Porky's Birthday!

Evening all,

Well, I hope you've all had a great weekend inspite of the weather!!!

I've had to spend a bit of time in bed, but when I was able to get up I got on and made this card for my Brother in Law's birthday.  His nickname is 'Porky', hence the wording on the card.  He used to do a lot of BBQ's so I thought that this lovely stamp with the cook serving up 'PORK' sausages might be a suitable image to use.  Bearing in mind that the weather is supposed to be bright, and hot when you BBQ, I felt these 'hot' coloured papers would fit the bill.  The stamp is called 'Grillin' Joseph' from High Hopes stamps and was a gift from a lovely lady by the name of Elaine - thanks Elaine.  The papers are a download, but I can't for the life of me remember from where - this gettin' old business really is no fun ya know!!  The ticket sentiment is from Stamping All Day.  

Hope you like it.
