Hello everyone,

I hope you have been enjoying the sunshine today if your in the UK, it is actually a typical June's summer day today ( too hot really, but shouldn't complain :). Please see the end of this post for the list of challenges I'm entering this card into.

Well wasn't I a brave little crafter today! I decided this card must not have kraft card stock, as I have used it on most of my previous cards. But I ended up being especially brave and using acetate!

The ticket is a free digi stamp from Marit, she has loads of free digis go over and check them out, she also makes the most amazing cards. I just love this little image, it is such fun to colour this little fellows in and look at his cute little frog!

I'm quite pleased with the little puddle he is stood in, I drew it and then cut it out by hand. I have used one of my Tim Holtz distressing ink pads to ink the edge of it :)

Please leave a comment to let me know what you think.
