SS158: Big Guy Grilling

Hi everyone!

It's Saturday, so that means one thing - time for a new Sketch Saturday challenge! As it's the first Saturday of the month, Jo gets to have a week off and one of the SS DT hosts the challenge.  This month it's Jeanette's turn and she has produced an AMAZING sketch for us all:

We are being sponsored by MFT Stamps this week and they are offering a $25 gift certificate to one lucky winner!  I love MFT, especially their dies, and I used the Die-namics Flat Bottom Clouds die set on my card. You can buy this die set direct from MFT Stamps here, or from My Mum's Craft Shop if you're in the UK/Europe.  I finally used my Mo Manning's Big Guy Grilling stamp (I've had this for quite a while, *blush*). You can buy this super image as a digi stamp at Mo's Digital Pencil right HERE, or if you fancy owning the rubber version, Elaine has it in stock over at Quixotic Paperie HERE (10% off until 8 June).

I forgot how much I LOVE colouring Mo Manning's stamps!! {grin}  I used my Copics (of course, LOL!) and paper pieced his shirt.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

- Crafting for all Seasons #2 Father's Day
- The Paper Shelter #16 Dad
- Freshly Brewed #49 It's a Guy Thing
- Scrapbook Sisters #38 A Man's World

I love this!! This is a digital design from Mo I've been eyeballing for a while. And love how you pieced his shirt so it was a print. Also love MFT dies! I don't have the clouds one, never really knew what to do with it, but what a great idea to use it for the text. Thank you for joining us at Crafting for all Seasons. And the inspiration. Feel free to enter to win some blog candy from our design team members.
