You're Invited, 3CTC21

We finally have the sun out here in New England, I thought we were not going to see it all summer. As soon as it came out I felt like making something sunny, what better than a BBQ, right? This stamp is from High Hopes, the last time Peggy and I ordered from them this was one of the "extra" stamps they sent. I was thrilled because I love their ants and this reminded me of our cookouts and all the ants we have because of food being dropped on the ground! This is how they must feel when it is warm and sunny outside.

I used Kerry's Thursday challenge, 3CTC21, for the layout on the card. It was a sketch this week. The only thing that I changed was I turned the sketch on it's side so the image would fit better.

I got to use some new toys on this card also. I used my Just Rite vertical stamper and boy do I love it. I lines the letters up sooo easy! Second, I couldn't resist the unbelievable sale that Dustin Pike was having this weekend. He sold all 118 of his digital images for 25 dollars. So when I needed a little extra on the card I printed out the BBQ supplies and was set to go. I am really falling in love with digi stamps.

Stamps: High Hopes, Just Rite, Dustin Pike
Paper: SU Kiwi Kiss, Bliss Blue, Papertrey White, DP Embossible Designs
Ink: Copics, Memento Black, Versafine Black, SU Bashful Blue

I hope you like my BBQ card, it was a lot of fun to create. If you have a minute thanks for letting me know what you think.

Have a sunny day!
Thanks for stopping by,
