Frogging around with butterflies

Morning All
 here we are again on Sunday where does the time go?
Need to make cakes today and think I will do a roast for tea.

How about you.

I have to say that the weather makes me feel quite down and miserable
not able to get out into the garden, which is another passion for me.

But glad to say I am eating the fruit I grew last year so a little 
bit of summer is coming my way. 

Here is my card for today - made with the idea of an animal that Leaps :) 

My Mum loves frogs so thing this is one for her. 

I have used a new Frog stamp which I inked onto one of my 
shaving foam backgrounds. 

I did mount the original stamp onto foam to make it easier to use.

Used watercolours and pencils to colour in .....

Added sparkle pen to the table, tea pot and fly. 

Mounted onto to green card and coloured in a blank card
to keep to the same colour palette. 

Final step to add gems in the corners, ribbon words from Crafty Ribbons and the 
green bows were made from the stash from Crafty Ribbons too. 

Added  three shinny almost sapphire sparkle butterflies from Hunkydory and added glitter to them just to 
add that extra sparkle. 

Hope you can see the glitter and sparkle in this photo. ;) 

I would like to enter it for the following 

Thanks for popping in and 
look forward to hearing from you again 
God willing tomorrow. 

Cakes to make in between making cards - 
think I may get out my watercolour paints and try some 
painting again. 

Will show you some of my painting in another blog 

Well bye for now.... 

Have a good day
