Hello My Friend

Hi Everyone,
Boy is it gloomy and rainy here. Well it's 59° outside right now but the temperature is expected to fall. I have just received 4 fabulous new sets from Sparkle N Sprinkle. Since it's so gloomy here(and maybe where you are too), I thought this card might cheer you up. Spring will be here in a few short months.I can't believe we are getting ready to hit the midway point for January already, where does the time go.

Here is one of the brand new stamp set, set 482 - Just Froggy.

Stamp Set 482 - Just Froggy

Isn't this new set really nice! I really like the gorgeous flower with that cute frog, and this set has home great sayings as well.

Here is my card design using stamps from this set.

I started out thinking that I was going to use green and mauve papers/card stock on this card, but, I pulled out a blank white card to do some sizing and then the flower just popped off the page so to speak. So I decided the white was the best choice. I added some glittery swirls for added pizazz, made a bow and added that little sentiment on a smaller tag. The background is embossed from a Spellbinders M-bossibilities folder. Love that embossing folder.

Cute, cute, cute Barbara!
I'm working on this set right now too (& I too thought the froggies looked great on white - like minds think alike!)
Love what you did with yours! Really does make you think of Spring!!
