Toadily cool

Monday September 13, 2010

I think green is the color of today. 
The other Sunday when my husband brought the Sunday paper into the house all of a sudden a frog jumped out.  He must have been hiding in the rolled up paper in the mailbox soaking in the sun.  We quickly caught him and relocated him back outside before our four curious cats decided to check him out.  Then a few days later when I went to pick up the paper, again he was inside, but this time he hopped on my arm scaring me.  This digital image form Some Odd Girl of Tobie and Buddy reminds me of how my husband looked taking the frog back outside (and our grass has lots of shade so we have some mushrooms at times also).  I plan to enter this in the challenge for this week which is to have three images.  These are the images that I won from last weeks sketch.
Markers: Copics
Die-namics: Grass, My Favorite Things
Patterned Paper: We Are Memory Keepers
Ribbon: Michael's
Punch: EK Success 1 1/2 ", Fiskars Scallop
Border Edge: Fiskars

I also did a card that I plan to submit for the Pixie Dust Studio Challenge which is "In between the Newsprint" challenge.  It is to have a black and white plus one additional color.  I thought that would be perfect with their digital stamp of Greta the Green.  I had fun using every shade of my green Copic markers for this card.

Stamp: Season's Greetings, Hero Arts
Ink: Memento
Core-dinations black glitter
Nestibilities: Small petite Oval
Punch: 1 1/4" & 1 1/2" EK Success
Border Punch: EK Success
Flowers: Prima
Ribbon: Michaels
Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye Lush
Cardstock: Bazzil
