Oh Hoppy Day!

Edited again: Last nite when I was trying to get this post together Blogger went down and I'm just now noticing part of what I had written is gone. Most of it wasn't that important, but this card was inspired by the layout of Cambria's card on her blog. I wanted to be sure to give her credit for the layout.
Edited: Okay this is weird, the post at 6 this morning didn't show the card!! Here it is.
I am very excited to show you yet another new set from Storage Units, Ink & More. This one is called Leap Frog. Since I have two boys, I just had to have this set.
I used two images from this set to make this card. I actually stamped a whole sheet (8.5" x 11") with one frog using SU!'s Basic Grey ink to make my own background paper. I used orange, green and brown
Core'dinations cardstock for the solid color accents. This cardstock is soooo cool! It has a "core", but it's not white like alot of other companies. This cardstock has a COLORED core that is a different shade of the cardstock. It also has a texture like Bazzill making it a really nice quality. You can see from my card the lighter core color in the brown piece that I tore. This cardstock can also be sanded to show the core color which I also did with all 3 colors.
I used prismacolor pencils and gamsol to color my images. Added some stitching, ribbon and computer generated saying to finish it off.
Would you like a chance to win this set? Just leave a comment here to en
ter to win. I will draw a name sometime Thursday night after I pick up my youngest son from camp.

  1. I sure could use this sweet stamp set. I can always use a set like this, for the men in my life. I have trouble making any male cards. Thanks for a chance.

  14. Could those frogs BE any cuter?!?! I think with a little set of "googly eyes" glued on, I'd have all my "little boy" cards for the year done in a FLASH! Super cute "background paper"!

  53. Oh, Debbie! This is SO SO SO SO CUTE! I came here yesterday to see it...but forgot to leave a comment because I got side tracked by the fact that your blog name no longer had the word Snickerdoodle in it....mmmmmm....I love Snickerdoodles! So then I started thinking I should bake some Snickerdoodles....but then I went into my kitchen and its a mess...lol...and I didn't want to add to the mess...I also checked my shortening and was wondering how long shortening is good for if it is unopened....? LOL! So I am back today to tell you how stinkin' cute I think this card is!
