4th of July Cards

Leave a comment

I’m so far behind in posting cards. I took my annual vacation to the scrap retreat a couple weeks ago and I just can’t seem to get caught up.

These 2 cards were made for a guy at work. Mary Ellen at Dearie Dolls made a basset hound holding a flower in May. So I asked her if it could be switched out to hold a flag and she did it! So I made cards for the guy at work to give to his mom and aunt. Then I made extras and mailed it to my family. My husband colored the image in photoshop. He is so amazing and I’m so grateful he helps me in my hobby.

And this one I made for Sketch Saturday #367 since Deedee’ s Digis was the sponsor. I used Hats Off Digital Image @ Deedee’s Digis.
