Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for the  Masculine/Father's Day Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

This week the challenge is ,,,,,,,,


Think Trains, Planes, Automobiles, Hot Air balloons, Donkeys etc ,,,,,

We are showcasing Basic Grey products this week, you don't have to use them, but if you have them we would love to see them  :-)

As always Heidi will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!

 For my card I went all 'Nautical' and was thinking of the Fastnet Yacht Race when making this :-)

The Basic Grey Products I used are a  Serenade Paper Pack, I thought the map design was perfect for a yacht race and the card was designed from that point. I also used a Precision File to file some little bits off the shrink plastic I used for the little anchor :-)

I will link all the products I used at the bottom, just to say that I used a wood grain mask on the torn white card to create the 'swirly sea' using a pearl acrylic dabber, I also used this on the die cut waves.

Thanks for looking :-) Our fabulous Designer in the Spotlight, Wida, and the DT have made some fabulous cards so please hop on over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to see them.

I decided to go with the LIM option and used 2 of my new Unity Stamps to make a CAS card and tag

Aren't these little fella's CUTE :-)

I might just mass produce this design, I always need lots of cards for hubby's work colleagues etc and think this could work ,,, what do you think ?? :-)

Aww,, love this cutie :-) I cut the tag on my fabulous Silhouette Cameo ,,,, LOVE that machine !! It's BRILLIANT :-) So handy to be able to get the designs you need immediately ! I have a Cricut too but find their cartridges expensive and I only used one or 2 designs from each one. 

Thanks for looking, the DT have made some gorgeous cards so please hop on over to the ABC Christmas Challenge to see them :-)

Challenges : to be added

Hope you all have a great week :-)
