DDD: All about Frogs!

Hello friends!

Today's the 15th of the month, the day that the Dueling Darlings 
create and post a card based on a kit mailed to us by this month's hostess.
  For the DDDivas, that would be Suzy and
 For the DDDazzlers, the hostess is Deb :)
This month, the theme they came up with is hoppin!
like. literally.

It's all about frogs!
I was so tickled when I saw the card kit and the froggie images ♥
When my dad was first diagnosed with cancer,
his dr told him to "get something to care for"~ so he chose frogs :)
He had a tank full of little green and speckled frogs that lived in his condo
in a fabulous terrarium and he got such a kick out of them.
I always remembered what one of my very first Sunday School teachers said:
Fully Rely On God! 
That saying got us through a lot of rough spots,
as did those silly frogs :)

My card has one of everything in some fashion on it ~
from the image, the paper, the doily, a ribbon, the flowers and gems!
Thanks, Suzy! 
Your kit was fresh and fun and so very unique!
In the 11 years that we've been doing this, we've never had a frog theme! 

I usually complete the inside of my card, too, 
but I put the image and sentiment on the front  ~
the inside is just blank white cardstock.
 I've colored him with prismacolor markers
and popped up the sentiment Suzy also sent with some 3D foam.

Thanks, Suzy and Deb, for your fun theme and kits this month.
The DDD will take the month of December off as always to be with our families
and enjoy the month of festivities ♥
We'll be back again in January 2018!

And don't FROG-et to stop by and see what all the Divas and Dazzlers
have created!

Big hugs, bigger blessings!
