Confession time - I am a Canadian. So I do not claim to know anything about the wonderful celebrations I hear about on the 4th of July (but I did spend one 4th of July in Vegas - that was amazing). From what I have seen - family and friends joining for BBQs seems like a big part of the fun! So when the new Hometown USA collection arrived from Doodlebug, I decided to create some cute cards that you could take along for your BBQ hosts!


Now, I am not sure you could make it to three events in one day, but I wanted to play around with a few ideas. There are so many icons in the adorable Odds and Ends collection, I thought you could really personalize them to the host.


For the pet lovers - the BBQ where you will leave with as much hair on you as food inside you, I created this little card. It's a mix of all the die cut packs - some Odds and Ends, Bits and Pieces and Chit Chat for all of the embellishments.


My favourite one is actually this card for the host that is just a little bit "extra". Now I know the card is embellished pretty simply, so it may not be clear where the "extra" is.


But inside, your host will discover that the cute popsicle embellishment is actually a Doodlebug collection enamel pin! Perfect for the BBQ apron!


And if you are heading to a BBQ with a host that you might not know as well, you cannot go wrong with a traditional Statue of Liberty card! It's a classic that will fit the bill for just about anyone! So, my friends to the south, I hope I have done you proud with these card designs! Thanks for stopping by! Hugs,
