Paper Playtime Challenge and The Fantabulous Cricut Challenge

I found this challenge over at Paper Playtime. The theme is BBQ!!
The challenge can be found on the Paper Playtime blog at:

Today I found the same challenge over on The Fantabulous Cricut Blog!!!!!
How great is that... I love when I can enter one card into two challenges!
The Fantabulous Blog Challenge can be found at:

My hubby really loves BBQ, so this challenge is just made for his cards. I've made a few, but this is my favorite one! This card is an easel card (actually my first one).

The important info:

Cricut Cartridge used:
Everyday Paper Dolls

Other materials:
Red sheer ribbon
silver embossing powder
Studio G Stamps
Gel pens

Obviously, I made this card for Father's Day so it's a little over a month old, but I still love it! This card was also the inspiration for quite a few easel cards in that time! :)

A second card I've made with a BBQ theme was actually a "thank you" for a co-worker of my husband. She gifted him a BBQ tool that allows you to cook a chicken with a can of beer inside. Know what I'm talking about??? Here is a picture of that one!

Thanks for looking... please become a follower if you aren't already. I'd love to share my crafting journey with you!

Great card, Cheryl! Not sure where you are located. Here in southeast Texas we call that "beer-butt chicken"!! :)

These are great! You sure did do a good job on the easel cards. I've only made a couple myself, but they are so fun to do. Thanks for playing in paper with us. Hope you'll play again this week - MISS YOU theme. :) Janis
