We’re Grilling and Hopping Around The Block!

Happy Wednesday everyone and welcome to my blog. It time to join the MFT Stamps “Sweet Sixteen” for another "Hop Around the Block"

Now if you didn't hop onto my blog from Jessie Rone’s blog then you might want to hop back to Kim's (MFT Lady) blog so that you can start at the beginning of the hop. You don't want to miss anything and there is lots to see!

I have a number of items to share with you today so this will be a fairly long post. All my projects today use the new “Who’s that Grillin’ Guy?” set … I just love this stamp set … it is perfect for those men in our lives. This set along with 2 other stamp sets will be available at MFT Stamps store after the release party which starts tonight at 8pm EST over on the MFT Member Forum of SCS.

Two new design team members will also be announced during the party that have been chosen from the MFT Stamping Idol final four contestants.!!!!!!! Also to be announced during the release party will be the winner of this month’s One Click Challenge, one lucky person will win the full release for free ... wow!

Ok now onto my projects for today, first up seeing that this is BBQ (Remember I am an Aussie and we call it all BBQ’s or barbequing here) related I thought I would put together a BBQ gift pack, men can be sooo hard to buy for but most of them love BBQing or Grilling right! I decorated the pail with some designer paper and attached the card to the front of the pail, attached some ribbon and voila you are ready to put in some BBQ supplies.

I also made a card which could be an invitation with the sentiment that I selected for this one … this set has lots of fantastic sentiments so it has many uses.

My final project today is a BBQ Apron card … I layered the image onto black card and then scored a border around 3 sides of the black card and folded these to the back to create a pocket that will actually hold whatever you like … could be an invite, recipes, or even a serviette to be used as a place setting … there are sooo many possibilities!

Now it is time to head on over to the amazing Amy's Blog so you can continue on your Hop Around The Block. Enjoy the rest of the hop and thanks for dropping by!
