A summer BBQ

Hello all, wow what a gorgeous day!!
A few little jobs to do today and then I think it must be a day to get out the BBQ-we bought a new gas one at the very end of last year much to hubbys protest as he said it wasn't a real bbq unless there was charcoal-well, now he can't get enough of it and thinks its just the best thing ever!!
Inspired by that idea I have used a digistamp image from Digistamp Boutique called BBQ Alf and made this card. I've coloured him with my promarkers and used my Wellington paper pack and added some card candi -big thanks to Andree (I have finally found someone who shares my name!!!!) for the brilliant tip of buying white candi and colouring it with my promarkers-will definitely be doing that in future!)

I would like to enter him into the following challenges:

I Love Promarkers challenge 130 - Gardens
The Crafty Pad challenge 183 - Summer Vacation

Enjoy the sunshine and until next time

  1. Gorgeous card BBQ looks brilliant! Good luck with the I ♥ ProMarkers Garden challenge. Hugs Ginny ♥

  2. A fabulous man's card, in case you are wondering who I am, I am a friend of the other Andree. I thought she had been commenting on her own blog until she explained you both had the same name! lol x

    1. Haha Jane, how funny!!! That's how I felt when I saw a comment Andree had made on someone's blog and didn't remember writing it, which of course I hadn't -all very weird when you get used to no-one ever having your name!!!!
      Thank you for being a new follower.xx

  3. A great card Andree, that's a super image. I'm glad you liked the tip about the Candi.
    I'm pleased you and Jane have "met", now she knows I'm not just talking to myself (as per usual)! x

  4. Fabulous card Andree. The design and the papers just suit the image perfectly. x

  5. Such a cute little card for a man! Thanks for playing at The Crafty Pad this time! Don't forget winners will be announced here on Thursday & our new challenge starts today!
    Good Luck
