Froggy Prince Spinner

Happy Friday! 
Here in Illinois a high of 40° is predicted. And sunshine. 
Thank God. 

I am grateful for indoor days though. That means crafting! Which brings me to my next card. You can obtain this cutie FREE with your qualifying order right now. 

 He's part of the So Hoppy Together stamp set. 
 I was inspired from the SAB mini to create the inside of my card using the Abstract Impressions stamp set. I ain't gonna lie, it was fun stamping that! ;) 
 I cut the front out using the Layering Circles Framelits and decorated it with a knot using linen thread and a piece of the Lemon Lime Twist Organdy Ribbon which is also part of a pack that you can earn FREE during SAB! The sentiment is cut out with our new Rectangle Framelits and flagged and the end with scissors.
Mr. Froggy is stamped on the front and the back (sorry, I forgot to take a pic of the backside). I did that using mirrored stamping with my Stamparatus and my Silicone sheet. 
 The butterflies and his crown were cut from the FREE SAB Grapefruit Grove foil sheets.
The black butterfly accents are our new Black Foil sheets. He is strung with linen thread and his eyeballs were made shiny using our Fine Tip Glue. 

When I created this card I had to cut the frog and his crown out by hand (which was pretty tedious with that crown!) Starting March 1st we will have framelits available while supplies last for this and the other SAB stamp sets!!!

♪ ♫ My Funny Valentine ♫♪

Are y'all ready for Valentine's Day? 
It's not really a big deal in our house, but hubby surprised me and is taking me to Arizona this year!
I have several friends that Winter there with their horses and I've been wanting to see it for a few years now. Yay me! We usually go to an all-inclusive or go on a cruise in the Winter, but this year hubby is remodeling two rooms so our vacation funds are being spent on the house. 
I'm super-stoked about that because one of those rooms is my craft room!!!
Talk about big Valentine's presents for me! 💋💖

In light of Valentine's Day, I have a beautiful card that another fellow Stray Duckling made for our swap. 
This one was made by Mary Booker. 
 I'm so in love with that heart paper from the All My Love designer series paper (DSP) pack!
And check out the Lovely Lipstick foil paper she used with those die-cut hearts. You can earn that FREE during Sale-A-Bration! 
Such a pretty card!

Hello there Happy Stampers! 
Today I wanna shout out to all of those friends we have in our lives that we just can't thank enough. This card is for all of YOU! 
It's a Galentine and it was made by my fellow Stray Duckling, Twila Mustain. I received it in a swap recently and couldn't wait to share it. 

The light colors are actually pink, but they look white in my pictures. Whether you use white or pink, it's a very pretty card. 
Don't ya just love that best friend sentiment? I sure do! 

Happy Galentine's to all of my very special friends out there!

Love You To Pieces for the Stray Ducklings Blog Waddle

Hello Happy Stampers & welcome to the February edition of the Stray Ducklings Blog Waddle!
Being that we are only a few days from Valentine's Day, I wanted to share a card from my very underused Love You to Pieces bundle.

Like all my stamp sets that need a little love, I didn't realize how much fun this one was until I put ink to paper! My card is CASEd (Copy And Share Everything) from fellow Stray Duckling, Amy Becker. 
Here's her original card:

Amy's upline, Kelly Irish (another Stray Duckling) brought the card to our meeting. A big THANK YOU to both of them for providing my inspiration and motivation! 

And the inside of my card. 
Isn't that fun?! 

Please waddle along with us! Next up is the talented Sheryl Diemer.
