Pucker Up + More

Happy Monday Scrappy Friends. I hope you had a good weekend and enjoyed it with a nice bbq (like I did) or a good craft-a-thon (like I should have)  lol. I have several things on my plate right now and I should have taken some time to take care of them but the sunshine was too good to pass up. The only thing that made me feel bummed was the fact that CHA is being held 20 minutes away from me and I cant go. Grrrrr..... 

Now onto my Valentine project....  I wanted to play with the Frog theme for this V-Day project. I mean, who hasn't had their fare share of "frogs". So I created them with my oldest niece and sister in mind. I know they will get a chuckle out of these.

Picture 1: Valentine Day Project: Card & Chocolate Mini Box

Picture 2: Size 5 inches
Prismacolor Pencils

Picture 3: For my card, I used Froggie Thoughts from Tiddly Inks. This is a really cute set that brings the frog and some cute sentiments - such as the one I used: "The Things We Do For Love", don't you just love this sentiment?

I will be playing with Tiddly Inks Challenge - Quote Me. Use a favorite or special quote. The quote/sentiment I used I think is soo true for all of us. What don't we do for love?

Picture 4: Sweethearts Cart
Martha Stewart Punches

For my chocolate mini box I used the cutie frog from the Sweethearts cartridge. However, I think I made this poor little fella look like he was put through the ringer. I used PKS Everyday Faces (slightly altered) but when my alteration went awry, I decided to give him an eye patch. lol. Eh, I think he still looks cute with it. But I couldn't stop at the eye patch, so I decided to give the poor guy some freckles/frog spots. However, I went a little bizerk with the black pen and he ended completely covered with them. But I like it. It turned out to be one of those accidental good things :) :D. Handmade Sentiment Used, "Pucker Up Baby" (lol)

I'll be playing with:
Scrappy Moms Terrific Tuesdays - Sweethearts
Peachy Keen Stamps (Let's Face It Friday) - X's and O's
Wacky Wednesday - Brown, Green and Pink (Used for both items)

Thanks for stopping by/commenting!!
