Twinkling Tuesday: You gotta kiss a few frogs...

...well, you know the rest!

Before i get to my Twinkling Tuesday card, though, I want to remind you all that TODAY IS THE LITTLE PAPER SHOP RELEASE Day!!! You can now order {Bound by the Heart} and {Blessings}. To see the stamps and for more info, visit the Little Paper Shop's blog. There is a full reveal of the set as well as a special announcement so check us OUT!
Also in exciting Little Paper Shop news, we welcome LORI TURNER as our March/April Guest Designer! Yay! Welcome Lori! You can read more about that at the LPS Blog, too and be sure to visit Lori's Blog!

Lots going on today, for sure! Today is also Twinkling Tuesday and we have a very special "Temporary Twinkie" Guest Challenger with us today, Ava Grace. Ava is Taylor's DD and she challenged us to QUITE the color combo:

WOWZA! I wasn't sure WHAT I was going to do w/ this one, as I'm not very partial to green. Well, ok, not THIS shade of green, LOL! I didn't even have it to be quite honest, so my good friend (and SU extraordinaire) Darla helped me out with that one! I mean, I had to deliver, as a VERY cute three year old is relying on me :) This was great, Ava Grace! I think we all can use a little forcing to "think out of the box" every now and again, right? Speaking of boxes, check out this cute little graphic that Jen drew...and in the spirit of St. Patty's Day! Cute!

My son couldn't have been happier when I pulled out my Rachelle Anne Miller Frog stamp from Stampavie! Aren't these little guys INSANELY cute?! I LOVE them! I have been waiting and wanting to use this stamp for SOME time and so it definitely paid off, as today was the day!
After coloring them in with my Copics, I added just a bit of sparkle to the flowers and heart and then put this card together using the Roses on Paper sketch from last week. Unfortunately, I was a BIT too late to enter, but my sweet bloggin' friend Rosette drew this sketch and I LOVE it! I will definitely be using it again!
Well, enjoy your Tuesday and be sure to take time to visit the TT blog as Kimmie is our featured stamper this week! You can also check out the rest of the wonderful "Twinklette's" blogs today too...they are:
