Father's Day / For A Guy - Simon Says Stamp DT

Good afternoon lovely peeps!
It's another scorcher of a day here in the South West & I am quickly finishing my post before I head back into a hot & stuffy room as I'm on my annual Epilepsy refresher training course today, so without anymore waffle let's get down to business :)

It's Wednesday which means -
& this week our challenge is
Father's Day / For A Guy

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog
Don't forget you can enter our challenge 5 times and there is no limit to how many challenges you combine your entry with.
Do you use Instagram ?  If so, please add #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too. 

 This week my lovely teamies & I are featuring some fabulous
Tim Holtz
   goodies on our cards. You don't have to use them to enter our challenge but we'd love to see them if you do.

On today's card I have featured Tim Holtz Crazy Cats stamp set which is just sooooo cute & absolutely perfect for a masculine card. 
I've also used some Holtz Idea-ology goodies on this card, Ribbon Film Strip, Tiny Attacher (mini stapler), mini paper clips & metal corner.
I was going to use some DCWV corrugated card stock but changed my mind and recycled some corrugated packaging which I was going to throw away, & I've added some glossy accents to the lovely big eyes.

The copic colours I've used are -
C3, C1, C00 / R30 / B23, B21, B0000 / E87, E84, E81, W00
As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous

I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Lemon Shortbread - anything goes, Our Crafty Corner - anything goes, Creative Moments - anything goes, Inspiration Destination - anything goes, The Male Room - Father's Day, Moo-Mania - masculine, Paper Shelter - sentimental.
That's me finished for today so I guess I'd best get back into my training course.
Thanks for stopping by
