Guesting with a Frog!

 I'm so excited to announce that I'm the guest designer at The Male Room challenge!  What a wonderful honor and especially nice since I love making cards for males!

The theme for this challenge is My Bad/Sorry.   I don't know about you, but I can be very late getting out birthday cards so I always like to have a stack of them on hand.  I seem to be saying "sorry" a lot on cards lately.

This little guy just seems to fit the bill for a late birthday card for a guy. I stamped the background on vanilla card stock with Flores Suaves from Stampin' Up and then used some distress ink in Shabby Shutters and Mowed Lawn.  The star of the show though is that frog - isn't he the cutest!  He's from Technique Tuesday along with the flying insects and sentiment.  I topped him off with a birthday hat from Tim Holtz.

It looks like I must have frogs on my brain since my last post had one on it too!  I think they always make a cute card though and they always make me smile!

Thanks for stopping by..........and be sure and check out The Male Room!

A Girl and Her Frog - 2 Crafty Critter Crazies

It's time again for another challenge at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies!  We'd love to have you come over and join us for the challenge.  All you have to do is create a card or project and feature a critter (animal) on it.  There's always a prize to be had too so take a peek at the blog.

This image is from Ching-Chou Kuik who is our sponsor this month.   I've colored it with Copics, framed it out and added a sentiment embossed on vellum  Ching-Chou Kuik has some really pretty images so check them out when you get a chance.

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