Welcome to the July 2010 Tour de Freaks Blog Hop! We are so excited to have you join us today,  This month, I'm the 3rd stop on the tour featuring Summertime projects made with Stampin' Up! products.  Our tour is nice and short and features some of your favorite Control Freaks Stampers. You may have just come from my friend Lisa Martz

Here at the Olchefske house, summertime means BBQ time!  Most evenings we just fire up the grill, add a salad, and we're good to go!  My husband, Gene is the BBQ master at our house and proud of it.  So when I saw the new Stampin' Up! stamp set "On the Grill", I remembered a punch art BBQ Grill I saw earlier this year on Holly's blog and knew it would be perfect for him! 

Here's the BBQ MASTER card for him...He loved it btw!
