Toadily Yours


Well would you believe it, 2 posts in 2 days - don't worry it won't last, as i have the physio tomorrow and a massage on Thursday.

For those of you, who are familiar with this stamp - you will realise that the toads are not swinging flowers around , but i wanted to make it into a boys card for a change, so i used star brads instead and my favourite boys papers Echo Park - Little Boy - to carry on the stars theme i've cut out some stars using my spellbinders nesties, embossed the plain paper and added a stars border.

Todays Card and Challenges :

Penny Black Friends - where Challenge No: 183 is 'CASE - IT' - I've gone for the stars and I've tried to stick to the red, white and blue theme
