Punch Art Summer BBQ



First of all I would like to thank you for all your lovely comments whilst I've been on hols and I will try to get round you all over the next few days, to catch up with your lovely creations. 

This is a card I made for my Hubby's birthday which we celebrated whilst we were away.  He loves to have a BBQ and is currently looking to replace our old one with a new red one.  Hopefully there will be some dry days this summer to try it out! 

I followed the Punch Art BBQ design on Dawn's Blog which uses a variety of punches to create this fab BBQ.  The smoke is from Swirls Scribbles Sizzlit Die.  

I made a little garden by adding some grass in Old Olive with the top snipped to look like grass then sponged a sky with Tempting Turquoise.  I added the Whisper White panel to a Tempting Turquoise mat and then attached it to a Crumb Cake card base.  

Just for you is from Tea Shoppe and I hand wrote the rest using my Real Red Stampin' Write Marker.  

It's fun to use your punches in a different way.

We have a new super promotion on this month. Have a look

You can receive a ribbon and brad pack when you spend £45.  The ribbons and brads match the gorgeous Everyday Enchantment papers that were in the Sale-A-Bration Promotion.  If you didn't get the chance to pick up these papers at the time then no worries you can purchase them now whilst stocks last. 

Thought I'd share a photo from our hols 

Boa Vista Cape Verde

Hard to think we were there only a couple of days ago whilst I look outside at the rain.  Oh well back to the ironing mountain! 

But before I go, a big Hi to my new followers Chris and Ruth.  Thanks very much for choosing to follow my little blog.  Hope to see you drop by often. x

So pleased you had a lovely holiday Aileen - sun, sea and sand - how wonderful!
Love the BBQ - what a great way to use your punches and dies! Hope your hubby gets an opportunity to use his real-life one - apparently the weekend weather forecast is good, so you may be eating your steaks outdoors!
