King of the Grill card

This card is for my sons to give to my husband on Father's Day.  My husband is definitely the King of the Grill and often fires up the smoker or grill to do some BBQ!  When you have a whole shelf in the fridge for the collection of BBQ sauces and marinades, you know it's serious!  (Of course here in KC we take our BBQ very seriously anyway, as pretty much any random person off the street can tell you where to find some fabulous ribs and burnt ends.)  I've been waiting for the right occasion to cut the bird with the grill from 3 Birds on Parade and here it was!   I'm hoping we can celebrate Father's Day with something delicious (maybe that he doesn't have to cook :)

I'm going to link this to the My Craft Spot challenge "King of the Grill", which was definitely the perfect one for this card and the Cardz TV challenge this week to make a father's day card.


  1. I love popping over to everyone's blog, you see so many cuts on the cartridges that you maybe haven't even noticed before.. I need to pull my "3 Birds on Parade". Super cute card. I always love stopping by your blog

  2. i ABSOLUTELY LOVE my gypsy. Some people don't like it because they say the screen is too little but i think they are Design Studio people.. I can zoom in on the parts i need to see better so the screen doesn't bother me. i like that i don't have to dig out every cartridge i am going to be cutting with, i like that i can be anywhere and be able to be working on a layout or a card that i am trying to do.. i like that when i go to cut it out that i don't have to keep exchanging cartridges in my machine, i like that if i go to a crop i don't have to take my cartridges, they are all stored on my gypsy.. i just REALLY LOVE my gypsy. Hope some of this helps... i guess you can tell i LOVE my gypsy.. but some people don't.

  3. Hey girl...come over too!
