"Hoppy" Birthday

     Is this one of the cutest frogs you've ever seen?  What do you think -- a prince in disguise like in the fairy tales?   Or just a little croaker enjoying the spring?


     The frog is a freebie from Encino Stamps for the progressive challenge over at The Outlawz.  I colored him with ProMarkers and hand cut him with scissors.  The 'lily' pad leaf is cut with two different size dies from Spellbinders.  The sentiment is hand printed and hand cut, then matted, and that's hand cut.  Everything is popped up on a DCWV card base with dimensional dots.  I added sparkly twine and sequins as the embellies on this masculine card.

     Challenges:
Frilly & Funky (leaves)

     That's all for today.  I'm getting better at both my new operating system and my new photography software.  Give me another 5 or 6 months and I should like them just as well as my old programs.  :-D  My motto is: If it ain't broke, don't fix it!  I wish Microsoft would adhere to that idea.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
