It's been too long

It has been far too long since I have done anything crafty. Thanks to a new blog I found (actually I think she found me and I returned the visit and liked it) I have broken the dry spell. The blog I'm referring to is I like to cut and paste and I do, I really do like to cut and paste. She recently posted a challenge to create 4th of July cards.
Here's what I came up with. Not one but four cards. Since Duke is one of the three patriotic colors it was only fitting that he should do the initial presentation.



After I finished with these I also made a birthday card and started on some little crocheted owls. Both will be another blog post though.
It's going to be a busy day today, so many things to get done. But first I need coffee.

Very nice....I like 'em all!!! You did a 'bang up' job on this. I must say you're very crafty.

Now...you mentioned a crocheted owl?!!! Bet that's gonna be a Hootin' treat for me to see it when you share it.

so happy your dry spell is broken, fun for us seeing what you make. can you hear me singing Born on the 4th of July? that came to me because my friend Shirley will be 76 on the 4th and her mom, dad, and all 3 sisters and herself were all born in July. TMI??? sorry. love the cards, great idea. i thought you meant cut and paste in PS, Welcome back Duke, I have missed you in the post, Vanna Duke

so glad you've found your craft head again.
It's supposed to be really theraputic to craft I've heard.

Just a thought....Do you wash Dukes mouth as its always so lovely and white, often these white doggies have brown mouths.
I love him to bits....

They are delightful but for some reason the "For You" cards keeps grabbing my attention...

Rose said...

I love all of your designs! They're so cheerful and fun. I also love to cut and paste. There's something about cutting paper that I find very therapeutic.

Those are cute little pinwheels. Since Om only celebrates C-mas and July 4, he would approve.

Reeni said...
