Food glorious food!

 Our challenge today at Crafts4Eternity is all about food! I know mine looks a bit uncooked but it will make someone smile when its been on the barbecue lol.
We are sponsored by 
So the prize will be gorgeous!!

My card was a commission and I was asked to make a card suitable for a butcher. I searched high and low for a digi image and ended up getting one from a colouring page site.

For my card I used
Image - colouring page of a butcher
Papers - recycled brown paper bag
Embellishments - twine, stitching, meat picture
Medium - coloured with promarkers

I would like to enter this into
Polka Doodles - stitching
Divas by design - anything goes
The Paper Shelter - anything goes
Addicted to stamps - recycle (brown paper bag)

Hope you get time to join in. Have a great weekend.
