You're Awesome...

Hello, hello!

I mentioned yesterday that a few new crafty goodies had made their way to me last week. And since my creativity seems to have returned I couldn't wait to finally play with a couple of them. When companies like Imaginisce and We R have new releases I always keep an eye out for the $1 snag 'em stamps that they put out because occasionally they make for some great accent stamps to go with the character stamps that I love so much. So when I found all the little Endless Summer snag 'ems I had to have them... just look at that fun barbecue and Ian's massive burger! I used Ian from the now retired Mom and Dad set because he was wearing the shorts I wanted him to for this summer time BBQ. All I did to alter him was draw a tiny oval for his hand and glued it onto the burger. Then I used a foam dot to adhere it all in place so that it looks like Ian is holding it out in front of him. It makes for a simple but fun scene on a card that I think will work nicely for Father's Day. 

And since I used an older Greeting Farm stamp I decided to play along in this month's Retro Fresh challenge to use plaids and/or polka dots. I love plaids on guy cards for some reason so that one was a given but I ended up throwing a bit of polka dots onto the card for good measure as well. ;)

Alrighty then, take care and have a good one!
