Go Kiss a Frog!

Hello everyone! When you see my card today you might think I've got my seasons mixed up. But I don't. My inspiration for this card is my little Sis (well, my only sis, but she's my fav!) She's been single for a while and looking to meet that really nice, special guy, but isn't having the best of luck.  But as gals, we know how that goes, right?  You have to kiss a lot of frogs along the way. So Sissy.. this is for you.... go kiss a frog!

This is an adorable image from Sassy Cheryl's ... so it just goes to show that this image isn't only for Halloween. As a card for my Sis, it was perfect for this week's challenge. Our hostess, Tracy, challenged us to use green, orange, black and glitter! Well, glitter just doesn't photograph very well, but it's there. I just find Sassy Cheryl's images so inspiring.



Isn't she cute.. and isn't that frog just the 'toad-i-est' (is that a word?). He looks like he partied too much last night... think I'm kidding... just check out those eyes!

I've gotten several emails that you guys are missing my take on obscure holidays and you love them... Yes, I've been very busy with team assignments, but that's no excuse.. so, let's get back into the swing of it. Today is "Everything is Right Day" - not to be confused with yesterday which was Everything Was Wrong Day.. No, I swear, I'm not making this up. Check it out for yourself.... just follow the links. So, if I have this right, anything I do today is just straight-up right!!
Thanks so much for stopping by.. I appreciate you and the comments that you leave. 'Til next time happy coloring and be safe in all you do.

Peggy, what a great take on this card. Love it!
And I'm sure she is your favorite sister since she's your only one. I'm in that same boat. :)
It's great when you can make a card that would otherwise be seasonal, fit your situation.
Great job!

Well, this is certainly right! She is adorable-your siste will love her and certainly knows all too well how many frogs are out there---but there are some Princes out there, too. Perhaps your little witch can cast the RIGHT spell and make her dreams come true! So glad I didn't post my witch as she isn't nearly as soft and sweet-a bit zany, and perhaps too dark for Everything is Right day! I so enjoyed talking with you last night-checked out your blog suggestion and then resurrected A Sentimental Soul to document my journey!
