Simon Says ,, Fathers day/ Male card Challenge

We had lots or lovely entries to the Simon Says Colour Challenge :-) thanks for all your entries :-)

FATHERS DAY will be on the 20th June so we thought we should get prepared ! :-) You can make any male card if you prefer though, from baby boy to old man :-)

Heidi will be giving one lucky entrant a $25 spree to her store and she will pay the shipping charges too :-)

We are joined again this week by the lovely
GD Marcea
:-) I am sure most, if not all of you have visited Marcea's blog ,,,, FANTASTIC creations !! If by any chance you have not popped by her blog then you are in for a treat !

I made my card following the fab sketch on the Card Patterns Challenge

My Dad is always reading and loves a cuppa tea so this Penny Black Bibliophile stamp is the perfect image for him :-) I coloured the image with copics and 3D'd the books and added clear glaze to the cup, I coloured the edges with tea dye distress ink. The papers are DCWV Pet Stack and I found a little scrap of small paw print paper, just enough to paper piece the armchair :-) The letters are grungeboard die cut letters, coloured with copics and smothered with rock candy stickles, all these items are from the Simon Says Stamp Store, the ribbon and button were in my stash :-)

Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-) Marcea and the DT have made some wonderful creations for you to see so pop over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to see them :-)

I have a couple of blog candy's at the top of my blog if you would like to take a peek :-)
