Where's the parade?

Ok, I'm ready for a parade today.  Something fun & happy!  So tonite I have not just one July 4th card to share, but four of them!  Yes, I know.  Overkill.  ha ha  I colored up 4 of these adorable Mo Manning images & then had a lot of fun creating four totally different cards with them. Each was colored with copics. Here is the first, and my favorite.

I used the Poppy dies for the window & shutters and added some patriotic banners made with a Fiskers banner punch.  The paper was from Creative Imaginations gingham pack. (LOVE gingham!)

Number 2 is my second favorite. She was made with the same paper along with some paper from the Paper Studio. The delicate frame is from Heartfelt Creations.

Number 3 is made with a border die from Marianne Designs and Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Rectangles dies.  I used brick red cardstock for the background paper on this one.

And finally, the last one is made with the Poppy door & window box (turned upside down to create a stoop, as well as the star border die from Marianne Designs.

As you can see, they are all different, and I had a lot of fun making them. They were a good diversion for a stressful weekend, which has already included a trip to the ER yesterday with Dad.  He is better today, but still having some issues.  And making cards has always been a real stress reliever for me.  I can't wait to hear which one of these you chose for your favorite!

Catch you later!


  1. LOVE these! GREAT work:) Brenda

  2. All four are fantastic. I think you've got the order right.
    The gingham DP is perfect, and you coloring is over the top fabulous. I like how you added the poke-a-dots to Raggedy Anne's dress in the third one. I how your Dad is better and you can enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  3. You have been busy! I love that window die and she looks great perched on it ready for a parade! The bunting is wonderful.

  4. Oh I'm sorry, I forgot to add at the bottom that I hope you dad feels better soon.

  5. I love them all, and I agree number 1 is my favorite also and number 4 with the window that looks like a stoop. Great job. I hope your dad is doing well.

  6. They are all wonderful! Number three is my favorite. I absolutely love the bottom border on it and the polka dotted dress.

    1. I'm glsd your Dad is doing better. Take care of yourself, also.

  7. Oh, Sherri, you were on a roll! But how could you stop? They're all so darn cute! Your designs are amazing!
