Here are all the designers joining in the hop tonight featuring February's new stamp sets:

and Guest Designer Brenda Turner

As another Guest Designer for Theresa's "Hang in There"..
I have three cards for you...you've already seen so many...but this set is sooo cute that in this case "more" is good! right? 

This one has already been posted on STV because I made it for Selma's Blast from the Past Challenge which was "paper piecing"...I stamped three frogs and pieced them together...main cardstock is GinaK's new Creme de Menthe, then SU dp is matted onto GinaK's new Lemon Drop. Frogs are colored with Copics but my list that had what I used is lost somewhere in my crafting mess!!

this one is for those of you who want to make quicker cards! used nesties, dp and ribbon! the frog is very lightly colored with watercolor pencils (plain old ones from Staples) and used OMS...had intended to just adhere this frog to the center of the card and that was it!...but just couldnt do it ...so moved the frog over and added the ribbon! Had intended to stop there BUT cannot leave open spaces LOL...so added the little butterfly - almost put a sentiment there instead...but really wanted to just do an "all occasion" easy card.....I just can't stop "adding"...hopefully you can see that if I HAD just have centered the frog...it would have been fine! CAS are tough!

another card where I let the nesties do the work..did copic the raccoon with E35, E59! flowers were done with punches using scrap cardstock...dp is from Michaels on sale this week matted on black...Base cardstock is GinaK's Creme de menthe (really love it!)
This card used:
GKD stamps: Hang in There by Theresa, Lovely Labels by Nina, and sentiment from The Journey by Asela
Ink: SU's Hunter Green, Sage Shadow

Hope you enjoyed my cards! now let's go hop!!
Hugs to everyone,

I thoroughly enjoyed your cards!Now let's go hop? Is that a play on words with frog cards? Probably not... my mind just catches little things like that! LOL!

Wowza! Linda, these are fab! Love the three frogies and the ribbon on the second card is perfect! So cute to have the raccoon hugging the labels frame!

I just love how the eyes of the frog come out when you color them. So cute the way you placed the raccoon! I also like the pencil colored frog, thanks for sharing it.
