Top Chef at the BBQ

The weather is hot at last, mind it's too hot in our bedroom at night, and I don't mean in a sexy way. So nice Summer weather means Summery cards and my thoughts turned to BBQ's.
My stamped image is, Top Chef by Lili of the valley, great for men's cards, for some reason men that never ever cook in the kitchen are always the chef when it comes to barbies!!!strange hey...
I've coloured in citrus coloured promarkers and inked all the paper edges in mustard seed distress ink.The papers are a mixed bunch of old stash. The sentiment and fruity kebab stickers are by create & craft (not the tv show ), fab aren't they. The green spotty ribbon ,hobby craft.

challenges entered:

sweet stop : followed the above sketch.
crafty catz : anything goes
fussy and fancy : orange ,lime, citrus
ready teddy go : anything goes but with a teddy
allsorts :going round in circles (use a circle some where )

enjoy your weekend,I've got a blinding headache and shouldn't be on the pc. Looking forward to the last of the Olympics. janex
