Bugaboo chef

Hello everyone, and happy Halloween :o)

Today's card is evidence of just how useless I am at following even the simplest of recipe challenges... this is supposed to be for the '1 circle, 3 brads' recipe at Catch The Bug, but I've just realised that as my card is round I've actually got 2 circles... oops!  I'm still linking my card up, but please delete me if I don't qualify...


Items Used
Large Go Kreate circle dies (for the card base)
Digi stamp - Chef Pierre test - Bugaboo Stamps
Colouring - promarkers & flexmarkers
Papers - Papermania Happy Days
Sentiment - NEW Simply Birthday Greetings male - DigiStamp Boutique
Brads - old ones from my stash

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Simon Says Stamp - get in shape
My Mum's Craft Shop - bold & bright
Catch The Bug - 1 circle, 3 brads (sorry, do feel free to delete me lol)

We decided to be boring and not bother with trick or treating this year - it's so cold and it's raining now too! We're all stocked up for any trick or treaters who venture out, but we've only had a few so far... think we're going to have lots of goodies left, what a shame ;o)

Hope you all have a lovely evening!

  7. fabulous image Lisa - not seen him before - brilliant work xx

  8. Fab card. I love the circles. We've only just got home and just soon after we'd walked through the door we had one set of Trick/Treaters call. Paul swore loudly when the doorbell rang and I think they heard him!!! Never mind, he was especially generous with the treats to compensate. Like you, I was rather hoping we'd have a lot of the treats left!!!

  9. Lisa this is stunning and I think I now need this image can see it being a very useful image and i wouldnt count the circle as it is your base card. See you did do it right

  10. This is wonderful Lisa. Fabulous image and I love the papers and layout.
