Leap Year- Photo Week



Screen Shot 2016-01-10 at 2.25.20 PMHello Friends,  It’s the weekend and time for a new Photo challenge over at Just Us Girls!  Lisa, is our hostess and she was clever enough to think outside the box and come up with something in relation to Leap Year.  So as you can see the first thing that came to my mind was to incorporate a frog on my card.  I knew I didn’t have any frog stamps but knew if I hopped on over to Pinterest I would find some ideas of how to make one using Punches, and I did. My little froggy came to life by using the SU Owl Punch for his body and eyes and the Blossom Petals Punch for his hind legs.  The lily pad, his head, and center of his body were cut with my CM oval cutting system.  To make his googly eyes pop out I used some black pearls. The lily pad flower was also made from a MS punch. The stamped flowers and stems are also from SU. The clouds were sponged with a handmade stencil I created.

I would also like to thank our Guest Designer Pamellia for being with us this month and sharing her wonderful talents with us!

I hope you have a terrific weekend and if you find sometime to get crafty this week consider joining the girls and I over at JUGS!  Who knows you may become our next Guest Designer.  Nanc’
