What a Happy Chef

Hi everyone!   I hope you're having a good week.  
It's been brutally cold here with a -21 deg.C temp yesterday
...but at least the sun was shining.

This is the first post of 2015 for Team B at  
and we're starting off with the theme of Dies and/or Punches.

I've used the fabulous Pizza Chef on my card today and he can be found here

Memory Box Grand Happy Birthday Die
Coloured with Copics
DP - DCW textured
Die-Namics Stitched Square Die
Tim Holtz twine
LOTV sentiment stamp

And now as always our sponsors are Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter  
                                                and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30 to spend on their website

when you have used one of The Paper Shelter products on your card and are the lucky winner.
 This could be either a image, paper or printable and you will find a very comprehensive selection  
here on their website, but even if you have not they will still give you 3 digi images or your own choice. 
 I would like to enter the following challenges:
CCC Digi Creations #16 :   Digi/embellish
Cardz 4 Guys Challenge - Happy Birthday
Die Cut Diva's - Anything Goes
Pile it on Challenge #51 - Something Edible
Sisters of Craft - January Challenge - Anything Goes
The Kraft Journal #206 - (pattern paper, die cut,  white)
Word Art Wednesday Challenge #166 - Anything Goes
Whoopsi Daisy Challenge - Anything goes

Thanks for stopping by today.  We'd love it if you could play along with us this week 
and visit the challenge to see what my talented team mates have created.
