Frog Wars Side Step Card

A spoof  on Star Wars side step card.  I took the photos before the card was finished.  After taking the photos I lightened the glow around the light saber and added clear sparkle glitter to it, but you will have to use your imagination since I gave the card away before taking another photo.

Stamps are the Frog Wars set from Wild Frog Creations Rubber Stamps.  Took two photos cuz the first did not show the Hans Solo frog's legs very well.  It's actually cuter in person, especially since I fixed the light saber.  For a kid's birthday.

Here it  is from a different angle, showing more of the steps:

I really do appreciate all your visits and comments!

Red and White Color Challenge

I finally  have my computer back after doing without for a week.  Then when I get back online I can read emails but NOT send emails. Great. Finally figured it out, had nothing to do with the computer.  My server changed the port for outgoing mail.  Would have been nice of them to notify users of that fact.  Instead I had to dig the info off their website.  Sigh . . .enough ranting.

First thing I noticed on catching up reading blogs was the challenge over at Vicki's Cheerful Stamppad.  Red and White.  No time to enter this, I have taxes to do!  But wait!  What's that she's got for a prize?!?  Ooooh, aaaaahhhhhhhh, *drool* they look like Alice stamps!  From Scroll Works!!  AAARRRRGH!  I had to stamp something, I need these stamps!  Yeah right, I could buy them, but I have thousands already, and it's not as much fun as entering a contest.

So here is what I stamped for Vicki's contest.  In a rush (as usual) I closed my eyes, turned around and picked up the first stamp from the shelf my fingers landed on.  Oh crap, a daisy, well that doesn't go with a red and white theme. Hmmmm, with a little imagination a daisy could be red.  They do dye them pink, blue and other colors for bouquets in florists shops.  So I ran with it.  Here it is.

Daisy was colored with watercolor pencils.  Added glitter to the center and the leaf.  Keeping my fingers crossed that I win the stamps!  Now to finish catching up on my reading.  The taxes will wait.

Easel Card Valentine

I will be wuithout a computer soon for about a week, so will be behind in my reading.  I may be able to check in daily at the library, if it ever warms up enough that I want to go out again after work.  Anyway  . . . short post, getting done quickly.

Another Valentine - Easel Card.

Here is the front of the easel card and below that the card opened up.

Image used is the Kewpie Doll stamp from Wild Frog Creations Rubber Stamps

I got a little teensy bit carried away when adding the flowers to the bottom of the card. It looks like a memorial in a cemetery to me, lol.

I am entering this card into the following challenges (click the link to go directly to the challenge pages):
