Welcome to the Grillin' and Chillen' Blog Hop. If you have came from(link to blog before you) then you are right on track. If not please jump on over to Lisa's blog our hostess for this hop so you don't miss any of the stops along the way.

This blog hop is a one day blog hop that is jammed pack full of some amazing projects. We have had so much fun creating this hop and we have a wonderful line up with some oh-so-talented creators. You will see some lovely projects having to do with cook outs and BBQ themes and have a chance to win some blog candy along the way.

If you are here from Lisa's Blog, then lucky you, your in the right spot! Otherwise, head back to her and start at the beginning! 

We have 2 wonderful sponsors for this hop!

Our first sponsor is SVG Attics
They will be sponsoring a $15.00 Gift Card for the SVG Attic store. 

Our second sponsor is ScrappyDew 
They will be sponsoring a $20.00 Gift Card for the ScrappyDew store.

I love how my card came out! I used a base card I had (got this great pack on clearance from Micheals) and added the fancy topper die from Jaded Blossom as a mat. The cute cow is a print and cut from the silhouette store. And then my favorite part is the yard sign die (also by jaded blossom!) and the cute sentiment is from them too! I lifted the cow and sign up with some thick pop dots as well.
