was a little girl. I love to sew, crochet, knit, draw, paper craft, stamp... I love anything related to crafting! With encouragement from many people, my love of paper crafting in 3D has led me to open an online shop which allows me to share some of my template designs. I feel so blessed and
I truly believe that God has given everyone their own special talents
and it is our privilege to share it with others.

Adela from Creations by AR has even got a FREEBIE section, so why not pop over and use one of the fab free templates and then join in with us on this challenge. Well the DT have been busy and heres what they have made:

(using House of Cards)

Ginny (Gift & Card Combo)

We can't wait to see what template you use for this weeks challenge,
