Derek the party dino x 2

I absolutely loved this Little Musings freebie of Derek, and had to print him out immediately, in fact I printed him twice!! Hollie received a party invite yesterday morning for a triple party, 3 of her friends have birthdays in July so decided to combine parties (good idea I thought!) so as soon as I saw Derek I knew I could use him for the boys cards.
I have used the same papers for both cards with different layouts and embellies.
For this first card I have used the Lili of the Valley sketch.and for this one I just laid the papers out until they looked ok lol!! I hand stamped the greeting around the image with my mini letters as you can tell they are a bit wavey but it adds to that handmade feel I guess!!
Well Hollie lost her first tooth on Sunday and lost her second lastnight thanks to her sister! They were having one of their many daily fights, next thing Hollie is at my desk with a mouth dripping with blood and a tooth laying on the floor, thankfully it was a wobbly one!! Very reminisant of Hollie doing exactly the same thing to Lillie several months ago, what goes around comes around heh!?!
I've been into town and had a bit of a spend (on myself), I've wanted a maxi dress for years now, Gok always puts his makeover ladies in one, so decided this year I was having one!! First shop I went in yep I found and bought a black and white one, but really wanted a nice flowered one really! I said as I left the shop that as I had one I would now find loads, and yes I did! So came home with 2 dresses and long top to wear with leggings or my skinny jeans and some dress jewelery. Oh happy days!!

Such a fab card Joanne, sadly it won't qualify for the draw at LOTV as the challenge rules are that a LOTV stamp must be used x
