Double Dose

It seems to be red, white, and blue week around here!  Every where I've looked there's another challenge for something in those colors.  I'm not even going to attempt to do all those challenges but will enter a couple

But, first of all - I went very CAS in order to focus on this precious little image from Wendy Burns' Etsy Shop!   Be sure and check out her digi shop and note that she'll be adding more soon!!  When you look at her digis, look at each one.  Like with this image you get 2 individual dog images, 1 scene, and one parrot with wording. This is a great deal!!!  She's such a talented lady and know you'll love all her digi images.

I'll enter this in the challenge at Simon Says Stamp Challenge - anything goes.



My second card is ....... yep.......red, white, and blue!  What can I say.  I've seen several cards using this same design out in blog land and thought I'd give it a whirl.  Another very CAS card.  The blue strips were embossed and the red left as is.  The sentiment is from Jibber Jabber, The Alley Way Stamps.  I added the star (die cut), brad, and then the ribbon to finish off the card.  As I said, very CAS but think this will be great for my OWH box!

I'll enter this in the inspiration challenge at The Alley Way Stamps.






Thanks for stopping by..............
Lynn

Two fab cards! Love that pirate pup! He's so cute!!!!!!

And the 2nd card is perfect for OWH. I've been a BAD cardmaker - not making any for OWH in months :( (hand slap!)

Glad you're being a good American!

Two super cute cards. I love these doggie images you manage to find, and use so well. He is just so adorable & nice color scheme too. I especially liked the #2 one; I've been seeing this layout and like it a lot. Haven't tried it yet. You did it so pretty...liked your star embellie too. Nice 4th of July card or OWH...whichever you need it for. TFS...stay cool.
