Keep it Happy, Little Frog!

Coffee of the Day - Southern Spiced Pecan

Hello to all of you! hope the sun is shining on you, wherever you are in this great big world! :)

With all that has been going on with my family, I've gotten behind with some of my personal 'fun' crafting. one of those projects was using a Friday Freebie image from Scrapper's Delights called 'Froggy Frog' that was available last month to members of the Facebook group for a limited time. our middle son, Mick, has always had a fondness for frogs, so I knew this would make a fun card to send to him if I ever had a chance to get one made.

I combined the cutey frog with another image from Scrapper's Delights called 'Lily Pad Scene 2.' one of the houses we used to live in had a huge pond behind it and I could always find Mick out back catching toads and frogs. :) I think he'll appreciate this card wishing him good luck on finals! especially since he is studying to be a Wildlife Resources Manager!

I made the card into a gate fold, using papers from the Basic Grey Hillside collection. all dies are from Spellbinders and the sentiment is by Create with TLC. burlap ribbon is by May Arts and natural burlap string that ties the vintage button is from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I added a little dragonfly charm to the main image.

have a most amazing day and thanks for stopping by!
