Happy Amphibian Birthday
How is it possible that the weather is always totally sucky on weekends? Yesterday was beautiful, warm and sunny. Today it's pouring with rain, with the wind howling and grey skies. Blargh! But at least that means there is no option of gardening and I'm "stuck" in my craft room. And with all my recent Lawn Fawn goodies, I'm not complaining too much! I ordered the Scripty Sayings stamp set ages ago, but as it was sold out I had to wait forever and forever. So as soon as it landed on my desk, I just had to have a play.
I just love this set, the sentiments are so beautiful. So I thought they deserve to be the star of the card, with just a little guest starring role from the adorable froggy from Critters Ever after and of course some gorgeous paper from Let's polka. I keep going through this paper, should have just ordered multiple packs to start with. The tiny hearts are my favourite pattern (obviously!!).
I already linked up once with the current Lawnscaping challenge here, but thought I could do better so this is my second card for the Dimension challenge. And this one indeed has layer upon layer! Which reminds me, I need to order more 3D foam pads. Can you order bulk from somewhere? I seem to go through them in no time... Confessions of a foam dot-aholic. I'm also linking up a second time at Addicted to Stamps where the theme is CAS. I'm also linking up with Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge where the theme is A is for... In my case A is for Amphibian (and in this case also "another submission" as this is also my second submission for this challenge. Seems to be the theme today).
