A belated Happy 4th July!

Hello all!
I hope this post finds you enjoying your Friday and to those of you Stateside, I hope you had a fabulous 4th!!  We've taken advantage of the long weekend and have headed out to upstate New York, hoping to avoid the thunderstorms.
    It's time for another challenge over at The Outlawz alcohol markers DT and keeping in theme with the 4th, we're asking you to show us something related to picnics and barbecues - enjoying a culinary experience in the Great Outdoors!
              I decided to use one of the very funny images from Bugaboo as it struck a chord with me - I can definitely see myself and a couple of good friends (no names will be mentioned), heading out for a "vinous picnic".  Enough said :)

     Simply done (no surprises there) - I just cut a polaroid style frame from white cardstock with a computer printed sentiment, put that on a black card base and added a couple of bits of washi tape.

A short post but I'm not really here!  Hope your weekend is a good one :)

Hi Dawn, I am just checking my email and thought I would open a few, one of which is this one...I had to laugh because I have this same image/card waiting to be posted at home as I made it for my girlfriends birthday. Our minds where thinking alike with this one. The image needs nothing other than than the image itself because it is so funny, and you've coloured it perfectly!!! I bought this image a year ago because it totally reminded me of her and I. I dropped it in the mail before I left for England, which is beautiful where I am btw, and like last year the weather is wonderful. Take care and keep making these smashing cards :)S

Seriously fun card. Great image, beautifully colored, and THE perfect sentiment. I love the clean and simple design with the embellishment just being a touch of Washi tape!
