For my BBQ King

Happy Hump Day!  Be sure to sign up for my blog candy, if you haven't.  A warm welcome from the sunshine state to my new followers.  I'm so happy to have you here. :)
I really enjoyed making this card for my husband's birthday.  The BBQ king image is a terrific freebie from Melonheadz Illustrating.  I used it, because hubby does all of our grilling for us.  (And actually the majority of our cooking too.)  The dog image is a wooden stamp with no markings on it.  My mom got it for me in Michigan, because it looks like our dogs.  I used it, because our grand dog shares my hubby's birthday. :)  The September calendar and circle sentiment are two marvelous freebies from Bluebirdflats.  Last, but certainly not least, the banner is a wonderful freebie from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff.  I colored the images with Prismacolor markers and Prismacolor pencils.  I added some clear gel pen to details.  I used sepia ink on the calendar and sentiment and attached the banner with two sizes of brads.
ETA: After I sent Cindy at Bluebirdflats a link to this post it dawned on me that I forgot to mention that I cased her card when I made this card for my hubby. So, Cindy not only provided some of the freebie stamps, but also the inspiration for the whole card.  Thanks so much, Cindy.
