Kissing the Frog

jbe_jbe039_tbuOk, I’ll admit it. I have a thing for frogs. Frogs and pigs – I just think they are adorable. So when I spied this Imaginisce image, it had to be mine! Ain’t he cute?And I have been cranking the square cards out lately – what is up with that? Well, this week it is because the Jacksonbelle challenge is a square sketch. So, I’ll place the blame over there, lol! Seriously, though – I really am digging on them! I just need to find a place for envies. Where do y’all get your square envies from (other than SU)? Anyway, moving on, lol….

jbe039The awesome dp I used came from Jacksonbelle’s store too. It is by Fancy Pants, from their About a Boy line. How great are the colors? I think we all know about my obsession with Fancy Pants, lol. I colored my little cutie using some new Prismacolor markers I picked up on clearance at Office Depot this weekend. They were going out of business, so I figured for 40% off, why not try a set of 24?he’s popped up on dimensionals, and the frog underneath him is colored a darker green using Copics. In the corners of my main panel I used Distress Stickles in Orange Marmalade to make little dots. And the brads in the top corner came from who on earth knows where – I didn’t even know I had them!

I’m pretty sure I totally cheated with this skech by using my ribbon to divide up my sections, rather than having 4 separate panels. But oh well – I’ll just be a cheater! At least my ribbon matches my card base, so it isn’t too obvious! Be sure and stop by Jacksonbelle’s store – check this out:

Our First Guest Twinklette!

tgf_mttsc9_tbuThis week, fro the very first time, we have a guest “Twinklette”! Instead of Miss Madelynn drawing our sketch for us, the very talented Miss Piper did. Piper is Heather Schlatter’s daughter – and man can this girl draw a sketch!! Whew! I never should have left it for the last minute! I already had this Alice Anya digi image from The Greeting Farm colored, and have been dying to use her. SO thi seemed like a good opportunity! I’ll be honest – all of the specialized corners were more than my poor brain could take late on a Monday night, so I did some creative adapting – hope that is ok Piper!


My card base is Bordering Blue. My next panel is Confetti Cream, which I also used for Alice, and the cross panels. I dug out some Prima’s I had that matched the DCWV Once Upon a Time paper perfectly and added those to the corners once I had run all my small panels through the Cuttlebug. I felt like my card was busy enough, so for the added embellies I just put simple little silver dew drops, to echo the brads that center the flowers. This was lots of fun Piper – thanks so much for really challenging me this week! I love being part of the Twinkling Tuesdays group – it is so much fun! Thanks again to Jess and Madelyn – the masterminds behind the whole thing!
