BARBECUE ANYONE?

Happy Monday all!!! Whew!! Busy weekend, but I got a lot done :-) Not as much stamping as I had hoped, but some!!! And, I am very excited how well the first SSS challenge is going - very cute layouts people have submitted so far!! If you have not had a chance to check it out, head on over to the SSS site, there is a fabulous prize package available to one lucky winner! It has been really fun so far!! So, today I want to share with you the card I made using the SCS sketch this week. I used an OCL set that I just love and made a summer barbecue card. Pretty simple card but I really like how it turned out!! Sometimes simple is good, right? Today is the day I spend with Tony while the kids are in school -he has every Monday off so it has become our day to hang out together! I will miss these as next Monday I will start work so today will be the last one for awhile. We are going out to lunch and then something Tony has planned....he is always full of surprises :-) Here is the recipe for this one - I will be back tomorrow with a fun project I have been working on!! As always, thanks so much for stopping by, I just appreciate all of you sooo much and love to read your sweet comments at the end of the day, they always make me smile!

Paper - Basic Black, Naturals White, Going Gray card stock, Reminisce patterned paper
Ink - Black Stazon, Stampin' Write Markers (Going Gray, Basic Black, Ruby Red)
