Summer Is Nearly Here!

You can always tell when summer is on its way due to the smell of burnt barbeque offerings wafting through the weak and hazy sunshine air. And Bill's barbeques are no exception. He specialises in well-done sausages and burgers that would make ideal frisbees. He can never work out why all the food ends up so over cooked - its a mystery!

I've used Echo Park Summerdays paper for the sky and added my own Sizzix fence and grass.  BBQ Bill has been coloured with Promarkers and I've added him to the card with foam pads.  The sentiment has been cut with my Sizzix Girls are Weird alphabet - its great to use as it means I don't need to keep the letters straight!

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Lexi's Creations:  Happy Birthday
Stamp and Create:  Use at Least One Die Cut
