Warm Fuzzies

For all my friends that are still buried in snow.......summer is on the way!  Whip out you bikini and get ready for some nice warm weather.  It's coming..........

This little character is from QKR - who has some of the cutest images I've ever seen.  I think if I was sitting on a lily pad out in the middle of a pond, I'd have to have my pink polka dotted bikini on too!  (Thank goodness I won't be sitting on any lily pads this summer though!)  

So.....in honor of St. Patty's Day and all the green - and summer coming - I have a green card!  She's colored in Copics and a flower die from MFT's added.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts.  Oh....and no, she doesn't have the measles!  I used the colorless blender to give her some texture. 

I'll enter this in the challenge at QKR (Bring on the Green).

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

Oh, Lynn, this one just cracks me up! I love the 'texture' on the frog and that fab gingham paper. I wouldn't be caught dead in a bikini, pink polka dot or otherwise. lol Neither would I be basking on a lily pad (they don't make them large enough!) :-D OK, let me put on a DT hat for a moment -- I'm so tickled to see you playing along in our "Bring on the Green" challenge at QKR Stampede this week. Good luck and I hope you'll join us again soon.

OMGosh, I love this card Lynn!!! This just makes me smile from ear to ear! First off I'm so ready to see something green, I'm so sick of white. lol Secondly, yep that is what I would look like in a bikini-no not a pretty sight that is for sure! I love the texture you gave this cute frog and did I tell you that I love frogs?! Oh yes I do, and toads and turtles, but not snapping turtles! Little itty bitty turtles. lol I love the paper you used on this card and that flower-love it! Hugs, Brenda

Ha-ha-hee-hee! What an absolutely fun and fantastic card, I laughed right out loud! Love her little bikini!

Marilyn said...

hahahah... after I get done smiling, I can tell you how fabulous this is... and then how much I would probably look the same in a pink dotted bikini.
QKR does have some really fun images, don't they? I really like the effect with the colourless blender Lynn... I did that with some mushrooms but I would never have thought about doing it for a frog but it looks fab!

Sassy Raggedy said...
