Froggy went a-courting!

I had a lovely few hours at the craft show in Manchester yesterday, catching up with Mei and stocking up on some desperately needed supplies, although I also ended up buying more desperately needed supplies that I didn't even know I desperately needed until I saw them LOL!

While travelling the world wide web a few days ago, I came across this quirky digi-stamp of a frog making a heart with his hands, as I love a bit of quirk, he hopped into my collection and was immediately coloured up and made into a card.

Digi-stamp - Carl I Love You - Scribbles Designs
Papers - Hello, I Love You digital scrap kit - The Digital Press
Tonic layering dies - Scalloped circles, Plain circles
Sentiment - computer generated
Sparkly heart - Meiflower

I decoupaged Carl so his hands, head and eyes stand out, here's a a photo from the side to try and show the layers.

I am entering my card into the following challenges

Allsorts - #297 - Love is all around
Artbymiran Challenge - #25 - Anything Goes
Chocolate, Coffee & Cards - #84 - Love is in the Air
Fussy and Fancy - #132 - It's All About Love
Kitty Bee Designs - #40 - Valentine/Love
Aud Sentiments Challenge - #124 Valentine or Love Sentiment
Creative Knockouts - #75 Hearts A Flutter (include a heart)

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look,
Colette xx

Definitely 'a bit of quirk' Colette... he's such a fab froggie... and you've made put just the right papers and design behind him! I LOVE your shading on him too.. wow!! And of course, I'll be singing your title (complete with the 'ah -hmmmmm' chorus) for the rest of the evening! I did chuckle yesterday at your 'Chrissy the Pink' thought!

Glad you were able to stock up on supplied... hope the show was good. Harrogate show is in March... but it's been going downhill just lately.... still, I may just have to DRAG myself there... LOL! Such a hardship!
