Irish Frog

Here's another one of the Hambo new releases - isn't he funny?? This cute little Irish Frog was screaming out to me "use Liquid Applique on my beard, use Liquid Applique on my beard...!" - how can I possibly deny a request like that?? The sentiment is just a section of the new Irish You stamp, the full thing reads "Irish you a happy St. Patrick's Day!". Unfortunately I just couldn't make the whole thing fit on this card - I was trying to play along with the latest Mojo Monday sketch challenge. The colors are a little bit out there for a St. Patty's card I think - but they are today's color challenge on Splitcoast - Pumpkin Pie, Summer Sun & Kiwi Kiss/Old Olive. They turned out rather fun I think, even if they aren't what you'd expect! :-) As often happens, I went a little nutty with the polka dots! :-) Alrighty, I need to end this here - I am soooo tired tonight! Courtney was up for an hour & a half in the night last night, and once I got her back to sleep I foolishly stayed up and finished my Mardi Gras card and posted it, and then had an unfortunate 4:15am wake-up call from Carter this morning. Sooooo, I'm beat. So as much as the stamp room is calling me, I think I better be a responsible mommy and get some much-needed sleep! Who knows when/if anyone will wake up tonight! Happy Stampin' to you, and thanks for stopping by!

  1. Cute card! What a neat way to create a beard.

  2. Very cute! I'm very excited about this little froggie since you know I love frogs!

  3. This card put the BIGGEST smile on my face. HE'S SO CUTE :)

  4. Thanks so much for my happy mail! Every day I ask my hubby if I got anything in the mail. Saturday he said, "Yeah, something from Libby Hickson. Who's Libby?" I tried telling him it was Courtney's mom and the greatest card-making blogger ever, but he still didn't get it. I don't think I'll be able to get a card ready for this week's challenge (again), but I'll definitely be making a pink and orange cat card soon!

  5. OMG this is so adorable! Hope you got some rest! Much oohing and aahing over my box of blog candy on Monday night - they totally loved your card too! ~chris
