Simon Says..........Father's Day/For a Guy

wed-newchallenge-header

Happy Wednesday!  It's time for another challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday blog!


This week we're honoring special men in our lives - you can make a Father's Day card or just a card for a guy for any occasion.  The design team are using Tim Holtz products.

We lost my Dad last September, so this challenge was pretty meaningful for me.  Dad lived to be 95 years old, and he was a real character!  He always made me smile, and showed his love for all of us whenever he could.  He was a man of faith and was more than ready to "go Home", as he termed it, and I know he's in a better place.  So many things remind me of him, and I miss him every day.  I got my love for nature from him, so I thought it was appropriate to use one of Tim Holtz Wildflower dies on my card this week:

SSS June 8

supplies: Hero Arts Earth designer paper as card base, a panel of Menagerie paper, a Wildflower die, cork adhesive-backed panel from a Textured Surfaces pack, "love you" sticker from Small Talk stickers pad, tiles from Alpha Tiles

Hero Arts Designer Designer Papers are unique in that each 8 1/2 X 11 piece is printed on one side, and white on the reverse, so they make great card bases!  Here's a closer look to show you the cork I used:

Using an adhesive-backed product really made it easy to work with this delicate die, and I love the feel and look of the cork!


Now it's your turn - I can't wait to see what you create!  We have another $50.00 gift voucher
