Happy Birthday Grill Master -CPS #277

Hello again and happy Friday!!
Today is my son in law's birthday (Ray) and he's definitely the grill master of the family (I must admit, I take a distant 2nd place to him!) Here is a card I made for him and will be inserting a gift card inside, since he's not that easy to buy for! (sorry Ray, but you aren't!)  Jakob and Addy made him cards yesterday but I sent them home with them and should have posted them here too!  We will be surprising him at the ice cream parlor for dessert before he and Kelly go out to dinner tonight - they are heading to their favorite steakhouse where he is not doing the grilling!  He was told that Jake and Addy wanted to have ice cream with him but little does he know that the rest of us are showing up as well! SURPRISE!!

Here is the sketch I followed from Card Positioning Systems:

Ingredients:  Stamp: Taylored Expressions - Boys will be boys set; Hero Arts, Sending Smiles Message clear set (inside);  Designer Paper: Authentique-Loyal collection; Ink Memento Tuxedo Black, Teal Zeal and Northern Pine; Colored with Copic Markers; Heidi Swapp Distress Tool; Spellbinders Nestablities Oval Scallop. Dimensionals to pop up the barbecue and flame.

Thanks for visiting and Happy Birthday, Ray!

Wait for the LORD; Be strong, and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the LORD.  Psalm 27:14
