A toad-ily hoppy birthday

I have fallen in love with little Max from Pink Gem designs big time - he reminds me so much of my grandson Ben who would be toad-ily delighted with splashing in puddles and catching frogs so I had to use this stamp for this weeks A Spoonful of Sugar challenge. Tina46 is this weeks guest designer and what a fabulous sketch she has made for us. Her work is truly stunning too.

pink-gem-max-with-frog

I tinkered with the verse a little lol.
pink-gem-max-frog-insideRecipe:
Max with frog from Pink Gem Designs has been coloured with Distress Inks and Twinkling H2O's, with a bit of Stickles added on the water.
The papers are from K & Co - love this pad it's so perfect for little boys cards
I used a Martha Stewart punch for the border under the ribbon, it reminds me of bubbles which worked out great for the water theme going on here.
The Zooms are from Stamp Galaxy, the button from a huge grab bag off Ebay and the blue star is cut with a sizzix die.
The sentiments are computer generated.

Thanks for looking,

  12. A fantastic card Bev! Max is gorgeous, your colouring is so beautiful and your 'tinkering' with the sentiment really made me laugh. The K & Co paper is gorgeous and I love the MS punched border. I visited Cindy's blog earler and she'd made a card for your FS day, she said some lovely things about you Sweetie and if you haven't had a chance to visit her I thought you might like to see what she said.

  49. Just beautiful Bev. That image is so typical of a boy ... although it could also have been typical of me as I grew up quite tom boyish on a farm and use to catch loads of frogs, tadpoles and crabs in the farm dams. Love the colours. Oh yes the pic of Amy with that gigantic carrot in the sidebar is just too precious. Hugs from Desire
