Take a leap ........ YEAR!



How much fun is today - the 29th!!!  My best friend from high school was actually born on a leap year and we were joking last night "hey, how does it feel to be ... 11!" :)  


First, thank you all so much for your sweet words and kindness for our fur babies.  I don't feel much like we've done a lot - just a small act of kindness for one when so many are still yet in need, but we do love them so!  Second, today was supposed to be our 2nd posting for the Crafters of Faith but our hostess this month, Jackie, was in need of some rest and prayer and to be with her loving family,  so we have collectively decided to wait for her return so we can all post together in her honor :)  We are all praying for Jackie and know that her heart is heavy and plate is full, but truly God will see us all through those moments of utmost trial! {{{ Jackie }}}


So, being that it's Leap Year, I thought I'd just make another CAS card after seeing this adorable bunny card on SCS.  I tried x3 to make this card skinnier and taller and I really wanted the froggies to be 'wonky', but the frogs kept ending up all over the place, just like frogs tend to do!  As soon as all 3 were ON the paper, I just went with it and stopped fussing over it ;)    I inked up an old set using the frog from TGF's "Down by the Pond".  I've had for forever and only inked up the turtle 'til now.    I kept them monotone, added the sentiment but carried it over to the inside with a small addition (computer generated!)  This is pretty CAS for me - only one layer!  I really want to give this card another try so if I get a free moments, I'll try to redo it the way I see it in my head *smile!*







Happy Leap Year Day to you and I hope your day turns out to be a hoppin' good one! :)


Big hugs,
Bigger Blessings!

  22. How adorable are those cute little frogs! Your layered flower is the perfect touch of color too!
    Our local paper had an article about two women who worked in a doctor's office and both were leap year babies. They were joking about their ages as well! One was 9 and the other 11!
