Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the  Ice Inspiration Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)
We will be back soon with the name of the lucky winner of the  $50 Voucher !! :-)
This week the challenge is


Dry Emboss, Heat Emboss or use Embossing Paste :-)
We are showcasing Embossing Folders this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used :-)
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!
It is my Dad's 81st Birthday soon and I made this for him. I used  Tim Holtz Blueprint and Gears embossing folders. I have had this a while and never used it ,,, about time !! :-)

I love Tim's Blueprint range of stamps, I think they are particularly fab for manly cards. Don't look too closely but I had me wonky glasses on and the game piece is glued on a bit off centre. It is well and truly stuck in place with glossy accents so I can't 'udge it over :-)

I really like how this turned out and I hope my Dad does too ,,,, Mum's birthday is on the same day too !! 

Thanks for looking, Please hop on over to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge to see what our fab GD, Elena, and the DT have made ,,, AWESOME stuff :-)

Simon Says Stamp February 2014 Card Kit Card

Hi all, I am here with another card using the stamps and stuff in the new February 2014 Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp. Yesterday's was girly( CLICK HERE if you would like to see it) so today I made a more manly one :-)

As many of the stamps in the kit are flowery I dug out a couple of Simon's Exclusive dies and a couple of background stamps to help the card along. I love the pointed feathers dies and think the chevron design is fab for them. 
I will pop a gift card, or some cash inside before I send it :-)

I love these kits, it is like having a birthday every month ! They sell like hot cakes !!
