The Big Guy Grills Card



I’m back with another card. Did you think I was MIA? Last Thursday was the annual appointment with the ophthalmologist and sure enough it was hours and hours before the lights didn’t hurt my eyes from those drops he put in. Friday we had deadly thunderstorms…yes, deadly. Sadly a young university student decided to take shelter from the rain at 9:00 a.m. and stood under some trees and was struck and killed by lightning. Please people; do not stand under trees in a thunderstorm, or anywhere there is a draft, like a pavilion. Better to just get wet. About 8:00 that night we had more thunderstorms go through so I wasn’t on the computer long enough to post anything. Of course, I seldom post on the weekend so here it is Monday again. 

Today was the first day back to making charity quilts at the church. We all have such fun doing this. My speech was a bit bizarre today but they are used to that and just laugh right along with me. That’s the kind of friends to have; ones that laugh with you and not at you!

So today I’m posting the card I was going to post on Friday. This was made for the Stamping Bella weekly challenge.


Her challenge was to use paper piecing on the card – which is his shirt. You stamp the image on cardstock and colour it and then stamp it again on patterned paper and cut it out and glue it over the other image. I love toding this so this was an easy card for me to do. The image was coloured with my Prismacolor pencils, except for the light blue around the image and the yellow around the flame which is chalk.

Next week’s challenge is a sketch. If you have a current Stamping Bella stamps, check out her blog for the sketch and enter.

That’s all for a Monday,

Cheers
Violet

Love this card! I'd say your paper piecing is spot on! :) No rain here to speak of but i did not have to turn the air-condition on yesterday which was a blessing. Now today and the rest of the week is forecast 95 and above ....sigh....The mornings have been wonderfully cool though..down into the 50's Yeah baby!!! :)

It is good that your friends can laugh with you... but i think it helps that you can laugh at yourself..not everybody can..... Big Hugs! Stay Safe! deb
