Froggy gift ! MMSC51

Well the weekend is coming to an end, hope you had a nice one...ours has been really windy here. I tell you I fell like I have been going in circles non stop, I have been working to much here lately however hopefully that will all change after this week as I have hired a new person. Ok on to my little card ! This little image just makes me smile, I love the frog, the backwards hat(how both of my boys wore them when they were little.... the youngest one(28) still does and those feet are just to much. I have followed the sketch over at Midnight Madness MMSC51. This card is really out of the norm for me as most of my coloring is of Tilda and girly type cards, but this is a special little card that is going to a very special little boy, my grandson Ricky IV that lives in Florida who is 6 and I miss so much.

The name of my image is called "Froggy gift" by High Hopes you can get him at 7 Kids College Fund he seems to be out of stock at the moment.....I was lucky enough to have a friend send me a couple, thanks Lena !

I have colored my image with copics R22, 24,27,29 32
B32,34 & YG21, 23 and C1
Sakura Gelly roll white use for highlight dots.
Frame and border were cut on my wishblade.
I inked the outer edge of the card with deep blue cat eye inks.
DP's were scraps from my stash and buttons are stash too !

Well that is it for me this weekend thanks for coming by, and find some time to color it is good for the mind :)

Great card. I love HH images. I have quite a few of them but since I discovered Maggies I don't use them like I should. Love your coloring. You are doing great. I need to get into class 2 and do something but just not been in the mood. I love all your cards.
