SFYTT for this week

I have not had a whole lot of time to *play* lately but Jen is one of my fave paper crafters and a super sweet friend so i always try really hard to do her super sketches each week.  here is the SFYTT for this week ->
and here is my card:
Pink Petticoat Cuteness!!!

Pink Petticoat Cuteness!!!

this adorable little froggy is from Pink Petticoat – I have been purchasing Liz’s digi stamps since I started stamping and she only had a few sets to choose from.  now she has lots and they seem to get cuter and cuter with each release!

i have to confess I have been on a DIGI stamp spree lately.  i like being able to re-size them and of course i like the cheaper price.  however i DO love the rubber itself too!  i colored him with copics and gave him a little bed of flower soft to hop into!  i was inspired this morning with this card  by *sumtoy* on SCS for the background – i took a few versamagic dew drop inks and my foam blending tool and softly shaded in the whole area surrounding the image.  versamagics are incredible!  soft creamy ink in a gorgeous array of colors – just YUMMY!!

How cute is HE!!!!!!  i will be making more little cuties soon....

 instead of using the tiny panel at the bottom of the sketch for a sentiment i made a little row of SUPER fun embellishments – yes i crocheted that lil froggy myself.  added two prima flowers and two tiny frosty pink square embellies.  i finshed it off with drops of lime green stickles in the centers of all flowers and along the sides of the top panel.  the patterned paper is from bo bunny

i have noticed a literal explosion of digi stamps (or clipart) available lately and with that a number of debate threads on SCS so i am curious what y’all think:

  2. Oh my gosh, Marti! I just have to say I’m so jealous of your crochet skills! Frogs are my favorite, so I flipped when I saw that adorable crochet frog!
