Grill Master!

Friday, June 12, 2009

Thank the Lord it's Friday already!

I could use a good weekend! Can't you? One filled with berry picking and pie making! If the weather around her permits, Syd and I will be picking raspberries and/or blueberries for some pies. Yum!

The other thing I like to do on weekends is BBQ! Well, more accurately, I like to watch The Man cook on the grill while I sip on a glass of wine. :) Perfect. In honor of The Man and his talent for mastering the grill, I made this card for him. :)

I used this week's sketch from Card Positioning Systems CPS119 for this layout. This week's sponsor is none other than Hanna Stamps! I am posting this card a little late since this challenge ends Saturday night, but if you want to be in with a chance to win something from Hanna Stamps, make your card and upload it to the CPS site quick!

I kept my card pretty clean and's a BBQ! No need for fanfare! BBQ Riley was colored up with my reinkers and aquapainter. The hotdog and hamburger images were from a stamp set by ProvoCraft I picked up on Ebay. It has some great images in it but my only issue with the set is that it's not made from red rubber. It's more like a soft, clear acrylic on a soft black acrylic base. Really weird looking but still stamps fine. Anywho, it did what I needed it to do. The 'grillin' sentiment is from those Studio G $1 stamps at Michaels. I love them for sentiments! Don't you love that picnic table paper?! I found it at Joanne's. It had ants running around the edge of the paper, which I just cut off and used the 'ant free' piece. If give the card a handmade feel, I machine stitched the edges with black thread.

A quick post from me today. Sorry about that, but I need this weekend to start early! I've got a lot of cards to make! :) Have a great one!
