Molted Frog! » Simple By Design

Hello everyone! as I type this post it is currently New Years Eve here in Australia…Darryl and I will be having a very quiet night tonight and possibly will not even see the new year in…I think the bed will be much more enjoyable..LOL…yes, boring couple are we not…LOL.

I am currently on a 3 day break and going to enjoy the most of it…about to head into the craft room after lunch and see whether the mojo has returned.

After finishing a long 9hr shift yesterday at work I really was not up to typing up a post, so hence I am here today to share my Molted Frog for Jane’s Doodles…I really think I must have been drunk when I coloured this frog in..shocking attempt and I apologise, not quite sure what I was trying to achieve, so if you can look past that, I think the rest of the card is not too bad.

Using lots of green, I took one of the green papers from the Foliage layering paper, trimmed to size and stamped with soft green shadow ink the Speckled Background stamp, over the entire trimmed piece, sewing around the outer edge twice. Trimming two smaller strips of the foliage paper, adhering together and then adhering to the main card stock. Trimming down some white card stock to form a tag, I stamped the Houndstooth stamp that was inked with Grass ink, adding Peapod twine to the top of the tag. Stamping the frog onto more white card stock and colouring him in (that was when I think I must have been drunk..LOL) trimming around him and adding him to the tag along with a stamped sentiment, adhering all this to the green card stock. Completing the card by adding the main section to a trimmed white card.

Be sure to check out the Jane’s Doodles Shop, there has been some more stamps added to the store..super cute I might add….

Before I leave you all, I just wanted to wish everyone a very Happy New Year, thank you to everyone that has passed on by and left amazing and sweet comments this past year…it has been an amazing year and I look forward to an even better 2012.

Hugs to you all!
