Thankful Frog



This card was for yesterday's sketch challenge on Splitcoast...check out the challenge details HERE! Roxie always comes up with a great sketch for us to try...thanks Roxie! It feels so good to get back into a little bit of a stamping routine! Sketch challenges are my favorite. Such a fun and effective way to learn!! I tried some new things and for the most part, like how it turned out. I hope to find time to do another card or two with that sketch...it's a good one! I'm still enjoying Nancy Littrell's Unfrogettable stamp set that she let me borrow....it is going on my next order for sure! Very versatile set and I've discovered that many of the pieces coordinate beautifully with the new Happy Heart Day set (including the "thank you" sentiment). I'm working on a group of Christmas thank you cards, an anniversary card and a birthday card...so I better get back to work. I'm also getting ready for an open House for my customers on Saturday...to celebrate the New Year and Stampin' Up's brand spankin' new Spring Summer Collection catalog...I love, love, love it (maybe too much....my wish list is sooooo long = )!!!

Supplies used for this card:
Stamps: Unfrogettable (frog) , Happy Heart Day (sentiment), Simply Said (small flower)
Paper: Chocolate, Celery, Pixie Pink, Shimmery White, Apple cider dp (retired)
Ink: Timber Stazon, Pixie Pink
Accessories: SU Markers, Stick-on rhinestones, Mega scallop circle punch (marvy), Culuzzle, Scallop circle punch, 1, 1 1/4, and 1 3/8" Circle punches, Photo corner Punch, Paper piercer, 1/4" Celery gg ribbon, Sakura clear glaze & stardust pens

Have a Great Day = )!!!
