Unfrogettable



Hello everyone!!! I hope you are all having a great day!!! We are getting more much needed rain today....maybe some of the cracks in my yard will close for a few days anyway!!!

The Color Challenge colors today on Splitcoast are Real Red, Old Olive and black. You will have to forgive this old Grandma today...I kinda stretched the Old Olive a bit!! I wanted to use this adorable Pond Pals set by Clear Dollar Stamps to make a card for my 6 year old DGS who needs a little cheering up. The greens aren't quite Old Olive but they are close!! This is also for Madelynn's Twinkling Tuesday challenge to use a frog on the card. Since I used 6, I wonder if I get extra points!!!







The images were all stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with copics. The CDS's Picket Fence was stamped on a piece of weathered wood designer paper and the background was also a scrap of dp. It looks like I took the frogs out of the pond and into the tropics....snort!! The googlie eyes bring the frogs to life and a clip with ribbons finish it off.

Thanks for visiting and I hope you get a little stamping done today!!!

Oh Joan...I'm sorry to hear your DIL is in the hospital but enjoy those little ones while they're there! I know you'll be exhausted when they leave... I always am but it's still precious time together! I love your color challenge froggies! Totally adorable! I haven't done an SCS challenge in a while... seems the yard work hit at the same time a bunch of functions came and I only did a couple Clear Dollar challenges in the last several days. Maybe Fri. I hope to be home then... so glad I stopped by to see yours! Great work as always!
