Hubby's B'day card ;-)

It was Ray's birthday yesterday,,, and I did have every intention of making him a card in time ,, but things just conspired against me ,,, so this is a belated one ,,, only a day late ,,,, not too bad eh !! ;-) I followed the fabulous sketch on the Friday Sketchers Challenge :-)

This is one of the newly released stamps from the Yummy In My Tummy collection from Magnolia :-) Chef edwin ;-) Isn't he fab ! Ray loves to cook so I thought this image would be perfect for his card :-) I am still into recycling after last weeks Funky Fairys Challenge ,,, so this card will be recycled into my friend's sons 21 st birthday card ,,,, he is a chef so this is perfect for him too :-) lol
These fabby new stamps are almost all the way across the Atlantic now and will soon be on the shelves at the Simon Says Stamp store :-)

I coloured the image with copics and plonked him on a magnolia plate:-) The papers are from Funky Fairys Papercrafts Gorjuss Gingham Collection
90 colours for £2.50 !! bargain !! I also used a little whitewash coredinations which was cuttlebugged and distressed with sandpaper.
The sentiment is from the
Simon Says Clear Stamps SIMPLY THE BEST SENTIMENTS Lot Exclusive Set as you can tell I use this set ALOT !!
The ribbon and buttons are from my stash :-)

I am entering this card into the Cupcake Crafts Challenge whose theme is Distressing :-)

Thank you for visiting my blog :-) before you leave please leave me a comment so that I know you were here ,,, also I have a blog candy at the top of my blog if you would like to take a peek ;-)
