Hopping By

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!

After trying many coloring mediums to find the perfect one for a class, I had
a lot of frog samples left over.  This is one that I stamped on a scrap oval die cut.

I love plaid paper.  It's fun and seems to pair with this jaunty frog perfectly!

Teen cards are hard for me and I'm trying to get some together for the grandkids to
take with them to birthday parties.  This will go in that stash.

That frog just makes me smile. He's just too cute! What a fun card for a teen or for anyone of any age. Love the plaid you used with it too.

Leslie Miller said...

This is so cute and fun! I'm still a kid at heart so I could make cute cards like this exclusively, but then wonder who I'd send them to, sheesh. I love the fresh look of this with the plaid and the white. Very happy, and the world needs more happy!

Cat Craig said...

This is adorable, love the plaid with the happy froggie. I think all cards that are not flowers or critters are hard especially children and man cards.

Susan said...

I have a hard time with cards for teenagers too - especially boys. This one is a great idea! Love the plaid and that very happy frog!
