Hi Stampers,

Will this Winter never end?  It’s either freezing or snowing.  I am so ready for Spring.  I grew up on a farm when a farm was a farm not a corporate business.  I spent days in the woods and by the creek.  I used a cow watering tank as a boat in the creek and made friends with countless wild life.  I also watched tadpoles turn into frogs.  I loved watching them change day by day.  Needless to say the So Hoppy Together stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration promotion is a favorite of mine.  Today’s card is a reverse stamping technique which I have done before but never as easy as with the Stamparatus.  Thanks to Angie Pyjas for the idea of using the Stamparatus.  I started with a base card of Garden Green CS topped by a piece of Granny Apple Green CS.  The patterned paper is from the Love What You Do DSP series. I colored in the two little frogs with Stampin’ Blends.  I have to chuckle to myself when I see the tummy of the frog colored green in some of the images.  A frog’s belly is almost white.  I added just a touch of Pineapple Punch light to their bellies.  I sponged Pool Party ink above for the sky and Crumb Cake below for a base for the frogs to sit on.  I added a strip of Granny Apple Green CS as the only addition to the card front.

Thank you for taking the time to check it out.  Remember I am always available to answer questions or fill your wish list with and order.
