OWH VCMP for Labor Day Weekend, continued

Continuing with the VCMP at the Stars and Stamps blog this weekend, here's my card for challenge #6. Sybrina asked us to make cards for kids and use the tic-tac-toe grid she has posted on her blog. I chose the middle row from top to bottom and used coloring/punny sentiment/things with 4 legs. Well this little dinosaur has 4 limbs, so hopefully they'll count as legs :) I stamped this image at a friend's house, so I don't know who makes it, but I used scraps of red and green designer paper, card stock and ribbons.

Challenge #8 found here is to use a bee image with a creative bee sentiment.
I also stamped this cute little bee at my friend's house, and I went with the honeycomb theme and sentiment. that's honeycomb embossing done with 2 different folders, and hand-cut pieces adhered to the centers of the horizontal strip. Ribbon was a gift from an online store that came with an order, and I added some black and yellow gemstones from Pizzazz Aplenty.

That's all I have for today, but I hope to finish a couple more of the challenges during the coming week. Happy Labor Day!

ETA: These images are by The Cat's Pajamas (thanks Mary Anne)

Carol,

I LOVE both of these cards. The dragon with his little heart of fire and sentiment is adorable. And, your pairing of the embossing folders is pure genius. :)

Both of these cards are going to bring smiles to their recipient's faces! Thanks so much for playing along with the Cards 4 Kids challenge.
