Simon Says ,,,,, Fathers Day/For a Special Male

Thanks for all your fabulous CAS entries last week :-)

This week we have another great challenge for you......


Father's day is on June 17th so now is the time to get your cards and maybe handmade gifts ready !! :-)

As usual Heidi will be giving away a $50 voucher to shop at the FABULOUS Simon Says Stamp Superstore!!!!

Please pop around to visit Dora and the DT to see how we made them and of course we all LOVE to recieve comments so please leave some ,,, :-)

I decided to make an easel card I used this lovely Gruffie image called Hammock Hibernation, isn’t he cute :-) I coloured with Copics and inked the edges with Stormy Sky Distress Ink. The papers are Bo Bunny from a Country Garden Paper Pack ,, LOVE these, gorgeous colours and just perfect for this image !! :-) I used a CC Designs cloud die to cut some white card which I then embossed with a Swiss Dots folder and coloured slightly with a copic B000.

I used a Martha Stewart Icicle Border punch which does look a bit like grass ( a tip I got from Debby :-)) I made the tag on my Silhouette Cameo and it did the sentiment too !! such a clever machine !! :-) I finished with some Hemptique Twine and some May Arts ribbon that was in the April Card Kit :-)

Thanks for looking :-) Dora and the DT have made some gorgeous cards for your inspiration so hop on oveer to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to see them :-)

We also have a Design Team Call so if you are interested in joining us just hop on over and leave a link with the linky and GOOD LUCK !! :-)
