Have A Frog-Tastic Birthday

I wanted to start off by saying thank you to all of my new friends. What a fantastic idea Momo had. And I was so excited to find all those awesome blogs that I never knew where out there.
And I only need to have 8 more followers to do some blog candy:)

Now for my card. I think for the first time ever using my stickles ruined the card but I decided not to trash it because it was a fun card to make.

I used my Paisley Cricut Cartridge for this project.
First I cut the cupcake at 3 inches.
Then on the same cartridge I cut the frog 3 inches too.
I cut off the pieces of the frog I wanted to use.
And then I assembled the cupcake sliding the pieces of the frog between the layers of it.
Added googly eyes. And a strip off glittered paper for the tongue.
The paper is from the DCWV Dots Stipes and Plaids pack.
The sentiment I typed on my computer.

I also wanted to say thanks to those who left me an award over the last couple of days.
I will be by tomorrow to pick them up and send them out to others.

I want to remind everyone of the different giveaways I am doing over at the message board.

Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting my blog. I LOVE yours!! (following!!) Your card is so cute. I used to scrapbook and make cards all the time but then ran out of time with other commitments. Although last summer I did buy a Cricut machine...have only used it once. But I just discovered digital scrapbooking and love that I can knock out pages so much quicker. But I will still keep all my other stuff to make special cards and gift tags. I do more papercrafting with it now rather than actual scrapbooking.
