Big Guy Grilling

Hi everyone, apologies for not bloging all week, I have been really busy doing work around the house and DT work to cover the next two weeks as my parents, sister and her boyfriend are arriving tomorrow for a fortnight (ash cloud permitting of course!) They are all coming over because it is my Dad's 60th birthday and we are planning a small do next weekend. This is the card I have made for him and I have used an image from Mo's Digital Pencil called Big Guy Grilling, this was just perfect for his card as when he is here he completely takes control of the BBQ!!!!

We also have a DT call out for our June guest designer over on Mo's Dream Team Blog. There is a fabulous sketch to follow that has been designed by Jak and you have until the 25th May to submit your entry. Why don't you hop on over and take a look, you could be our lucky Miss June!
