Pumpkins Sprouting Frogs

All sorts of strange and weird things happen at Halloween - so why not have a pumpkin sprouting a frog.  I mean, we eat pumpkin pie and also eat frog legs, so why not........  I take all that back since I don't eat pumpkin pie OR frog legs.....Uck!  Anyway.........

It's almost time for Halloween and I'm trying to get mine done early this year because like it or not, Christmas is on the way!

I created a clean and simple card using Witch Way Is The Candy from My Favorite Things.  I masked the pumpkins and then colored the little frog, hand cut him out, and perched him on top of the middle pumpkin.  It looks a little like that pumpkin really did sprout the frog!  "Boo" was stamped and heat embossed on black cardstock.  Dimensional tape was added to both the sentiment and frog.  Last but not least, the google eyes were added. 

I'll enter this in the 2018 Superstar Challenge at MFT - Clean and Simple and also the challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More.



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

What an absolutely darling card, Lynn! Those pumpkins are beautifully masked and stamped, keeping the card nice and CAS. Adding that surprised looking frog with those googly eyes is the icing on the cake. Perfect design and perfect sentiment. Thanks so much for joining our ATSM Challenge this week.

What a hoot, Lynn! From the look on that frog's face, he's just as surprised as we are that he sprouted from a pumpkin! Being the middle pumpkin is in the front, he also looks a bit like he's a Pumpkin-Sprouted-Levitating-Frog, which is extremely rare. Or would that be Levitating Pumpkin Sprouts Frog? News at 11. I think you should call Nat Geo!! All kiddick aside, it's fabulous and I'm glad you entered the MFT challenge! Huge Hugs, Darnell

OMGosh, this is so cute Lynn! I love those pumpkins all stacked up there, but that frog is stealing the show! He is adorable and his expression just cracks me up. What?! You don't like pumpkin pie?!! OMGoodness, you don't know what you are missing if it is made with fresh pumpkin! lol I don't eat frog legs, but Dwayne liked them. Don't know if I like them or not, and not going to find out anytime soon! lol Hugs, Brenda PS: I want to adopt that frog!

Gotta catch up with these cute Spooky cards you've posted and I missed. Love this one, and how you've topped that punkin with the cute goggle eyed froggie. What a clever idea to dress up the punkins, and great coloring too, btw! Good for you at getting a jump on the Halloween cards too! TFS & Big hugs to you both.
