A Sorry Frog and ShaZAM!!


First, it seems no matter how many calendars I have posted birthdays on, whether paper or computerized calendars, I still forget somebody's birthday (usually just forget to send it out on time). *sigh* So this cute frog really fit the bill when I saw it on Rubbernecker's site. Although I haven't purchased it yet, I was thrilled to have received it from a few gracious ladies on SCS in the WishRAK group. Thanks, girls!! :)

I used the following:
CS: certainly celery, regal rose, blush blossom and white
Ink: Permanent black
Tools: Prismacolor pencils, OMS, CE and yellow microbeads for the centers of the flowers, pop dots to raise the frog of the frog and flowers up, small oval punch for the sentiment, sheer ribbon with satin edge, and certainly celery grosgrain ribbon to accent a bit.

On the inside it says "Sorry . . . I 'frog'ot your birthday. Have a Hoppy One!"



So today, I thought I would play along with Rubbernecker's weekly challenge found here on Shelly's blog and on Jeanne's blog You can play along too for a chance to win a $10 gift certificate for Rubbernecker. :)
Thanks for a GREAT challenge, ladies.

Super super super cute card! I always forget, too. No, I always remember sometime during the week but the card/present is always late. :)

Oh Kel, this is marvelous! Your coloring and details are perfect. I am sure the recipient will love to receive this a tad late. (catch that pun?) Yes, you post your link on Jeannes blog to be entered in the monthly drawing and on the other blogs for those offering blog candy each week.

Great card, Kelly! Your coloring is awesome and the 3-d effect with the flowers is a technique I definitely want to try.

Fun photos of the show, too!

Cute card! Great job with Jessica's Shazam tutorial. I couldn't get it to work right for me. Of course I'm a little impatient lately.

Kelly, I love your card!! The flowers are amazing and their centers look awesome!! And, your cute late birthday sentiment is too cute as well! I've recently tried to do that multi layer look and find it is a lot of work!! You make it look simple!! :-)

KEL, THIS IS JUST THE CUTEST CARD! YOU CAN REALLY SEE HOW MUCH TIME & WORK YOU HAVE PUT INTO CREATING THIS AWESOME CARD.

Hi Kelly! Super cute froggy card, even if it IS late! ;) Seems everyone is too modest to mention their birthday ahead of time--it sure would be nice though if everyone had their day/month posted at the top of all their blogs, wouldn't it?? =) That sure would help ME!! lol. Oh, and cute alpaca too! Tfs, HUGS!!
