This month's hop theme is "Animals".  I must admit when I first heard this, I was a little stumped as I do not do a lot of cards or projects that have animals on them outside of butterflies.  I had it on the brain so much that I woke up one morning and had dreamed of the card I wanted to make.  Have you ever had something like that happen to you?  LOL...


My card has a a hippity hoppity Frog.... you just have to smile.  I love the color combination of the green and bright yellow.  I used three different Stampin' Up Stamp sets with this card - Work of Art, Gorgeous Grunge and You're Sublime.

I used Cucumber Crush and Daffodil Delight for my color combination. 


 I colored in the little toad using my blender pen and the Cucumber Crush color.  I stamped the Chevron's in the Daffodil Delight and splattered the top with the Gorgeous Grunge set in Cucumber Crush.  I used linen thread, flags and sequins as accent pieces to the card.  I popped the lovely little froggy with dimensionals.    



This card would be so cute to brighten someone's day.  



For my project, I created a Frog Prince using the Playful Pals Bundle.  

I stayed with my color combination and used a pencil to stamp the little circles on the base of the frog.  

This would be a perfect little treat holder or party favor for a birthday bash.  

I really had a lot of fun with this challenge.







I am so glad that you joined me this month and hope that you will continue to "HOP" on down the line.  


I hope you have enjoyed my little frogs!  Don't forget to participate in the giveaway!










Continue on the hop and increase your chances of winning by commenting on everyone's posts.
