Frogs !

Good afternoon (just !), what a gorgeous day it is out there, possitively springlike although the wind still has a bit of a nip in it just to keep us on our toes !

Today I am showing you frogs, yes, frogs ! My DT goodies arrived from across the pond from simonsaysstamp and I was so excited when I pulled out of the envelope this fantastic set of frog stamps ! If you look at them here you will see how fantastic and fun they are !

I had also seen on other people's blogs the fantastic sketch that was for the challenge on the new challenge blog Truly Scrumptious and this was the perfect sketch to use with my new stamps. You should see their DT creations, they are wonderful.

Without further ado, here are my frogs !

The white base card is from The Papermillshop.

I am sooooo sorry but I have no idea what the pattered paper is, I received it for my Birthday in a RAK but isn't it fantastic ? If you do know the name of it, I would love to know.

The bluey/green and yellow card is from the Papermania card stack.

All the stamps used are from the set "Frogs Jumping for Joy" from simonsaysstamp. I have coloured these little chaps with my faithful PM's and I used green, grass and meadow green.

The zoomz are by Robins Nest which are also from simonsaysstamp.

The ribbon is from Poppicrafts.

The flowers, brad and scrappers floss are from my stash.

I decorated the inside very simply because I didn't have a lot of paper left and I punched the green paper with my Fiskars Water Threading Punch.

The little frog is also from the same set and coloured with the same colour pens.

Hope you have a terrific day and enjoy the sunshine. It's so lovely and quiet here with the kids back at school, little one tucked up for a nap in her cot. I could just drift off myself....... !
