Loved up froggy and another calendar page

Oh dear, I can't believe it's Friday evening already, where did that week go?!!  Mind you, I'd no idea what actual day of the week it was for most of the time ;)   I made it to the sales ... bought a new suitcase (just need a holiday to go with it LOL) and some swanky new curtains and cushions.  Oh, and a new doggy bed for Ruby, so bedtime tonight could be interesting!

This one uses another oldie Penny Black stamp - coloured with watercolour pencils and sparkle added to the lily pad and clear gloss to the little heart.  I couldn't get a decent pic this one looks better in real life - the background on the base is splattered with green paint to match my froggy.  Silver mirror card embossed with an old XO folder, might be Sizzix I'm not sure.

I haven't shared my last calendar page for my friend's Christmas pressie.
I bought this cute (rabbit?) from Stamping Bella recently, isn't she a cutie.  The sentiment says 'tea', but I masked it out and wrote in 'coffee' as she doesn't drink tea.  **Gasp** I couldn't get through the day without it LOL  I also added in a couple of Eat Cake Graphics stamps - Daisy Mouse and Firefly.


  1. Your froggie and tea-drinking bunny queen are so cute. It's nice to look at cards that feature springtime scenes when it's below zero here and lots of snow outside. Glad you made it to some sales. Will ruby have a hard time adjusting to her new bed?

  2. This is such an adorable card. I love how you incorporated silver into your card and the frog is simply fantastic. Thanks for playing along with us at AAA Cards!

  3. Gorgeous coloring Lynne on that sweet frog. I love your silver adornments. What a fun calendar page. Makes me smile.
