Froggy Valentine







It's time again for another challenge at Tuesday Throwdown!  We have a sketch challenge this week and I DO love this sketch!  I know I'll be using it over and over.  We're being sponsored by Robyn's Fetish so be sure and enter for a chance to win a wonderful prize package from them.  Check out all the inspiration from the Design Team at Tuesday Throwndown!

What did I tell ya about frogs......I love the little guys!  SO, just had to use this cute one holding a heart.  I really don't know why I love frogs so much because a real one really isn't that appealing at all......pretty slimy and all that.  It's kinda like mice I guess......the real ones leave a lot to be desired, but the images for cards are always cuties.  Anyway................

The image is from Robyn's Fetish, who provided the images for this challenge.  He's colored with Intense pencils and framed out using an oval nestie.  He'll be hopping over to one of the granddaughters for Valentine's Day this year.  (That's why you see all the pink!!)

Thanks for stopping by........and hop on over to Tuesday Throwdown and enter the sketch challenge!

Just left Darnell's site. Insomnia! Can't sleep. Was going to log off and go back to bed. Spotted your card and had to comment. Cute little frog. Looks like there is a hug expected. I think this card will get one when received. Blessings

Back to bed

This is really adorable! I love the coloring and the papers. I saved the sketch to use sometime. I need to start collecting them, I run out of ideas so often.

Lynn, this is so cute. I love your froggie. I know what you mean about the real ones but the images are always adorable.
Your granddaughter is sure to love this valentine.

I love the bright green and pink! I'm quite the fan of frog images too but real frogs... um.. yeah, probably not so much. He's so sweet. I like that touch of ribbon hanging down with the heart brad on it.

Linda Simpson said...

Oh Lynn such a cute, cute card! Love everything about it right down to all the hearts!

Donna Hanley said...

Just darling, Lynn. Just like the mice, I'm not a fan in real life, but the images of both mice and frogs are cute as a bug in a rug. I really like all the pink and I'm sure your granddaughter will also. Enjoy the week.

I love to catch up with ur froggie cards :) love him holding a pink heart

MaryH said...

Aw heck, he is just plumb cute. Saw him over at Carol's just a few minutes ago. It's so amazing how you each took the same image, yet had such a totally unique & different card. He is simply adorable. Now this one better be for Jim! TFS & Hugs. Oops, just re-read your post, and see that it's for one of the grands. Well, that's ok. Let Jim see it first anyway!!! I don't like real frogs either. Nor mice!

Asha said...

I love what you did with him, Lynn! All that pink to go with his green. Love the hearts paper combined with the stripes. Fantastic coloring!

Bonnie said...

Pink and green are so bright and pretty together! Love this frog and you've colored him such a pretty shade. Nothing like the slimy real thing! Much cuter!

Shirley said...

That cutie frog is to die for, Lynn! An adorable card!

Darnell J Knauss said...

Geez, have you been wonderfully busy! I didn't realize I was so far behind and boy am I glad I took the time to scroll backwards! This card? You know I share your love of frogs, Lynn ... you see that heart he's holding? That's mine!! Hugs, Darnell

Margaret said...

I love the pink and green color combo on this! The frog is so cute too! Of course, I actually like the real ones too-can't say the same thing for mice...
