Greetings friends, so glad you stopped by! Here's the link to the post with a PICTURE of me (that's unheard of)! LOL
I was recently chosen for The Stamping Boutique Design Team - I cannot wait to play with their images. I chose this froggy (Pocket Patootie image - don't you LOVE that name?) right off the bat to make a b-day card for my boss; the inside says "see, you made it another year without croaking!" - LOL! I've worked with my boss for 6-7 years (I've lost track), we have a great working relationship - and I love his wife too; she's the best!!
However, I KNEW the card would ultimately end up in the trash (urgh, sinking feeling in my stomach) so I kept it extremely simple. Is that bad - anyone else out there do that? Not put all your 'bellies into it because you KNOW it's headed to File 13??
Anyway, I stamped the image and colored it with watercolor pencils & odorless mineral spirits, used a gel pen for the lures on his hat and then drew the border and stitch marks.
Quick, simple and I'm not devastated that I have all these ribbon, twine, buttons, etc. if it does find it's way to File 13! LOL
Thanks for stopping by; I appreciate you taking the time to visit! Hugs,, ~M.
