Billy Boy Friday


Wow... it's Friday Baby!! I can't wait until the weekend. Today I have a super cute card to share. I was first introduced to this company by the stamping genius that is Lauren Meader. She made the cutest little nurse project! I was hooked immediately but waited to order since the budget was tight. Then I saw my good friend Kirsten make the cutest princess set and I just broke down and bought the Billy and Lily sets from Pink Cat Studio! Needless to say I am a WIMP when it comes to cute stamps. (Just don't tell the hubby!) Anyhow today Billy is making his appearance. I colored him in and then added some crystal effects to the froggy. I wanted him to look like he was slimy *yucko*. Next I went looking for the perfect patterned paper. I found this cute striped piece from the Scenic Route collection but couldn't find a contrasting piece. So I made my own! I started with some Kraft card stock and punched out some circles in various sizes. I used SU red, Olive, and Tempting Turquoise. I glued them on including some coming off the paper edge. I then flipped the card stock and using an Exacto knife I trimmed the overlapping circles. I finished it off with some paper piercing. I really like how it turned out :)
That's all for today but tomorrow brings a special Mother's Day card dedicated to all the mommies of the world...and especially my blog readers!
Hugs,

LOL See, I'm just getting you back for all of those TCP stamps that you "made" me buy!!! :) You card is adorable, and it was only a matter of time till you caved on Billy 'cause of little Josh! No mommy of a preschool aged boy could resist THAT set, right! Love, your BBFF
