First time for this Froggy...



Breezing back through again with a card for the latest Embellish challenge. Seems to be the only thing that gets me to my computer for anything non-work or PTA related these days. Sheesh!
I made this card a couple of days ago. This is most probably the 2nd circle card I have ever made - the first one I'm sure for a challenge as well. ;)
I am finally getting a chance to open up some goodies I bought some time ago (we're talking a month here at least!). And there is so much more that I still have to open - patterned paper packs, more Hero stamps etc. I think I might have even mentioned at some point either here or commenting on someone's blog (Naomi's, I think) about getting and using Hero Arts stamps for the first time... well, technically this was the first time I actually used it. Sad in a crafting sort of way, I know, but that's the way it goes in my life. But that's why I love this hobby so... it can sit for periods of time and I can pick back up where I last left it! Then there are other days (albeit few and far between!) where I will go on a tear!
Life has been very fun in all sorts of ways in the last couple of months, which means we are on the go. Travel teams have been made (oldest for basketball), middle guy threw for his first touchdown in flag football this past weekend (we were all so thrilled about that) and my middle guy is scoring soccer goals all around. I'm a professional cheerer and so happy about it.
Anyway, back to the card - I used Ashley's toot to make the card and basically followed the guidelines. What a cute little guy this froggy is. Perfect for the birthday party that one of my guys are going to this weekend. Very easy to color with my copics and a cinch to put together (my kinda cards! LOL).
Well, I'm off to bed. I'm going to be working in the city the next couple of days, which means train schedules must be adhered to (so funny how easy it is to fall out of a routine... what's the saying again - 21 days to make a habit, but only 3 days to break one or something like that?). I must say though that I love my days in Manhattan, well, as long as I don't think about the commute. ;) Later.
