Male birthday - Frog Card

Well, I have been a bad blogger this week, I was exhausted after the trip over the Atlantic, and have just spent a few days getting myself organised here in Florida. I have found time to go to all the craft stores within a 20 mile radius of me though.
I fell in love with this frog image from Sparkle and Stamp, and thought he would look cute all dressed in green gingham, so I stamped him twice then cut out his checked image and stuck it to the base. The sentiment stamp is by studio G. All of a sudden it sort of morphed into a male card and I am really pleased with it, I always have a problem making men's cards look bright, I always seem to reach for the browns and dark green. Added some dew drops for bubbles. The glass is coated with glossy accents. Colouring done with prisma pencils and a goo gone pen.
I've had a few emails asking me where I got the stamp. It's from Carrie at Scrapbook Fanatics store here in Hudson. Email her, she may be able to send one out to you www.scrapbookfanatics@verizon.net or call 727 819 9300
I have also been working with my kit that Cropstop sent me for the October design team, but of course I can't share those with you yet. The 10% coupon below the Cropstop logo on the right is still valid - she has all the latest cuttlebug folders in stock.
