Hippy Hoppity Blog Hop Frog


This is my first Blog Hop ....... Yeah ...... so excited!!!

The challenge for this month is "The Total Package". As Emeril would say "Kick it up a notch"

My card came out of the blue when I was reading the new "Card Creations" magazine. When I saw the sentiment on the frog card I almost broke my neck getting to my craft space. I have had this cute Cloud 9 paper for 2 years. I knew how I wanted to do the card and it came together like I had been planning it forever. Love this Frog .......... and it was the first time to use my "floral frog" I did not go over the top with the envelope but I think it is just enough to make it a "Total Package"

Thanks for looking ♥

Ink: Dark Chocolate

What fun frog paper! 2 years is a long time to hang onto it!!! LOL! I love the envelope, too. It's a great finishing touch that will still be very easy to mail!

Very, very cute- the inside sentiment actually made me laugh right out loud.
P.S. Don't feel bad, I'm hanging on to that SAME series of papers and embellies for "just the right moment".
