Toad-ily Thankful ... I am !

Wow, friends ... I can NOT believe Friday is already here ! It's been an incredibly busy week and there's more to follow so forgive me for not posting more regularly.

My card today is using this cutie from Penny Black called " Viva Diva" . I am not a frog loving gal after a very slimy experience in Hong Kong many years ago BUT I do love this image. I've colored " him" up with Copics as well as around his body. He's cut out and embossed with a circle Nestie, matted with a Kraft pinking circle Nestie and matted again with a black circle Nestie. The dp is by Bo Bunny , twill and button from JoAnn's and tiny prima's added with a dot of Stickles.

I'll be entering this in the Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge this week which is to use flowers.

This card goes out to a dear friend who spoiled me " terribly" for my birthday ! Yep, tomorrow is the day and I will be all of " 29 " ... well , ummm, you can multiply that by ... I'm looking forward to having my college boys home , visiting and eating some sumptious meals together.

Thanks so much for stopping by ! Let me know you've been here ... Have a wonderful weekend, and I'll be back next week with another post.

BIG hugs !
