Firefighter Birthday

While rummaging through my stash, I found this forgotten MFP (store now closed) firefighter stamp set and set out to make a card with it. I colored the image with Copics and die-cut it with a GMD stitched square die, placing it on a red panel where I heat-embossed the sentiment with white ep. I matted that with black and placed it on top of a stenciled background, done with a TCW flames stencil and some red, orange and amber inks. For the final touch, I added 2 mini gold brads and stamped a birthday sentiment at the top. The inside reads "You are my Hero!"

I'm sharing this over at the 2 Crafty Critter Crazies challenge for May #14 where all you have to do is add a critter to your card.

The sun must be confused here in PA today. It wasn't supposed to make an appearance but there it is shining brightly, even if only for a moment! I'll take it! I'm so tired of the dismal drearies and rain :(

Rain or shine, have yourself a wonderful Sunday and thanks for stopping by!

This is too funny! I just saw the pic of the card I made when I borrowed this set from you. It is a great set! I remember the lady I made it for being so thrilled I had something. What a fun card, Carol! Beautifully colored! Yep that is a warm sun, maybe we will finally get my flower beds ready.

This card is absolutely adorable, Carol! I love the image and how nicely it is colored! I don't think I have seen a firefighter stamped image in years! SU use to carry stamps relating to firefighters but that was way back when. Love the colors, your stitched panel and those dalmatian puppies! Great job! Yes, I had it in my blog too that the sun was out earlier and by the time I was done typing it up the clouds were back so I took it out. I hope it dries up enough this afternoon for Shawn to mow. It's going to be a hay field with all this rain but hey, I will take any sunshine I can get! Have a great day! Hugs~

Fun and lovely card Carol, so different. I have never seen this stamp, but that doggie is so cute in the fireman hat!! The stencilled background with the flame is very appropriated!! Well dne!
Hope you are well
