For a lady who is nutty about fire engines

Good morning Bloggers, I hope all is well with you and that you are not in an area of flooding with this incessant rain :o(  I had planned on popping to Belper Riverside Gardens with my cameras today but perhaps it was not one of my better ideas. Methinks I will wait for a few days of dry weather!
Oh well, on to my cards for today. My friend's daughter in law works in the fire service and she is potty about fire engines :o)


I took the photographs in 2008 at a boat rally in Langley Mill Basin.
The flames are PSP tubes


The insert is the same for both cards


Base cards are cream linen card cut and folded to size. The first one is 5x7 and the second one is A6. I hope I haven't overdone the flames :o) The photographs are printed onto Papermania Vanilla cream textured card then cut out with Nesties, and layered with red Bazzill.
