Simply Sunday "Food for Thought"

Good afternoon my friends,

***If you are looking for my Lasting Memories post, please scroll down***

Today is another beautiful Sunday in the neighborhood although it's hotter than the dickens.  We had a nice, brief rain shower this morning, but now the humidity has picked up again.  Doesn't do much for the hair, so baseball cap it is today.  I am so excited about today's project.  When I joined Kristal over at Getting Cricky to be on her design team I never imagined I'd be having this much fun!!!  She is truly a remarkable woman.  She is strong, funny, generous and most of all, she is very inspiring.  As you all know she came out with her own stamp line and I have every stamp set so far.  The best part of owning her stamps is that I know that every time I purchase a stamp set from her $1 will go to benefit a well deserved charity.  Also, all her stamp sets are made right here in the good old USA...gotta love that.  This ensures all product materials are safe and that jobs are being provided and maintained here in America.

Today all the girls will be featuring the "Food for Thought" stamp set.  Now, I must confess that when I got her "Food for Thought" stamp set, I wasn't quite sure about it.  You see, the thought behind them where for lunchbox notes.  Now, my youngest will be starting middle school and doesn't take his lunch to school.  He thinks his mom is corny enough and sending a lunchbox note with him would just give me the *eye roll* and a "REALLY, mom???"  So I was a bit concerned, but alas, my brain went into overdrive and this is what I made.  Now, remember how I said in a previous post that "thank you" is somewhat over about saying "Hot Dog, you are awesome"  Combining the Food for Thought and the Amazing You stamp sets.
The background paper is from Diane's Daughter
(it kinda reminded me of picnic paper or good for a manly card)
The rest of the cuts are scrap paper
and all the edges were inked
The hot dog and bun is by CuttingUpDesigns
I used green stickles for "relish"

and yes, it's a wobble

but it look so much better in person.  Maybe I will do a video ...
do you want one?

Now I hope you hop over to Getting Cricky and check out what the design team has put together and then challenge yourself to make something with Food...hahaha, just don't burn down the kitchen.

Remember, there is still time to comment on the Getting Cricky Blog hop "Run for the Fallen" for a chance to win the "Freedom isn't Free" stamp set here

Oh and before I forget, I have a winner for the "Being Featured on Getting Cricky".  If you missed the post you can go back here to see what I had made.  The winner is:
