BBQ time

We cook out a lot in the summer, which makes me happy because the kitchen stays cooler, and my husband is the grill master, meaning I don't have to cook as much. So let's celebrate outdoor cooking.
Here's a card featuring an old set by Studio G. I thought I had a die for a flower that might work for the sun, but I ended up hand-cutting the sun element (and  frankly, I'm not thrilled with it.)
I used the current Mojo sketch and the inspiration board from the Double D Challenge.

The card is for these challenges:
Mojo Monday #455
Double D -- simply gingham
The Paper Shelter #256 -- Sunny Days
Creative  Inspirations #255 -- summer
Time Out #61 -- inspired by quote: "Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine"
Word Art Wednesday ##238 -- anything goes
Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge -- use patterned paper.

  2. The bits of gingham are perfect for a summer BBQ! I like your wavy sun, it's shimmering in the heat. Now then, pass me the ribs, please.

  8. Hi Sandy! This card is adorable, and it speaks perfectly of July 4th and its celebrations. What WOULD we all do without our BBQs? Fore me personally, I use it almost every night for dinner. Probably 95% of all my meals are grilled. This is SO cute, and i can't thank you enough for sharing your lovely art with us. Have a blessed week and please join us again soon. I always enjoy seeing your wonderful cards in our challenges.
