A Happy Stampin' Day...

I got a wonderful surprise in the mail when I got home.....this fabulous card made by Danielle Kennedy at Wild Dragonfly Designs. I had commented a while ago on a wonderfully cute frog image she used on one of her cards she had posted on her blog. She then offered to send me some stamped images and they arrived in the mail today along with this card. I honestly don't know which to exclaim with excitement about first....So.... First: I love this card, the colours are so funky and so are the flowers. It's a perfect spring card in a city whose snow has finally stopped after two days. It really brightened my day.

Second...If you know me, you'll know that I'm telling the truth when I say that I squealed with delight when I saw the frog images Danielle sent. ( I have yet to grow up despite my age, much to the embarassment of my daughter and probably some of my friends.) There are four different poses and they're all great. I'm afraid to use them 'cause I don't want to muss them up....but I will use them....just wait and see!!!!!

Allison had a snow day today so the dear girl did her laundry, cleaned her room, and started packing to go to Disneyland, Therefore, I was able to stamp this evening. (A Happy Mom is a Happy House). This card is the combination of today's colour challenge (Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink, and Certainly Celery, last weeks "Ways to Use It" challenge where you had to add something acrylic on your card, and it's sort of, kind of, Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge.

I stamped the square button using Staz-On Ink and I separated the words on the stamp by covering up each line I didn't want inked with tape.

I've got to look up some airline information and then I'm heading back (hopefully) to my stampin' room.

I just joined and received my first two. My dh thinks I'm silly, but if I'm happy, he's happy, so ikwym sister! The kids are another story ;-)

Great little birdie card! I love the stamped button and the two panels each with a bird image. It's so cute!

Have fun with your frogs...I can't wait to see what you do with them!
