Kiss the Cook

Well, I'm still in Kuala Lumpur on "holiday"... home tomorrow (really looking forward to that, but that's another story!!)  The card I have for today is one I made a while ago for our good friend Dave and haven't shown yet.
 The image is from Just Inklined... they have so many images that are great for "guy" cards, this one is called Kiss the Cook and it was appropriate for Dave's birthday as we went there for a barbecue tea. I've coloured the image with Copics.  Copic Oz want us to make a B themed card... B is for BBQ so I'm entering there.  Cards for Men has Cheeky Chappies and Totally Papercrafts has Humour so I'm entering there too.
I've used digi papers from Nitwit Collections - the All Fired Up Too collection, printed on linen card for a bit of texture.  Bearly Mine Challenges has Dots for its challenge theme so I'm entering there.  The border is cut with MFT Zig Zag die, using American Crafts card and the matting is all American Crafts too.
The embellishments are from my stash... I used some of the bottles in a decorated egg I did for my son's 21st birthday, I'll have to put a post up of it one day - it's pretty cute (in a suitable-for-a-21-year-old-guy way, lol)  The cutlery was from a toy tea set I used for my other son's 21st egg!  I thought they suited the theme well,  Crafts 4 Eternity and By the Cute and Girly both have In the Kitchen as their theme this time around, and while BBQ cooking is specifically designed to keep cooking OUT of the kitchen I think the card qualifies so I'm entering there.
The sentiment is computer generated, everything is popped up on foam dots.
I finished the inside of the card with more papers from the All Fired Up collection.
Cute Card Thursday ,Colour Me Copic and Stampin' for the Weekend all have Anything Goes challenges, so I'll be entering there too.
That's it for today's card... I'm off to bed - up early in the morning to get to the airport (wait two hours. as you must) and away home.  Hopefully I can get some crafting in pretty soon after getting home, I have withdrawal symptoms, lol.  Though my husband is quite unwell (another reason we're so keen to get home) and has a hospital appointment (not related to the unwellness he's experiencing here) on Monday, so I may not be back until mid week.  Until then, Happy Crafting, Donna.
