BBQ season is here :-)

I made this card following the lovely design on the Sketch Saturday Challenge They are celebrating their 2nd blogoversary with a party :-) Congratulations to the DT,, the Sketch Saturday Challenge is one of my faves and I rarely, if ever, miss a challenge :-)

This summer most of my family will be coming to stay with us ,, all at the same time ,, it will be a bit of a squeeze but there will be 14 of us !! It will be lovely, but busy and Ray will be in charge of the BBQ most of the time so I thought I would make this card for him and everyone will sign it when they are here :-)
We have a lovely dog, jessie and 6 cats and when Ray is cooking on the barbie they all sit in a semi circle waiting for theirs ,, he always has to serve them first lol

I used one of my lovely LOTV stamps that Sue and Joey bought for me at the Ally Pally, thanks girls xx :-) I coloured the image with copics and inked the edges with stormy sky distress ink. The papers are Basic Grey two scoops, all of these are from Simon Says Stamp.

I am also entering this into the following challenges :-

Just Cute Bears ,,,,,,,,,, Thank You

Your Next Stamp ,,,,,,,,,Use a Border Punch ,,, I used SU scallop punch

Corrosive Challenge ,,,,, Whats Cooking

Sentimental Sundays ,,,,,, thankful

Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)

I have a lovely blog candy at the top of my blog sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp if you would like to take a peek :-)

I really think this creation is fabulous. What a lovely idea to have everyone sign your card, great memory. Love the story of your animals gathering for the BBQ, when I get cheese out my 2 dogs and my cat all stand in a line waiting for a chunk, it's the only time the cat will tolerate being near the dogs.
Happy crafting
