Happy BBQ Season!

I am home sick from work... slowly going crazy... and decided a nice summer card would brighten my mood. (Granted havin to stop every three minutes to sneeze, or blow my nose got a little annoying, but...)

I made the card for the following challenges:
By the Cute & Girly - Warm Summer Days
Creative Craft Challenge - Summer Lovin'
Midnight Madness - Sketch #62
The Sisterhood of Crafters - Men's Card
Whoopsie Daisy - HOT HOT HOT (Vibrant Colours)

The Stickers (Ketchup, Mustard and BBQ) are from K&Company
The Papers are ATD


  1. Nicki this is absolutely fabulous for the summer season. That dp is perfect for the picnic theme-how clever of you to use it. And gracious girl...get well soon. It is no fun having a summer cold. Great job with the sketch. Thank you so much for playing along with us at the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge.

    Bear Hugs,
