Sunbonnet Fireman's Puppy

I had so much fun coloring my last project that I decided to color another one, this one being Sunbonnet Fireman's Puppy.  I also used some accessory stamps... Cupcakes 'n Books (just the books but double stamped) and Birthday Sentiments. This time I colored the fireman with blues and yellows for a little mix up.

This was a quick simple boy's card and I like that the sentiment can be interpreted different way.  The dragonflies are chipboard embellishments from Make it Crafty - always a favorite of mine!  Thanks for dropping by again and have a great weekend!

Sunbonnet Fireman's Fire Hose

I created this project for the Anything Goes Challenge at Little Miss Muffet Stamps!  It truly is Anything Goes and we love to see what you create.  :D

That little boy is Sunbonnet Fireman's Fire Hose rubber stamp from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  He was so much fun to color and gave me a good excuse to use lots of red.  Because it was a boy card, I tried to keep the embellishments simple and not so fru-fru.  The dragonflies are on the border of that since their wings are lacy but the theme was appropriate for a boy so hopefully it works.

I actually made a little mistake while coloring this one up.  Can you see it?  I'll give you a hint... I fixed it digitally on the square-on project so you can only see it in the second photo.  Do you see it now?  Yep, it's there.  But it's one of those things that if I hadn't pointed it out you'd never would have seen it.  Those are the best kinds of mistakes.  LOL



Here's a bit of something extra that might be fun for you or someone you know.  This is our rock collection that my daughter started on one of our cross-country road trips.  We were traveling over the Rocky Mountains and noticed all the different colors of soil.  So on our way back, we stopped at various places and collected a gamut of samples. 


Our most recent sample is the dark reddish one which we collected while visiting New Mexico.  We've also been able to add a few to the collection from donations - such as the fossils.  This has been a fun activity!


Thanks for dropping by my blog today and I hope you have a wonderful week.  Make sure to add one of your projects this week into the Anything Goes Challenge and share what you've been up to!

Polka Dot Pals Danielle

Get ready, I have a project for you to drool over!  How do I know... cuz I'm drooling too.  LOL  This is the Linking Train scene I created last week and have put it on a journaling page.   It allowed me to use a slightly larger surface and also fit the linear size a bit better.  And true to form... I've added everything but the kitchen sink to the page.  Beaming!


I've normally skipped out on an extensive supplies list but this one needs it!  Let's see if you can spot everything (and hopefully I didn't leave anything off either.)
