Sun's Out, Buns Out

Morning all.  The new challenge over at Cardz4guyz is 'Whatever the Weather'.  Now I must have had a card in mind when I chose that topic but, as I couldn't remember choosing it, I have no idea what it was.  Starting from scratch it is then! 

There are so many obvious choices to make with rain or snow but I wanted to do something else.  Sun was less obvious to me and needed more thinking about so I decided that was it.  I dug out a brilliant image from Mo's Digital Pencil.  Big Guy Grilling is a fabulous image to colour and I don't colour it often enough.  I chose some backing papers from a pad Will bought me for Christmas.  I'm really mean when using these papers as I only usually buy cheap pads.  This one was a First Edition Paper pad called Paradise Crush and I know he was daft enough to pay for it - bless him.  I coloured my image using spectrum noirs and created the sentiment on the computer.  I finally cut my smiley sun out on my cricut to finish it off.  

Now you had better expect some of that rain I was talking about.  I live in England and you can't have a BBQ without the weather letting you down, can you?

Please pop over and join in the fun or I won't have any projects to pick a winner from.  Besides, the DT ladies have created some awesome inspiration.

Thanks for reading.
