Hoppy Birthday

Hello there.  How are ya today?  I am sitting here at 8pm watching it snow.  Now, I am sure you are asking me how I am watching it snow when it's dark outside.  Well, we have a big flood light on the corner of our house and it's very sensitive.  We just let the dog out, he triggered the light and I can see the snow falling.  We were only supposed to get a dusting.  Yeah, think they were wrong.

On to crafting.  The card today is for a 5 year old named Mikey whose family attends out church.  His mother, Megan, and I are friends and they just a had a new baby in Jun of last year.  Mike, the dad and husband, does wonderful photography.  Look him up on FB under Class A Photography.  You will be amazed, especially when you see the Christmas card that he made for this past year.

So, Mikey is 5 and a typical boy.  Like to wrestle with my husband on Sundays after church, likes to play outside and tries to catch every bug possible.  So, I thought this image would be just right for him.  It's from Dearie Dolls and this card is going to be entered into the Melonheadz Friends challenge which is Use a Digi.  It's their first challenge ever.  Let's make some noise for Melonheadz.  They have really cute images and some are free.  

I used two papers from American Crafts for the background.  I cut out the image using my cutter, then matted it on a piece of Olive Green and then a piece of Kraft.  I printed out the sentiment on the computer and cut it into little strips, inking them in Spanish Olive before adhering them to the right hand side of the focal image. I matted the focal image after inking it, onto two pieces of DP from American Crafts.   I colored the image with my colored pencils and OMS.  After adhering the image, I added three little frogs from the Recollections 3/D sticker collection.  

For the inside, I use the same DP as on the front and a piece of GP White for the journaling spot.  I hand wrote the sentiment and the thought bubbles.  The little fat frog is a Cricut die cut and I used my BIC markers and White Gel Pen for enhancement. 

I always forget to take the pictures before I write the sentiments.  I don't know I just do.  I hope you all liked this one.  I love little frogs and definitely love this card.  Have a wonderful day and God bless.
