Come on over...........

..............the grill is HOT!!

It's coming to the end of summer for us here in the States - well, about another month officially. Our challenge this week at The Cuttlebug Spot was to use the word "HOT" on our card. I chose this fab Grillin' Fella Bella stamp from Stampin' Bella to use. The sentiment was computer generated, DP's are DCWV Summer Stack, Copics, buttons from my stash and I used the Diamond Plate and Morrocan Cuttlebug Embossing Folders along with my Nesties to cut out my image and image background.

And for my card:


and Copics used:


And as usual, I have used this card for two other challenges!

Cute Card Thursday - The challenge is "Lazy Days of Summer" and when I think of summer I always think of cookouts with friends and family even though we don't live close to family we used to have them quite frequent!

Friday Sketchers - Carole hosted with another fab sketch to work from. I flipped it and added a sentiment spot and put just 3 buttons where the flowers show on her sketch but I really like how it turned out!

And for my news.................Cute Card Thursday has asked me to Guest DT in October! I have two weeks where I will be playing along with the rest of the amazing DT so be ready to play along with me - I already have my cards in process and they will be too cah-yute!!! (If I do say so myself......***snicker***)!!!

As always thanks for stoppin' by and happy scrappin'!!!!

Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
