Happy Birthday, Hot Stuff! & Giveaway!!!

Coffee of the Day - Red Velvet Cake

Welcome to another chapter in my Guest stint at Inky Antics! I am still bubbling over with excitement that I am a part of this fabulous company all  month long! :)

As I had mentioned last Sunday, every week we will be giving away a stamp set used on one of my projects, either here or over on the Inky Antics blog. Last week the giveaway was at Inky Antics. this week the giveaway will be HERE!!!! thank you very much to Jackie at Inky Antics for her kindness and generosity! just because you are leaving comments and entering the contest here, don't let that keep you from stopping by the blog to let Jackie know how much we appreciate all she is doing. plus, she takes MUCH better photos than I! grins!

My dear hunny bunny happens to have a bit of a milestone birthday coming up this next weekend. nope, I won't tell you which one it is, because I didn't ask him first, but I'm quickly coming up behind him and will hit the same one next year! I knew as soon as I saw this super fun stamp set by Ronnie, 'BBQ Time,' that it was the perfect thing for Dave's card. he and the boys all love to cook on the grill.

Digital papers are Webster's Pages Citrus Squeeze. all of the elements are digital downloads, too. I love that I could download this wonderful new collection from their store! the baker's twine is Webster's Pages as well. the bbq grill die is Memory Box. isn't it perfect for this card? I chalked the smoke coming from the grill for a little extra effect. the hat and apron were paper pieced. Flowers are Prima and the wood veneer arrow is Studio Calico that I inked. I painted in the grass so our fella has something to stand on. :) other stamps from the set were stamped with Versamark along the borders for some extra ooomph, in a subtle way! that's me - the oxymoron!

now, I am going to make you work a little bit for your chance to win this set...... I would like you to not only leave a comment over on the Inky Antics blog to say 'hello' to Jackie, but I want you to pop on over to the Inky Antics Store and look through their stamps. find one or two that you think would best make a project for a special someone in your life. then come back here to this post and tell me which ones you've found. I can't wait to hear about your faves!

after you do that, then link up your name with our little blue froggy friend! you don't have to be a follower to play along. I'll give you until end of the day on Wed., Aug. 14 to do all of this. The winner will be announced here on my blog on Thurs., Aug. 15.

thanks so much for stopping by! I can't wait to hear from you! :)

Amazing card!!
I found Delivery Benton, because I'm in love with my husband and my son. And Hattie's Girlfriend, made ​​me think in my mom.


Crafting Vicky said...

Wow that's a fabulous take with this great set!!! Love this summer scene. I went to the store and I'm loving - Friendship is best. Because that is such a great image to represent friendship. I have to admit... I have 3 cats so I really do love them ;o) But it reminded me of my daugther and I with our cat!

MommyScraps said...

Love the grilling summer theme! Thanks for playing with us at Sassy Studio Designs!
Hugs, Adina

Edwina said...

The most special person in my life is my Mom. I would say Happy Mother's day Bouquet and the Happy Mother's Day sentiment would be best for making her a card.
I love your cute card. Those papers are great! I also love the twine with the button. So pretty. That is the best man grilling image I have seen. He is cute. Thanks for sharing. Edwina Brown
