A Little Less Green


Time to tone down that green! Every time I look at my previous post I KNOW why I hadn't used that Green Galore before! It just kinda "jumps" out at you. In the future I think I'll just use it as like an accent piece or something.

This one is using Wild Wasabi and Bashful Blue. I have no idea why I decided to use those two colors but after coloring the frog in green and the flower in blue with my markers I just felt it needed those two colors - and then was glad I did, as it matches the ribbon perfectly. The stamps I used are from the Unfrogettable set (SU). The ribbon is actually some Christmas ribbon that I got at Michaels last year - but it just never looked like Christmas to me. The sketch is from the Clean and Simple Stamping, FTL92.

Where is all this GREEN coming from!!!! I'm not even a real big fan of alot of green, yet here I have another post using green on a card. I really think it's because I've canned SO MANY green beans that I have "green" on my mind! LOL! I just got though canning another 11 jars this morning - and will have to pick them again tomorrow! I think that makes 42 jars so far! At least the tomatoes, okra, cucumber, and squash haven't hit good yet........when they do, then I just get super busy again.......

Thanks for stopping by.................

Cute! Love the *Christmas* ribbon. Yuck on the canning...been there, done that, won't go back for a while! Though I have to admit it's good eatin' in the winter.

Your card is adorable, I love these colors together. Your ribbon is perfect, but like you, not seeing Christmas in it.

I used to can when I lived in Maine and had the room for a big garden. I really enjoyed it and miss it very much. Good for you!

Oh my goodness Lynn, I can't imagine picking and canning one jar of beans let alone 42 with more to come. You're working to hard and need to stop and make another sweet card like the froggy card. Too cute!

Your card is just adorable...I love the colours you chose and the googly eyes. I own that SU stamp set and might just have to dust it off in the near future.

Love this sweet froggy with the fabulous polka dot ribbon and embossed dot background!! Adorable!

Lynn, your wild wasabi is perfect for this card. I agree with you - green galore was just too bright for anything. I'm not sorry to see it go. I packed mine up, with the accompanying ink, markers, etc. and they are ready to go to Ronald McDonald's crafting room.

Your card is gorgeous. I love the dots on the horizontal stripe, too
fabulous!
