This is Hot Stuff

Hello bloggers and welcome to a Masculine Bellarific Friday Challenge. For my image this week, I decided to use Big Guy Grilling

The story behind why I chose this image is quite simple cause this is my DH to the T.  He even BBQ's in the middle of winter, yep you read it correctly, WINTER. We love to eat and entertain quite frequently and both my pregnancy's were in winter, my daughter was born in March and my son in January so you can see why there was a lot of BBQ in winter.  To be honest with you my husband even has a belly similar to the one in the image but he would beg to differ.

As always I stamped my image on bellas bestest paper cause he is available in rubbah over at Stampingbella.  As you will notice I did quite a bit of paper piecing on this image, hey maybe I can enter it again for next weeks challenge :-) hehehe, nahh I have a brand new image for that one already in progress !! The designer paper I used is from Cosmo Cricket  Mini Deck called Social Club and also I used Basic Greys Marjolaine paper pad. The rest of my image was colored with prisma pencil crayons and to finish it off I used 3 coordinating buttons and voila we have a finished card.

As I was visiting the very talented Bella babe-a-roonies, I noticed I was not alone in my image selection. Well it seemed like Cathabella and Robinabella were in the same wave length this week as me, how cute is that and I must mention there cards are gorgusss.

Well bloggers, next weeks challenge as I mentioned above is paper piecing, if you don't know what that is take a close look at my card and you will see the hat the shirt and shorts were all paper pieced. Have fun and be creative and don't forget to email your cards to Emily at
