A VERY merry frog! LOL!

Made a couple more cards last night. They both are very bright in color. Not my "normal" style...but the coloring works well with the particular stamps I used. Sometimes you just have to step outside your comfort zone. I know some people LOVE the bright colors...but for me they are very difficult to work with.

Anyways, I picked this frog up at the last stamping convention (comes every February...just in time to spend $$ at it and call it my birthday gift!) I believe he is by Sparkle and Sprinkle...but if he is...I can't find him on their site now. Maybe he has been discontinued...or maybe I'm remembering the wrong company all together.

For the background I used Stampin' Up's "Crosshatch" stamp and then at every "intersection" I used a white gel pen to place a dot. The saying to the right is also from Stampin' Up. Normally I'd think of using this staying only for Christmas...but this frog seems pretty merry! ;-)

I also then went back and added liquid glass (a clear adhesive that looks wet once dry) to the drink in the glass and to the olive. Added the little tabs (used a punch from Stampin' Up to make those) and some mini brads from Oriental Trading Company...and walaa...done. Actually a pretty simple card but I struggled with it. Sometimes simple is very difficult for me! LOL.

Have a great day all!
