Leap Year- Photo Week

DSC_0069

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’

Now you might be wondering how my card fits into our “Word Week” Congratulations!  Well about a month ago my son Graduated again with a Masters in Design Management from Savannah College of Art and Design and I made the above card for him.  If you do not have small children at home, or if you are not a kid yourself, you may not know who this character is.  His name is Toothless and he is from the movie and book, How To Train Your Dragon. If you have not seen it, you need to, it is absolutely one of my families favorites.  My son is a HUGE fan of this movie and I nearly squealed when I came across this card on Pinterst months before!  NO I CAN NOT TAKE CREDIT FOR THIS DESIGN! You will find that HERE! Her name is Jill Prescott!  Thanks so much JILL!!! I so appreciate you helping me make this moment so special for my family!  I knew right away when Tyler saw this card that he would love it and that it would bring him to tears.  The pics are a little fuzzy, but I think they say it all!  If you look very closely at the photo of the card….I sponged clouds in the background and also did all the edges of his body pieces with grey ink to help them stand out and give it some dimension.

Here is what I put on the inside of the card, and again if you saw the movie it will make a little bit more sense.

We also bought him a T-shirt of the character toothless as well. (Sadly -No Pic)

Now here are a few graduation photos too!  I apologize for those of you who have seen these on Facebook. The beautiful girl is Ty’s girlfriend Sandra.

Now, back to my card!

 Here are the supplies I used to make my card, along with a photo of the pieces before it was assembled.

 I had to improvise, as I didn’t have all of the same tools that the original designer (JILL) used.

My hubby had to get in on the action and he sculpted out of clay the Savannah College of Art and Design Mascot, which just so happens to be a ferocious BEE!  Yes, I said Bee! LOL

I asked him why the bee was making such a stank face and he said that it’s exactly like the logo, and sure enough he was right!  Pretty good huh?
