FREE Silhouette file, Simon Says Card and 365 Photos

I’ll start with my card for Simon Says and pair it with a FREE cutting file for YOU!

Today’s theme for Simon Says Wednesday Card Challenge is “MASCULINE” – here’s my take:

What can be more manly than a cigar (cough cough!)



Stamp – My Favorite Things

Embossing folder – Darice

Cigar – Barb Derksen


Ink – I used browns and dabbed it all over to give “texture”


And YAY for YOU because I’m giving this cigar cut away to YOU today.  This cut consists of the cigar itself, the band and a circle.  The band and circles also have an “offset” so you can layer just like I did for the band.  The “M” is not included, that’s a sticker I added myself to personalize this “stogie”  Click on the image above to download the Silhoette Cameo Cutting file.

365 Photos of the Day

Hmmm… seems I still have even one more day of photos of our fun day away at  Molson, Washington after today.  I thought I should display some of the photos my charming husband took.  It never fails he leaves his camera at home but sees and wants all sorts of photos shot (is this bad grammar?)  At any rate, my solution to this was to pass my actual camera off to him (yes, people still use these) while I used my iphone.  We parted and met up an hour later and had a little photo viewing festival later on.   I love how two people can spot entirely different things, and in some cases, the same thing only looked at in a new way. 


My brilliant Mr will be the first to admit to you he’s not so much a “machinery” person, but he does admire a photo opportunity in old contraptions like these.  The weathering lends an air of interest as well.  I think this looks like Steampunk?  It’s a stretch of my mind to think people really used such a machine and thought in that era this was a “modern” marvel!


Now this is the sort of photo I’d expect from a man.  There’s something very eye catching about this!


And this photo is not a surprise.  Other than that I missed this element entirely on my travels! 


And I totally see the appeal of this old house – though I pray he wouldn’t be looking at it like “hmmm, it would be great to live here…”


But the fact Mr Miles took this photo surprised me.  I thought about taking a picture of this woeful gal, gazing off across the plain and thinking “Why doesn’t the wind ever stop? Am I going to live here on this lonely farm forever?” 

What do YOU think of his little gallery show today?
