Birthday Card with Frog

It has been quiet again on my blog because we were away camping!

But now I am back with a birthday card for Melba, one of the Cardologists whose birthday we celebrated last Thursday with a yummy Oreo Ice Cream Cake and much laughter! Melba loves frogs so I stamped and watercolored a NBUS stamp. I really thought he needed googly eyes and searched everywhere but it seems I don't have any. Is that even possible? Since I didn't have time to go out and buy some I ended up using small clear dew drops for the eyes. And I even used PP!

Stamps: SSS (sentiment), VAP! scrap (frog)

  5. That DP is a gorgeous background for your cute frog, Susanne ... and his dewdrop eyes are perfect ... even better than googly eyes! Did you see you won a GC at Hero Arts ... if not, check it out as the deadline is fast approaching! ( Hugs, Anita :)

  6. How cute is this?! I have a grandson who's all about frogs too. He'd really like this one. Love the bit of dp, and the dew drops too. Great design! Bev

  7. Love the frog and the little froggy splats that look like frog footprints! Great job improvising on the eyes! I thought they were googly eyes!

Melba must have really loved it IRL!! I'm definitely going to remember to use my dew drops for eyeballs! I hope you had a wonderful time camping as summer winds down!! Hugs, Darnell
