Simon Says Stamp Challenge at Papercraft Plant

Good morning and another beautiful one it is too ! I have another busy week coming up what with school trips, sports day, birthday parties and all the other activities thrown in on top.

Yes, I have another card to show you ! I've even amazed myself at how many I have been able to make this weekend. It's probably because I've been home alone (apart from the girls being in bed) in the evenings which is lovely (although don't tell hubby that !!!).

Simon Says Stamp has a challenge running over at Papercraft Planet called "Oh Boy" and there is a fabulous prize on offer too. You can find the challenge RIGHT HERE ! Now I know you have all been making cards for Father's Day so why not enter it in our challenge ?

The DP's are Papermania "Hampstead". These are gorgeous papers and even have a texture to them. I punched the brown card with an Fiskars apron lace punch and then ran it through a Papermania paper corrogator (think that's what its called !!). What a super duper contraption that is !!

The image is by Penny Black and is called "Fly Away" and is one of their slap stick stamps. You can buy this from Simon Says Stamp. I made a frame with the nesties and vintage photo distress ink. The image has been coloured with ProMarkers.

The ribbon, button, raffia and star brads are from my stash.

We hope you can join us in our challenge to make it even more fun !!

I am also going to enter my card for the following challenges :

Creative Inspirations - One for the Boys

One Stop Craft Challenge - One for the Boys

Crafty Angels - Favourite Stamp (it is at the moment !)

Raise the Bar - What a Special Guy

Sweet Stampin Challenge - Clean and Simple

Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Travel and Holidays (think I might get away with it seeing as it has a plane on it ? !!!)

Have a fantastic week and hopefully I will be back with more to show you later in the week.

Enjoy the sunshine,

Love'n' hugs to you all and thank you for your visit today !
