Toadally Merry Christmas

Oh wow, sorry for being gone so long...time has flown by for me! I spent all day Friday with two of my grandsons and they spent the night...Saturday morning after Dad came to pick them up, I went in to make the bed and pulled my back out of place picking up a pillow!!! Can you believe that!! Needless to say, Saturday and Sunday were a wash for me...couldn't sit, couldn't stand, etc! But today I did get into the chiropractor very early this morning so I am back on the road to recovery! AND...I haven't made my bed since!!! LOL. I have been blessed with two card orders from ladies at work...for a total of 18 Christmas cards. The one you see above is one of them. One of my ladies has a relative that loves frogs...so...this is my creation for her. Pretty simple...the image is from Pink Cat Studios...colored with copics and a little glitter added to the hat. The image was cut out with the Lacey Square Nestability then matted on two Inverted Scalloped Square nesties cut in half and lined up. The background of the card was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and spritzed with Frost Shimmer. My sentiment was computer generated and cut out using the Labels Eight nestability...added some flatback pearls from Pizzazz Aplenty to the tag and used some of the Red and White Bakers Twine from Pizzazz Aplenty to tie the tag to the image. Turned out kind of cute! I hope to be back tomorrow with another creation...and I will be sure to come by and see all of you as well...I thank you for stopping in to see me today and hope the rest of your day is a great one!

HUGS!

Hello Vicki. What a sweet card. Love the image and how you have created the centrepiece, so beautiful. The embossing is just fantastic and really highlights the whole card. Fabulous. Happy crafting.
