#57 Barbecue King

I ♥ Promarkers theme - Men's Cards
This week's sponsor - Stampeezee

Well, another week has gone by. Where does the time go to? Another week means another challenge and this week we would like to see you make a men's card. I know, I know, they are not the easiest thing to do, but they are a necessity!  I have used this great image from Just Inklined which I think sums up most men when it comes to doing a barbecue. Fortunately, I have made sure that this one has not burned the bangers. LOL. I gave him paper pieced 'chef's trousers', after all, they are all experts (aren't they!!!), and of course, coloured him, including his messy apron, with Promarkers.  I created the sentiment on the PC, adding a metal gromlet from We Are Memory Keepers into the centre once I had inked with Faded Jeans Distress Ink.

I did a matching centre panel for the insert as you can see and I am just about to write inside it too as it is going to my nephew.

I hope you can join in with our challenge this week and I look forward to leaving you a comment if you do. I hope you feel suitably inspired with my card today and I thank you for all your kind comments as they are very much appreciated.
