Good morning!  Today is my dad's birthday and I made this card for him, the Grill Master.  Of course, he doesn't have as much hair as Moka Bobby here, but I remember him grilling in the back yard with flames shooting out of the BBQ as he flipped over the burgers, and my mom frantically closing all the windows to keep the smoke out of the house, haha!

I stamped him in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored with Copic Markers.   The sentiment is from Boys Will Be Boys and the papers are A Walk in the Park 6x6 and Follow Your Heart - Be Amazing 6x6.  The layout is Jen Shults' DS51.

Have a wonderful week and thanks for stopping by!
