Toad-ally Awesome!

Howdy!  It's good to be home...again!
I spent a few days wearing my grandma hat in Salt Lake City - what a beautiful place!
We stayed at the Grand America Hotel, and it's among the most impressive places I've ever stayed!

Do ya'll know that in all of my years of stamping, I've never owned a set with frogs? It's true! So...when I saw this adorable set pop up over at My Favorite Things, I sorta 'needed' it.

Here's what I made:



This photo shows the card and envelope

And here's the envelope by itself

Squeal, what fun this was! I love these sweet little critters!
They were so easy to paper piece with some scraps of green gingham paper.

I'm entering this card in these challenges:
Stamped Blessings - Anything goes + a stamp
Crafting with an attitude - Anything Goes

Hope you have a great week ahead of you!

Hugs and smiles,

What a fun card! I have only one frog stamp (it's an old wooden stamp from Stampin' Up, I think). I've been looking at frog stamps lately, though. Your card is an inspiration to look a little harder. I'd like to make some of that cuteness, too!

Oh I think your frogs are too cute - perfect for a play day project. and yes to save my sanity we are going to have to have a play date - even if you have to help me a LOT after my surgery. Love the envelope you created as well - makes the card that much more special.
