It's the Great Outdoors over at the Pollycrafts Monday challenge!

(Please scroll down for my Make It Monday DT post!)

It's Pollycrafts Monday and this week the ever gorgeous Emma is challenging us with the theme The Great Outdoors!  And not only has she come up with this brill challenge, her shop Crafty Emma's Store is sponsoring us with a £10 voucher - yowsa!

So here is my take on the challenge...


Oh boy, this card was so much fun to make!  I just luuuurve the Chester range!  This one is BBQ Chester and I am going to send this to my FIL as a thank you card and who cooked us a BBQ when we visited the in-laws last weekend.  He ONLY cooks when he does a BBQ so of course he thinks he's a mature and more experienced Jamie Oliver!  But I must say, his lamb cutlets are superb with a buttered jacket potato...yum!

Anyhoo, I'm waffling...I hope you get to play along with us this week - I love seeing your takes on our challenges!  If you need more DT inspiration, take a look at the challenge blog here

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, Bazzill Bling blue cardstock, My Minds Eye Lime Twist Fly A Kite papers (from Quixotic Paperie here)
Stamps:  Pollycraft BBQ Chester, My Favorite Things sentiment
Mediums: Copics, Distress Ink in Antique Linen
Accents: ribbon and buttons from stash

Tools: Martha Stewart border punch, EK Success border punch, Tim Holtz Distressing Tool, Nestabilities rectangle die inside card
