Happy Birthday!

Hi All...I'm still alive! I have a quick Birthday card to show you. I made it for a fella with a great sense of humor. Although I kept it simple by not having a background layer...I was inspired by last weeks 182 Mojo Sketch.

I am posting the inside as well so you can read the fun poem. The Cute stamps are both from High Hopes. The sentiment is from Our Craft Lounge.

The fabulous baker's twine used on this card I purchased from Monika at M.A.D Stamper. (great service and price!!)

To color the froggy I used copics for base only...prismacolor pencils (oms)..and h20's on top.

Ink - Memento black, bashful blue, vintage photo. Paper - GP, SU, assorted scraps. Accessories - baker's twine, brown bauble, stitching. The little tag I cut with my Cuttlebug.

So much for Spring here...all we have been getting is snow, snow and more snow. We're for casted to have a lovely summer though.... Sounds like even the weather man has given up on spring here..lol.

Happy Spring Everyone!!..and Thank you so much for your lovely comments!!
