Froggy Be Mine



My wonderful hubby took me to Michael's and Hobby Lobby this week-end....left me alone....and didn't care what I bought!   I had fun!  Found a great Valentine's paper stack and couldn't wait to use the frog.   None of the Cricut frogs were quite right, so I made up one with George ovals and circles. 

The recipe is:  3 2'  green ovals,
cut one in half for  the feet
1 1" white circle (for the belly)
2 3/4 inch green circles (eyes)
6 1/2" ovals in black, white, and green
cut green in half for the feet
2 1/4" pink circle for the cheeks

Framed him out with Nesties.....embossed with Swiss Dots.  Added ribbon and a little metallic heart, embellished with writing and tiny heart shaped rain dots.

I love your George pieced frog! I love making my own fun characters in George. Thank you for visiting my blog and letting me know about my broken practical scrappers link. I think I fixed it. Have a wonderful day!

Love your Frog. My daughter and I had a blast recreating him. I love the stuff you come up with when using the George cartridge.

Just the cutest little frog...everytime I see a frog card I think of the sentiment...you have to kiss a lot of toads before you find your prince...LOL...this little guy is fab!

What a cute frog! I am so terrified of real frogs but "fake" ones are kinda my thing...don't know why. Thanks for posting the recipe...I'm excited to try it out!
