Fireman Andy

Gems of Inspiration
I just had to share this oh so cute NEW Fireman Andy digi card I made for my daughter
Alison’s friends young son Alfie..its his 3rd Birthday Sept. 1st & his party is Fireman themed.
I used the Fireman Andy digi stamp but there is also a Fireman Andy card Topper  kit.
which has a full size topper with decoupage & lovely embellishments..
For my card I printed out the digi Fireman Andy images 3 times onto linen card stock
to make my own decoupage as this card is going to 3yr. old Alfie & he has 18month old
twin sisters so kept the front a bit plain. I usually would have embellished with
buttons & stars  but in this case with little peeps about safety first..The stars & spots DP is
from Pinkgemdesigns Baby Boy Bears  collection Distressed the edges with TH inks.
The number 3 was cut on my much neglected Cricut..image is sat on Tonic dies,
stars are Lil inkers, & the curved border is SB dies..
