Inspired By ... # 25 backyard bbq

 
Father's Day has come and gone, and I'm always sad to not have a Dad to spend the day with anymore … a bbq was always on the list of things to do for both the dads in my life.
 
This fun photo inspired a card for my neighbor's kids to give to their dad... he [and his wife] will get a chuckle out of it!
 
Inside:
". . . a SUPER DOOPER ice cream scooper!
and the best Dad we could ask for!"
 
It's easy to see I was Inspired By the silver flatware, the darling linen napkin, and pocket!  The spoon came from my abundance of catering supplies - save the Earth! use less plastic!
 
We look forward to seeing how YOU will be Inspired By … #25!

I am right there with you about missing our dads! Hugs! This card is fabulous, my friend. Adore the pocket, the napkin, the details on the pocket and the sentiment. You are such a wonderfully creative cardmaker and I'm so glad and lucky that I get to see what you create. Hugs!

Hi Michele, not sure if you've popped by Darnell's or my blog in the last day or two...but there is a solution for the emailing of comments posted. Easy fix, and it works.

Now on to that fabulous card...so so so perfect for the inspiration. Love everything about it especially the inside sentiment. You rocked this one outta tha park.

This is absolutely adorable! Have I been living under a rock...why did I not remember this challenge blog! I guess to many blogs...too little time! This card should be in a magazine!

Very clever take on the inspiration photo, Michele! How clever you are to create the jean pocket with your dies...I'm so impressed! I also love how you created the plaid pattern, and your wooden spoon is the perfect touch! I'll bet your neighbor was really touched by your thoughtfulness and creativity...Awesome card!

Oh-em-gee! :-O
What a wonderful father’s day card you made for your neighbor’s kids (for their dad)! I love it, Michele!
How cleaver and interesting it is to use the stitch line dies for the jean pocket and to fold the darling linen napkin that way!
The red tag is a cherry on top! Hideko xx
