Full of Hot Air

Since Jim is always accusing me of being "full of hot air", I thought this would make the perfect Valentine's Day card for him!  Um.....he also accuses me of being "full of" several other things too, but won't get into that one!  LOL!

I just discovered a new digi store (to me) and love all of their images!!  After seeing so many cute cards on Connie and Linda's blog, I finally went over and checked out the store.  Adorable images and some of which will just be wonderful for these granddaughters I have that are starting to outgrow the "kiddie" type cards.   Check out Lacy Sunshine's store and you'll fall in love as I did!!!

Anyway, I checked out their challenge blog too and saw that they were having their very first challenge.....e-mailed Heather and she sent me a free image to use for it.  So here goes.............



We haven't seen the sun down this way in about a week, so the picture was taken in the best lightening I could come up (not great).  I was going to mask in some clouds behind this little guy but I got through coloring it and was so proud that it looked half way decent, I decided not to mess around with it any more.  I even colored within all the lines!!!!  YEAH!!!  Isn't that little frog about the cutest ever!!!

I'll enter this in the challenge at Lacy Sunshine (anything goes).

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

Definitely more than "half-way decent" my dear! Really cute & my DH loves frog images so I will check out this digi site. Love the image, your coloring is great, & your design papers are so pretty with the image theme too. Love the 'hot air' bit, I sometimes get the same. And not hot air either! Great card. TFS & also for sharing the new digi site. Hugs
