DeNami Blog Hop Summer

Welcome to the DeNami July Blog Hop.You should have come here from  Jennifer's blog Jen and Paper. If not, and you want to start at the beginning so you don't miss anything head over to DeNami

The theme this month is Summer. I don't know about you, but around here we do a lot of barbecuing in the Summer. So that is what I based my card on, an invitation to a BBQ. Here is my card.
 


Isn't he just the cutest thing ever? By the amount of smoke coming off that BBQ, I would have to say I think he's burning whatever it is he's cooking..haha. For the checker board "table cloth" I used the Solid Block Boarder stamp. I'm not the tidiest of stampers, so I ended up with red ink everywhere, but it was worth it.
