Frogs.

Some people think they're cute. Not me!

I have a frog story that would scare the best frog lover.  It happened while we lived in Hawaii over 16 years ago. While I was raking leaves under a huge mango tree the rake hit what I thought was a rock.  I tugged at it a bit more and out sprawled this HUGE frog. I mean HUGE!  The body, without its legs, was at least the size of a dinner plate.  When it opened up to jump I was terrified.  Needless to say a neighbor came to my rescue – all 105 lbs. of her!  

In light of my 'frog fear' it might seem strange that I love this image from the "You're Sublime" stamp set.  I think the 'eyes' got me…they're so sweet.

  If you like the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set you're gonna love this background stamp called Watercolor Wash.  I stamped the image in Garden Green ink onto Garden Green paper.  I colored the frog in with Garden Green and Wild Wasabi markers and used the Pool Party marker under him so he didn't appear to be 'floating'.  Floating frogs – no way!  It's bad enough they hop!

 Here are the cutting dimensions:

  • Garden Green cardstock base is cut 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"
  • Whisper White cardstock for the image is cut 2 1/2" x 2 1/2"
  • Wild Wasabi cardstock layer is cut 2 5/8" x 2 5/8"
  • Basic Black cardstock layer is cut 3" x 3"
  • I cut 8" of Pool Party Cotton Ribbon for the bow

When we moved to Florida I had no idea that frogs would be abundant. The good news is that most of them are really small.  BUT, I have been known to scream for help while approaching the front door because a frog has conveniently perched himself near the door knob!  

If you've got a frog story, I'd love to hear it!  Leave me a comment.
