Hello everyone and welcome to the Joy's Life DT Fun in the Sun Blog Hop! If you just hopped here from Ashley you're in the right place! If you want to start at the beginning click HERE...
I have to admit that summer is not my favorite season... I know, how could I say that!?!?! The area where I live gets REALLY HOT during the summer and a lot of our days reach over 100 degrees! However, I do love BBQs! It is so fun to have people over and just eat, drink, and enjoy each other's company... I have a really nice back yard and it does lend itself well to outside gatherings! :) I also really love to cook, and a BBQ is a nice way to have everyone over so I can do just that!
I decided that for my project I would make a BBQ invitation using one of Joy's new stamps! This set will be available very soon, and I love it! It's very punny (which is my fave), and it's all about summertime! :)
Father's Day Cartridge- BBQ cut at 2.65"
Everyday Paper Dolls- grass cut at .79" (I welded it to a rectangle)
Cuttlebug- forest branches
Joy's Life Stamps- Pun in the Sun (coming soon!)
Okay, one last thing before you enjoy the rest of the hop! I thought it would be great to share with you one of my favorite summertime recipes... I make this salsa/dip/relish stuff for every BBQ, it's just so stinkin' good! Trust me, you must make this at your next summertime gathering! :)
Black Bean & Corn Salsa
2 cans drained black beans
1 bag frozen corn
1/2 c. olive oil
1/2 c. vegetable oil
1 c. vinegar (I use a combo of seasoned rice vinegar & white)

1/2 red onion, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
Salt & pepper to taste
Okay everyone, you're next stop on the hop is Maria! :)
