BBQ Stan - DigiStamp Boutique DT

Hello Everyone, 
Emma had a brilliant cricket match on Monday and took 3 wickets against the U13 team. They lost in the end but continued to play in the rain with thunder overhead and still all the girls came off the field smiling.
Anyway, I've managed a bit of a play in my craft room - twice in one week! I've used one of the older images from DigiStamp Boutique for this card as he was perfect for what I wanted. DigiStamp Boutique now comes under the umbrella of Lili of the Valley and you can find some of Sally-Ann's gorgeous images there.
This is.....BBQ Stan



I've coloured him with promarkers and the background papers are from Echo Park- All About a Boy
I've used a Die namics fence die, a lawn Fawn sun die and memory box clouds.
