Bits and Peices....

Over the last few weeks with updating the blog about the holiday.... I haven't done a lot of cards.... and most of what I have done is reasonable simple....

However the other week I was playing round making flowers after seeing this video.  I made a little flower and then played around with some die cut leaves that the lovely Betty sent me and came up with this
My flower  YNSC #26

I just love the sentiments from Inkadinkado - Kids Quotes and Tell it Like it is.  such cute sayings.

My next card is one I've made for my daughter's friend's little boy - turning 4 soon... His party theme is Firemen.... so found some clip art - printed it and cut it out and layered on the card base....
Connor's fireman card

I'm sure he'll like it....

All my stuff is packed for my marathon card making tomorrow.... 10.00am till midnight - not sure I can stay awake that long.... we'll just see.  Totally looking forward to it....

thanks for stopping by..... till later  Ciao...

Can I come with you, Dawn?! Don't know if I could last that long either, but I sure would love trying! Fun cards today! Love your pretty flower and adorable fireman card too! :)

Great cards Dawn, that flower is beautiful. Don't you just love Clip Art, I use it all the time, people at work often asked me for strange themed cards and I can always find an image there!!

Super cute cards Dawn! I really adore the sentiment on the first card, how true that is! Your family will always be there for you 'even' if friends are not sometimes? But it is great to have both!!

Loving these creative cards...the fireman birthday card is so perfect for a little boy. I love that you used clip art, very resourceful of you. The flower card is so pretty, I'm heading to see the video so I can make those wonderful flowers too...gotta love that sentiment!
Can't wait to hear about your stamping marathon...as soon as you recover, of course!
bless you!
