MMSC102 Bon Appettite

Things are really 'PUMPING' at the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge this week - we are fast approaching our 2nd Anniversary and have HUGE Celebrations planned.  To kick things off Priscilla is giving away a Cricut - yes you read that right - keep reading and you will find out the detail - or just click HERE!

Before we go too much further - here is my card for this weeks challenge.  I have used one of the fabulous DUDE images from Bonibleaux Designs - what a great range of images - there is no excuse for not having those masculine cards created - pop over and see Boni and her amazing range of images.

I could no resist this adorable Chef - especially as my DH is a Cook and this DUDE looks like he could be Italian - another match with my DH - so that made my choice easy! LOL!  I coloured him with SU Chalks and a Blender Pen and cut it out using the Spellbinders Label 17.  I also cut a larger Labels 17 with some Houndstooth DP using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur - by now you will realise I am loving this DieCutting Machine!! LOL!

I went  'all out' and cut the red cardstock with the same Die (Label 17) this makes a slightly smaller card but I love the look of it!  The cardstock and the DP have been embossed with the Houndstooth Embossing Folder - one of my favourite masculine ones.

This card is for the following challenges:
By the Cute & Girly - Anything Goes
Kenny K Krafty Girlz - Fathers Day
Sparkles Forum - Anything Goes
Bunny Zoes Crafts - One for the Boys
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
Crazy Challenge - Cards for Men
