October 9, 2013 Hoppy Birthday

Stamp from TAC (retired), Prisma colored pencils and OMS, dp from my stash.

Hope this gets in on time to Sketch Saturday - I don't do well with sketches but am giving it a try, and we had a request for a birthday card for a "tween" boy and I thought this was perfect.  Was fun coloring this tree frog - and love the double sided DP, makes it so easy to match papers!!!  Challenges:
     Sketch Saturday - Sketch
     A Gem of a Challenge - Lets Hear it for the Boys
     Make it Monday - Anything Goes
Go check out Sketch Saturday  and check out the great give-aways plus they always have a great weekly sketch to play with.

Cute card, that background paper really makes this cute frog pop! I still have him too. We were both doing the same thing last evening! We both posted our sketched within a half hour of each other, how funny!!

Oh what a cutie of a frog. In addition to Halloween stuff my DH also likes frogs. As long as they are cute kind, not the realistic kind, I'm ok with frogs! This one is great on your card. I'm not great with sketches either...but I am trying to improve bit by bit. Along with learning some different card folds. TFS such a sweet birthday card. Hugs
