Picnic Thanks

Hey there - I'm popping for a quick share of a thank you card made this afternoon. 

Supplies: Paper - Neenah Solar White;
Doodlebug So Much Pun 6x6; Paper Studio navy 
Dies - My Favorite Things Blueprints 27;
A Jillian Vance Design Stitched Dot Rectangle Backdrop;
Sunny Studio Chloe Alphabet
Stamps - Hero Arts Happy Dad's Day (retired)

I sent this card to a chorus friend Carrie and her hubby who had a small group over for a deck picnic last night. They're in the meat business so we had their yummy brats on the grill with homemade sauerkraut and buns - wish I could've eaten more they were so delicious!! Such fun to get together with 5 chorus friends too - hadn't hugged them in 15 months. The red gingham in the card matches the tablecloth Carrie used and her hubby had his Weber grill out so I found an old Hero Arts stamp to match. I fussy cut the "brat" (I think it's really a hot dog) and "ketchup" (I think it's really hot sauce) from one of the So Much Pun papers. The letters are from those papers too - I had cut the entire alphabet when I made Jeanne's card the other day - only had to cut a new N for this card. If you'd like to see a Christmas version using Blueprints 27, check it out HERE; MFT only offers 3 Blueprints die sets now and this is one of them - love all of mine!!

Hope you're having a crafty day! Thanks for stopping!!
