Many Thanks!

I sure do make a lot of Thank You cards...and it's because I'm so very thankful for many things in my life and the people I've come in contact with.  And I like to let them know THANKS in my very special creative way. 

I bought this 'jug' of small froggy stamps and sentiments a while back on clearance at Joann's.  They were just the cutest.  Then when I got home, it just seemed like the stamps were so small, how possibly could I make a great card using themm so I put them away on a shelf.  Then, just the other day, I was re-organizing, and picked up this jug of stamps and decided to revisit the idea of using them on a card. 

The card size is 4.25x5.5 white card stock.  I found some 'green froggy paper', as I call's more like moss green.  Embossed it using the circles folder.  It looked like lilly pads or the bubbles that come up in the moss layered pond.  Then used some scrap paper, I'm trying to get that box of scrap paper used up (then I can go buy more tee hee) made 3.25x3.25 black square and a 3x3 white square

I stitched with black jelly roll pen.  I used black Enamel Accents to DOT the eyes.  I first tried to use some of my markers to color in the frog, but didn't look right, so I broke out the colored pencils and liked it much better.  Then I added the "leap" corkscrew and the "many thanks" sentiment. 

There you have it!  Super simple cutie pa-too-tie card.   I also had different sizes of black n white blocks and also made a few of these sizes.

I enjoyed playing with these smaller you'll probably see more "froggies" hopping along my blog again soon.
Have a great day!  Chao for now! --C
