Simon Says Challenge - Father's Day/Special Male Challenge

Simon Says Stamp

Good morning and what a beautiful one it is too ! Can't believe we have gone from wind and rain, having the heating on day and night to 25 degrees plus ! No doubt we will be complaining by the end of the week and we are all too hot !!! 

We had a wonderful, memorable day yesterday. The Olympic Torch Relay came through our town of Trowbridge. I didn't really know what to expect but it was a super day and one I shall remember for a very long time. The girls thought it was "fab, way out and awesome" too so I guess that means they had a good and memorable time too LOL !!!

 Here are a few photos I have put together :

 We were so lucky and couldn't have chosen a better spot to stand.  The girls even had the chance to touch and hold the torch with the Bearer but I was pushed out of the way by the crowd when they were holding it so didn't manage to take a photo of that :(  Thank goodness I did manage to get one of them with it so that was the next best thing ! 

Wow, at times like this it does make you feel like waving that Union Jack high and proud to be British.  I can't wait to see the celebrations now for the Queen's Jubliee.

Right, now to tell you all about this week's SIMON SAYS CHALLENGE !

This week our challenge is FATHER'S DAY/SPECIAL MALE CHALLENGE

As usual Heidi will be giving one lucky entrant a $50 voucher to her FANTASTIC Simon Says Stamp Superstore !!

The DP's I used are My Mind's Eye "Away We Go

The image is from a stamp set  by My Favorite Things called "Love you Mower" and this has been coloured with Copics.  I also added some grass with a Martha Stewart grass punch

The sentiment is from the stamp set and I have placed it on a bracket tab which is a die by My Favorite Things.

We hope you can join us in our challenge this week and we look forward to seeing all your Father's Day/Male cards.

I am entering my card into the following challenges :
