You are my Hoppy place

Hey everybody! I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend! We traveled this past Friday for Ed to have a melanoma removed from his left forehead. The surgeon had to take a skin graft from his right neck, and he is doing well, but the hardest part is keeping him still! We’ve had a bit more snow over the past couple days too, so that makes for nice cozy days indoors. ;) Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I’ve stopped in this morning to share yet another sample I created for the Prickley Pear Stamps new release. This sweet card features Ramona from the new Frog Pals Spinach and Ramona stamp set along with the coordinating Frog dies! OMGoodness, these frogs are so stinkin’ cute, I can’t stand it! I’ve really enjoyed creating little scenes with this stamp set.

I cut a standard A2 size landscape top-folding card base from CutCardStock Basis 110# White cardstock along with layering panels from CutCardStock Basis 80# White cardstock and CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Azalea. Using the Frog Pals Spinach and Ramona stamp set, I stamped the background in Catherine Pooler Midnight ink on the white cardstock panel, colored it with alcohol markers, and adhered it to the azalea panel. I stamped Ramona on a scrap piece of white cardstock and colored her with alcohol markers as well, cut her with the coordinating Frog dies, and adhered her to the card front on dimensional foam pads. I stamped the sentiment on another scrap piece of white cardstock and cut it at an angle with a My Favorite Things Stitched Square STAX Die-namics die for a little interest.

I cut the inside panel from CutCardStock Basis 80# White cardstock, stamped the sentiment and a lily pad in Catherine Pooler Midnight ink, and layered the panel on CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Azalea.

And one more look… isn’t she just the cutest little frog ever?! I’ve totally enjoyed playing with these stamps and dies!
