Happy Birthday Blogger's Challenge!

This card is for Blogger's Challenge #52. That means that the Blogger's Challenge is one year old this week! Thank you Lisa Somerville! (she's the one to come up with all of these wonderful challenges). I haven't been part of this fantastic group for all 52 weeks, but it has been so much fun for the weeks that I've been around!

This week's challenge called for a "manly" card. I'm not quite sure how "manly" this card is. It has a grill, so I'm going with it...lol! This Stampendous stamp is called Changito Chef and I paired him up with a sentiment from Papertrey Ink. He's stamped on a piece of Papertrey Ink White Cardstock and colored up with watercolor pencils and markers. The card base is Stampin' Up's Chocolate Chip. I added some Stampin' Up Old Olive and a piece of Core'dinations Jaybird to go with the Chatterbox patterned paper. Of course, I had to add a Doodlebug Designs button and a little bit of piercing in the corners to finish it off.

I'm off to get some much needed ice cream (it's been one of THOSE days...lol) and then I'll be checking out what everyone else from the group has done. If you'd like to do the same, just click on the Blogger's Challenge logo on the right side of my blog.

Please stop by tomorrow because it will be my turn to share a Storage Units, Ink & More Sneak Peek!!! I'm so excited!!! I'll also have one of their new sets to give away! If you haven't signed up to win their "MOTHERLOAD of GIVEAWAYS", you can find the link right HERE! Good Luck! Thanks so much for stopping by...Toodles!!! :D

Awesome job on coloring the image.
