Did you notice my new card holder in the last post? I have been seeing these frogs being used as card holders on different sites and loved the idea. I have been wanting some and knew right where I would get them. While I was visiting my parents I asked my mother if she still had some and she was thrilled that I was interested in them. My mother used to do a lot of flower arranging/Ikebana and bouquets and thought I might be taking up the art. I hated to break it to her that it was for dispaying my cards and not flower arranging.
Aren't they great? I really like the way the oval one looks. You know it has seen the bottom of many vases and held together many a flower arrangement. Now they will have a new life holding my stamped cards and other paper creations.
Here's a quick card I made for one of the women in my group. She has been working on growing her business and i wanted her to know that I noticed and appreciated her efforts.
Stamps: Sew Suite and Word Play
Ink: Black Stazon and Poppy Parade
Paper: Tangerine Tango, So Saffron, Poppy Parade and In Color DSP Poppy Parade
Big Shot: Tasteful Trim
Punches: Itty Bitty Shapes pack
