Get Well Card - Froggy


Here is a cute card. I love how it came together. This paper is from the sweet stack and I wish there was more of it. These are the kind of patterned papers that I like. Every time I make the frog from Create a Critter I think of my grandfather who passed 10 years ago. Gosh...10 years ago already. I miss the days that I spent with him growing up, all the laughs we shared and the fun times spending weekends at his house, and living with him when I was little. He had a frog collection. He actually suffered for 6 long years before he passed and so really it's already been over 16 years since I had those fun times with him, that is at least half my life. Boy that is sad. Anyways, I think of him often, and whenever I make the frogs they are for him :).

I love how the layers came together with this card. I added some stickles for an accent. Great sentiment too! Hope you enjoy.

The frog is adorable---and a wonderful way to hold warm emories of your grandfather near! I know he's just waiting to see you again! Stop by and see all the fun stuff coming up on One By One The Flamnigos Are Stealing My Sanity at http://karelj.blogspot.com when you have time!
