Twinkling Tuesday: Gotta Kiss a Few Frogs...

Good day, all!

Sorry this is a bit late. There is something very mysterious going on w/ Blogger and two posts I wrote for TWO different blogs have seemed to have been lost in cyberspace...grrrrrrrrrrrr.....

Anyway, I'm not going to let that get me down as I am planning on a GOOD day! My Dad is coming to spend the night with us so I'm VERY excited to see him after they moved to TN...he has to come back up on some business so I can't wait to see him.

Also, today's Twinkling Tuesday post really makes me smile as it's my darling son Nicky's FROG challenge! Nicky filled in for Madelynn this week and challenged us all to use a frog (or some other critter if you dont have a frog stamp!) on our cards this week.

I couldn't wait to ink up my Down by the Pond set from The Greeting Farm! I absolutely love this set and well, Nicky even moreso! I used this week's MOJO84 sketch to create this card and it was VERY well received by Nicky. He happens to have a bit of a cold and earache today so it was just the thing to brighten his day.

Be sure to check out the Twinkling Tuesday blog today as Cassie is the featured stamper and will be back shortly with an adorable creation. In the meantime, play along with us! Our keyword for SCS/PCP is MTTSC20 and be sure to stop by the TT blog to let us know you played along!

Oh Yes I forgot to tell you that that Webkin was Piper's first Webkin that we got from a store for Christmas in 07 we did not even know what Webkins were, Piper adores frogs and loves to play with real ones so this Frog is her favorite and she calls him Leapy!!!

Piper has all the Frog Webkins and wants to tell Nicky this was a wonderful challenge!!!
