Busy as a Beaver!

Hey everyone! I hope my American friends have had a wonderful 4th! We had a great weekend, we did a lot of gardening. In front of my house we have some very over grown flowers and weeds, I had, had a enough this weekend and we dug out one side,  in front of the house. What a hot mess! Now we have to figure out what to put there and buy some new plantings. We also got to see some fireworks and went to a great BBQ with some delicious food.
Today is the 5th so that means the new release are out with Doodle Pantry. Laurie has done it again, another great release! This card is done with the new Hello Beaver set and I used the digi flower papers that comes with the images. Isn't he adorable ?
I also had time to make this cute guy with another new set called Quirky Alligator. For this card I used the pre-colored image and the two digi papers. Using the pre- colored images make creating a card a snap! Be sure to check out the rest of the DT's wonderful creation and all the new releases. 
Challenges:
Paper Sundaes- Stitching( 1st card)
Outlawz- Monday Greeting ( 1st and 2nd card)

Awww...these are both so sweet, Heide! I'd have a really hard time choosing a favorite! Glad you had a good weekend, and I can sympathize with you on your yardwork. Don't know why weeds always grow so much better and faster than flowers! Hugs...
