LAST ONE. I promise.

So this is the last non-Christmas, Christmas card post, I PROMISE. Well, don't hold me to that.

This is more double sided Christmas paper from Stampin Up last year. If you can believe it, it has pointsettias on the other side of it. I won it as a prize at a stamping retreat I went to with my stamping sisters last year. Funny that I should be playing with it in August, a YEAR later. I was thinking I should cut back on my patterned paper purchases. HAAAAAAAAA! THAT'S FUNNY. IT'LL NEVER HAPPEN.


Ok, so on to the froggies. This is one of those sets that I get a ton of use out of, because it combines images with cute sayings that match, like "Hoppy Birthday" and "Sorry I frogot". I'm heading for our yearly stamping retreat again this Wednesday, so I had bottles of glitter spread out on my stamp table. My process is this: if it's sitting out in front of me, I slap it on the card. So these cards were inspired by my messy stamp table, really.

I have a hard time using colored glitter on my cards, I find that I always grab for the white dazzling diamonds glitter first. So I decided to run a line across the cards with a liquid glue pen and glitter up the cards with colored glitter. These are definitely sparklier in person. Sparklier is a word, I'm sure of it.





These cards seem sort of lame to me, which is pretty much par because I'm having sort of a lame night. You know, the kind of night where you mistakenly wash your bathtowels with the cat's blanket. I'm going to tell my guests that I only buy ANGORA towels. We'll see if they buy it. Have a great night everyone, and remember, always separate towels from the cat's blanket.

Cute little frog cards. Love the colors. I'm chuckling over the cat's blanket story. Good thing I'm not visiting - allergic to cats and your towels. Have a good night. :)

Lame you say? I LOVE them! But I'm such a blue/green freak. What a great idea to do the line of glitter. I have a bunch of old,retired colored glitters from SU! Hmmmm.
