Hey Hot Stuff

This is for my hubby for our 37th anniversary.

I love pepperoni pizza -- would you believe I did not know what pepperoni was before I met him?  It's true!  One of our favorite date nights was to go to one of several Wine and Cheese places -- usually little homes with several little rooms that were repurposed with tables and chairs - -board games, and of course cheese platters (with pepperoni) and wine.  Nice and cozy - perfect for dates.  I do miss those places.

This stamp from Sugar Peas is perfect.
I used their sketch: Sugar Peas Sketch #45 with a few tweaks.

At Shopping Our Stash Weekly The theme is 

Something For The Big or Biggest Boy - 

I do think my hubby is the Big Boy.

At Addicted to Stamps the theme is Make Your Mark.  I colored the Pizza Chef with Copic Markers. And then popped him up with some dimensional tape.

And at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge the theme is  Anything Goes

 I made the background with a stencil from The Crafter's Workshop -- I colored the embossing paste with a bit of fired brick distress ink.  After that dried, I sponged some Antique Linen distress ink over the paper to give it a more authentic pizza parlor feel.  I added a bit of Crystal Effects to the pizza, his hat, and the wood pole.  

That's all of now.  Off to do my weekend chores.  Weekends are indeed too short.  It was fun while it lasted.  Thanks for looking - have a great day.

  4. Hi Carol, Nice to see you are posting again. Last time I checked, you'd not updated your blog for a while...Thanks for your recent visit and kind comment. I love your pizza man card, and what a terrific memory of your early days to celebrate a special anniversary. Love the glisten on the pizza too. I'd have had no idea on how to use the pizza man motif, and what you've done is so cute! TFS & have a good week,
