Doodle Pantry Froggie

Good morning! I am back this morning with a card that was rather fun to create but posed a slight challenge for me! My oldest grandson is turning 12 on Sunday...and I always make the kid's birthday cards. Well 12 is a hard age...not grown up by no means but yet nothing to childish will do either!! So, I had seen a card on the internet somewhere a long while ago with a frog and jokes on it and I thought maybe that would be just the right thing for my young man! So the image I used is from Doodle Pantry called Little Frog. Laurie does a great job with her pre-colored images and it was just what I needed to get this card together! I printed the image out twice and cut out the frog on the second print so I could pop dot it over the original image for a little dimension. I created my sentiment and all the jokes in photoshop and found that cute little dragonfly on the net. It has been a while since I really played in Photoshop and I had a blast doing so and working with Little Frog! Well I am off to get some things done today...and I do apologize to all my lovely commentors for not getting out to your blogs over the last couple of weeks...I promise to do better...and thank you from my heart for leaving love! Thanks tons for stopping in today!

FSS meets Quilling

Good morning! First I would like to thank all of the blog hop commenters for the love that was left on my creation! I hope you all enjoyed the hop. To find out who the winner of all the wonderful prizes is please visit the FSS Blog! Well after a small break, I have a card created for you...I am playing around with quilling again so don't be surprised if you see more of this in future cards. My quilled creation was layered on my card with several colors of cardstock and then matted with the spellbinders nestie...Fleur de Lis. And, the sentiment used on my card is one in the FSS store and is 40% off this week!!! Yep, it is part of the Angel Patience Digi & Coloured and the Sentiments Pack and the pack is on sale! I did add some shadowing to the original sentiment in Photoshop to give my card a little dimension. The white layer of my card was embossed with a Sizzix folder and then scored at the bottom of the embossing with the Scor Pal. Hope you enjoyed my creation, and hope you hop on over to the store! BTW, another DT member Anne has her pick for the digi of the week as well so please pay her a visit!

On another note, rather sad one, I would love you to pay a visit to my friend Glitterbabe. She has been a very good friend of mine for a couple years now...and many of you may have had the pleasure of visiting her blog and getting a huge smile from her on a daily basis. Her humor is never ending! Well, my dear friends hubby is in grave health and hospice is now involved. Please pay her a visit and leave her some prayers...I know she will appreciate all of them! And thank you for doing so!
Well, have a great day today, thanks for stopping in, leaving love and please come back to see me!
