Barbecue Anyone?

Hello Friends and Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend. Happy Mother’s Day to all those awesome Ladies out there in Blog-land!

Today is a big day for me...I sold my house in Highlands Ranch and the Buyers are closing today. One less reponsibility to care for and that is a huge one for me. Yippee!!!

Our new challenge is up at Craft Your Passion and this week we are featuring a color challenge.
Our new sponsor this week is Some Odd Girl. They have some super cute images if you love to color Girls.
For my card this week I used a couple of new Magnolia stamps from the Summer Memories collection called Burger Tilda and Tilda’s Barbecue. I stamped Tilda and the BBQ with SU’s Crumb Cake ink instead of black this time to give her a softer look.
They were colored with Copics on Cryogen paper and I added Glossy Accents to Tilda’s Barbecue for dimension. I also distressed the edges of my cardstock, paper and image with the Crumb Cake ink.
Here’s the inside of my card ready for any sentiment. This card would make a great invite for a BBQ or picnic.

Supplies:
Cardstock – Bazzill
DPs – Reminiscence & Magnolia
Flowers & Seam Binding – WOC
Dies/Punches – Magnolia & Whimsy Stamps
Pearls – Hero Arts
Floss – DMC
Glossy Accents – Ranger
Ink – SU, Crumb Cake

I’m entering this project in the following Challenges:

Make It Monday – Anything Goes
Wild Orchid Challenge - Anything Goes
Just Magnolia - More than One Stamp

I hope you join us for the fun at CYP this week!

Hugz,
