Happy Tuesday everyone!
Well we are house full of sickies. I am starting to feel better, I think mine is just allergies, but poor Jason and Izzy have colds. Izzy had a bad fever yesterday and was pretty grouchy but her fever has broken and now she is just exhausted. Poor baby. Jason has aches and a sore throat so he might be staying home tomorrow if he isn't better! Aww the role of a mom never ends! LOL!
Izzy did feel well enough yesterday to go to her first ever gymnastics class!! She had so much fun! I was really worried because she is usually super shy around other kids but she got along really well with them and even cried at the end when we had to leave! Of course now we have to work on leaving won't change just because you cry! LOL! She did walk on the balance beam and even stayed on. I was so surprised. Of course it is only an inch and a half off the floor and made out of thick foam but beggars can't be choosers right! The best thing was that they get little bee stamps on their hands when the class is over! Can I tell you how excited Izzy was! Now all she wants to do is go to gymnastics. Try explaining to a two year old that gymnastics is only once a week! LOL!
So today is Tuesday and you know what that means it is Twinkling Tuesday!! Miss Madelynn is such a great big sister, that she has graciously stepped aside this week to allow her brother Nick to issue our challenge! He had quite a fun one in store for us, Frogs!!!! You must use frogs (or any other critter) on your card. I guess that Nick adores anything frogs and wanted to see tons of cards made with them. So this week I brought out my trusty Greeting Farm images and whipped up a little something for him!
What do you think? Aren't the eyes on the frog too cute and the adorable way he is smiling just cracks me up! Love it!!! I started this card by first stamping the frog and fish from Down By The Pond by The Greeting Farm on white card stock and colored them in using my copics. Following a Mojo Monday sketch from a couple of weeks ago, I then tore strips of blue paper and adhered them to a base of white to create water. I did the same thing again on another piece, cut it out with my nesties and placed my fish on top. I mounted them on blue and green card stock to give them some depth. For my frog, I cut out a rock shape using some DP from K and Company, mounted it on some more K and Co. DP and placed my frog on top. To finish the layers of the card, I followed the sketch, layering on blue and green card stock along with the rest of the DP from K and Co. I tied a bow across the cloud paper using brown ribbon and added three green brads down the side. To complete the card I simply went out into the yard, picked up a tiny stick and tied on a little fish button so that it would look like he was fishing. The sentiment I stamped from Down By The Pond, just to add a little character. I hope Nick likes it!
Now it is time for you to participate! All you need to do is leave a comment on Madelynn's blog and type in the keyword MTTSC20 when uploading to SCS or PCP. Cassie is this week's featured stamper and her creation will amaze you as will all the other awesomely talented girls on the DT!
