Time For A Cook Out!

Welcome to the first official week of summer! One of the things I look forward to every summer is cooking on the grill. My husband jokes that I have taken over his title of “Grill Master”. (Although judging by the chicken breasts I cooked earlier this week, my title might be in jeopardy. Charcoal never hurt anyone, right?)

So sticking with the summer, grilling out theme, Melissa is releasing the cutest BBQ themed digis on Whimsy Stamps today. I made a card using the new image, BBQ Fixins.

Here is a look at the entire new release for this week. You can purchase these digital images from Whimsy Stamps.

These images all work perfectly with the theme for our new challenge - Stripes and/or Plaid! You can find all the challenge details on the Meljen’s Designs blog.

Thank you for stopping by!

What a fun card! We like to BBQ as well and try to do it as much as possible-could it be that we only have a short time in the year to do so?
