Frogs and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails....

......that's what little boys are made of. I have several grandson birthdays to get ready for this summer, so I thought I should get a jump start on the cards. For this one, I ran some patterned paper from DCWV thru my Cuttlebug, using the Divine Swirls EF. I think it gives this card nice background texture. The googly-eyed frog is so cute. I know the boy who gets this card will enjoy them!

If I Had a Flower....

Good Morning! Life has been busy for me, but that is a good thing. School is almost over, so there will be an abundance of stamping time, I hope. :0)! Today's card is one I made for my MIL for Mother's Day. We both like blue alot and she always leans toward flowers. I have used most of my nicer flower images on cards for her, so this one came out a little different.
