♥ Simon Says... Father's Day/For a Male! ♥

Father's Day is right around the corner! June 17th will be here before we know it! So why not get a head start on those cards for Dad! You can even make a birthday card or whatever you want as long as it's for a special man in your life! So join this week's challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog and show us your Male cards!!

For my card I used a simple yet fabulous stamp by Inkadinkado called simply "Happy Father's Day"! I just stamped it in Black ink by Memento and then matted the image onto blue and kraft cardstock.


I also used some papers from My Mind's Eye Be Amazing 6x6 Paper Pad. I love the soft, muted yet manly papers in this pad. I finished it off with some hemp twine, Maya Road Star Pin and some Liquid Pearls in Platinum Pearl.

And, don't forget, Heidi will generously give the random winner of this challenge a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore! Good luck everyone!




I will have my giveaway winner up here in a couple of days! Thank you to all who joined!! :) Good Luck everyone!!
