A Frog or Two!
I have to start off by sending a huge THANK YOU to Nancy and Tracy! These two sweet ladies have nominated my little ol' blog for the *Excellent* Award. I haven't quite figured out how to get the little photograph over on my blog, but y'all will be the first to know when I do! Thanks ladies! You've really made my day! :D
It is so nice to have a sketch challenge card completed before 4:30 in the afternoon! I am loving school vacation week...lol! I always love the sketch challenges over on SCS. Roxie does such a beautiful job picking out wonderful cards for us! For some reason, mine never seem to follow the sketch as much as I would like them to. The Lovely Lilac panel on this card should be a little larger and then it would be a bit more true to the sketch. I guess the most important thing is that I took time to stamp...right!?!? My goal is to get at least one card made with all of my new Elzybells stamps from the Friendship Collection. I've already ordered some from the Spring Collection so I need to get some card making done before they arrive! I loved this stamp as soon as I saw it. The frog is so cute! I think that many of us can relate...you may have to kiss a frog or two before the right one comes along. *wink*
Elzy and the A Muse sentiment are inked in Black Stazon and stamped onto a piece of Papertrey White. I then colored them up with my watercolor pencils and used my Stampin' Up Blender Pen. The Lovely Lilac, Certainly Celery, and Cool Caribbean colors are all pulled from this Creative Imaginations patterned paper that I picked up when I was on the Cape last summer. I added some Hero Arts pearls, Star Dust Stickles, a Making Memories clip, and some of my favorite May Arts ribbon to finish it all off.
I will be pulling the BLOG CANDY winner this evening! If you'd like a chance to win, scroll down a few posts and enter. So glad that you could take the time to stop by...Toodles! :D
