DO you DARE to get Colorful?

I do! I do!

Well, truth be told I'm probably not up for much as you read this because I will have had a wisdom tooth pulled as of yesterday afternoon...and unfortunately to pull the tooth they had to remove a little piece of jawbone...yeah, NOT happy can I tell you? But, thank heavens for auto-post right? hahaha...yeah, I'm kind of a barrel of nerves right now but hopefully I am DONE with it all by the time you land on my happy lil' blog today ;) Thanks to everyone for their support over these past few days...you guys are so wonderful to me!

Well, today is Wednesday, WHIMSICAL Wednesday to be exact...so time for another DIEDRICH DARE! This week, my DS Nicky decided to inspire us by sharing one of Mom's favorite treats combined with his favorite animal...and voila! You have these ADORABLE Froggie cupcakes:
This photo inspired the challenge this week over on the DARE BLOG...and make sure you check it out, because there is a PRIZE involved! ONE lucky winner will receive the adorable "DOWN by The POND" set from The Greeting Farm! Nicky LOVES frogs, so he hand-picked this prize himself :) Good luck to all who enter! You may remember the little sneak peek I showed of this card yesterday. Although I really was torn about making a froggie card myself, I decided to use the colors from this week's challenge to create a card for the COPIC CHALLENGE that is also going on now at DieCuts R Us! Who DOESN'T love a 2-in-1 challenge card?! I do! I do! This card uses an exclusive DieCuts R Us digital stamp that is being showed as a teaser for actually another stamp being released VERY soon...Claudia is even going to have a contest to NAME her stamp, so stay tuned!

In the mean time, check out the other marvelous samples from the rest of our DAREDEVILS:
Thanks for stopping by today everyone and for being so awesome! I'll see you back here tomorrow for something SUPER SPECIAL...omgosh you will NOT want to miss it! I am so excited about it and can't wait to share it with you! Hugs!

Jessica :)

Inspiration challenges are meant to inspire Jess, so don't feel bad about not using a froggy! I think there will be enough frogs from the rest of the daredevils to keep Nicky happy! :D Hope you're taking lots of pain meds this morning and if all else fails - I hear whiskey does the trick too! LOL
