Yes, yes those of you who know me are really giving this post the stink eye. I'm not a fan of summer. Agreed. I'm not trying to tell stories out of turn.
You see, Sheila over at She's A Sassy Lady is excited about hot weather and grasshoppers and mosquitoes, and she's celebrating the long-awaited arrival of sunshine with a challenge.
It's still OK for me to celebrate, too, since I do love one thing about summer: Barbecue. Slap any old vegetable or whatever else on the grill and I'm pretty happy. Even if it gets a little charred, even yummier.
So, here's my summertime tribute card. The grill and fixins' are on the From My Kitchen Cricut cartridge, the grass is from the 2010 Easter cartridge.
The corn and oven mitt are textured with Cuttlebug folders and Sharpie markers (I know, Sharpies).
If you look closely you'll see that the grill's coals are red hot ... or at least really glittery from Stampendous red tinsel embossing powder.
The butterfly embellishment is a glossy card stock die cut from the Dollar Tree. The overall card was created in Design Studio by welding the "Barbeque" sentiment with oval frame to the barbecue cut.
By the way, have all of you tried Smore's? My Guy introduced me to them only last summer -- all I can say is "No freakin' wonder people are always yammering about those things."
I like mine with a crispy-fried marshmallow.
