I bought myself a new die this past weekend so of course I had to use it. The die is reeds and cattails. We used to have some cattails growing near the creek (not crick) when we lived in Ohio. My dad, another crafty person, once cut some down and put paraffin over them to seal them. That way we could enjoy them all year round in the house.
Playground Pals. All the die cuts were made out scrap paper, the dotted piece was another scrap, and the cool puffy butterfly was a present from Darnell. I mentioned before that I don't consider quarter sheets of designer paper to be snippets but this was in my "to use up" stash, as was the card base (which matched my scraps!!). So I got to use up lots of bits and pieces to make this card. The inside greeting says "You're toadilly awesome" and you are!
The Fine Print: Frog stamp by Annticipations, large scallop punch by EK Success, oval dies by Spellbinders, cattail and reed die by Cheery Lynn, colored with Copics. I might not be spelling 'toadilly' the same way they did on the stamp, but you get the idea.
