I'm still grillin' and the bbq'ing continues!
Although I'm vegetarian,
there's been a lot of hamburger on my blog this week :D
The new challenge this week at the CCEE Stampers
our last challenge for May from our hostess, Frances.
Sadly, we have had a sad loss this week with our CCEE DT friend, Joanne.
She passed away unexpectedly on Saturday morning
and was much loved by the stamping community.
I am certain her family would love a prayer of support
as she will be dearly missed by many.
Frances has chosen a fun theme this week!
May is apparently Barbecue Month and the 28th May is Hamburger Day….
Let's think BBQ's and/or Hamburgers when creating our cards this week.
For today's fun card, I used Art Impressions Grill Father.
This was gifted to me quite some time ago from a dear friend
and it's sat in a little folder - until now!
It was fun to color it up and create a fun card for my daughter's Father-in-Law.
Don't tell him ......
but it looks just like him!
Right down to the socks and light blue guayabera :)
He is truly one of the kindest and beautiful souls I've encountered.
When I met him for the first time,
it was actually in an emergency situation
and we met in the middle of the road in front of their home.
My driver's window rolled down, his driver's window rolled down,
we waved and introduced ourselves and he said to me ...
because the words still ring in my ears ...
"See behind you?"
I looked and nodded.
"That's your house."
I nodded again, a little surprised.
"Mi casa es siempre tu casa!"
(my house is your house, always!)
Ah! Makes me teary eyed just remembering!
It's an unusual way to meet someone for the first time,
but it always reminds me of how unique people can be/meet :)
I returned the favor the first time they came to our home for dinner ~
opening our door to his/wife's huge hugs and welcoming smiles.
I simply said ..
Back to my card!
I've created a clean and simple card ~
colored with my prismacolor markers and set onto a solid base of designer paper.
I won't be giving this card to the FIL directly,
I'll let my daughter give it to him - from her! :)
If you head over to the CCEE Stampers challenge blog,
you can link up your hamburger/grilling cards, too!
You'll also see the amazing cards from the DT - they are delightful!
Thanks for stopping by!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
I'll enter my card into: Cute Card Thursday - masculine!
