♥ Simon Says...It's a Guy Thing ♥

Happy Wednesday! Today starts a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog! This week, we want to see Masculine cards! It can be for a Birthday, Anniversary, Valentine's, whatever you like, as long as it is for a man and/or boy!  
And of course, to go along with Masculine themed cards, who better for the Simon Says DT to showcase this week?? Of course! Tim Holtz! I chose several different products of his for my card this week. I used the Happy Birthday Wooden Stamp as well as the Collage Mini 8x8 Paper Stash. I also used the Burlap Stencil, some Mini Gears Sprockets and some Pewter Liquid Pearls.


I finished up the card with some May Arts Natural Twine. I will be giving this card to hubby, since his birthday is the 28th! :) Mine is this Sunday, the 18th. But we won't go there!! ;) Once you hit 40, birthdays aren't as fun as they once were!! haha


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




Have a super fabulous day!!

hugs...
