My card today features Moka Bobby (as in Bobby Flay), illustrated by Nancy McKinney for the Whimsical Wishes collection at Taylored Expressions.

When I saw Moka Bobby, I knew I had to have him.  He’s so cute!  And we’re big “grillers” here, rain, shine, snow… it doesn’t matter.  🙂

After stamping and coloring Bobby with Copics, I die-cut the circles using Spellbinders Nestabilities (Large Classic Circles), added some stitching and “flagged” my sentiment.  I thought about paper-piecing Bobby’s apron but decided to complete the sentiment there instead.  Afterall, you can grill “any time.”  🙂

I used Train Track Border to create a “fence” along the bottom and papers are once again from this month’s Project Pantry Kit.

Be sure to check out what the Baker’s Dozen have created today!

Thanks so much for visiting!  Have a great day!
