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.
For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord. Plans to prosper and not harm, to give you a hope and a future. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:11-13
