Paper Playtime - Hot and Spicy

Happy Monday everyone!  It is Delicious Die Cuts challenge day over at Paper Playtime, where we are given a theme, and challenged to use a die-cutting machine to fulfill it :)  Janis gave us a great one this week - Hot and Spicy - it can be interpreted however you want - weather, food, culture, sexy... Here is what I came up with:

I must admit, I was a bit stumped here.  I had an idea, but I didn't have anything on my cartridges that matched the idea in my head.  Then I decided to take a turn and go for a sexy card - my husband actually laughed at me when I told him that - I am so not a "sexy" kind of girl...  In the end, I thought about the things that I love that are hot and spicy - a great big bowl of chili came to mind.  My mum makes chili in an old dark blue Le Creuset pot, hence this card was born.

This is a 4x4 card.  I cut the pot from From My Kitchen and her cutie little face is from PK Princess Faces.  The sentiment is from Scrappy Mom's A Pinch and a Dash stamp set.  I doodled around with my Sakura Jelly Roll pens.  All the paper is from CTMH and the ribbon is from SU.

There is a prize this week for one lucky participant, The Robin's Nest is going to give one fortunate person a $15 gift certificate - they have some great stuff there!!

Hop on over to Paper Playtime, see what the DT came up with to inspire you and play along with us.  You could win a great prize :)

A la prochaine...
