Down By The Creek Bank Frog Card

Hi, all!  It's Patty here from The Crafty Kitten.

 Joy came up with the super cute theme this week....Down By The Creek Bank.  I remember as a kid catching nightcrawlers with my dad and finding salamanders in the window wells.  Yes, I was a tomboy.  

Growing up, I didn't see many frogs around but I wanted to use one for my project. This one is from Cricut's Create A Critter cartridge.

Lot's Of Pun was the first stamp set that I bought from Joy! You can get yours here.

For this weeks card, I used DoodleBug's Flower Box paper set.  The card is 4.25 x 5.5 in size.  I cut the frog at 3.5" and then played around with the paper strips to figure out what size I wanted.  I stamped the saying on a strip of white paper and then cut the tab by hand.  After adding stitching, ribbon, and a plastic flower, the card was done! 

Thanks for coming along with me on a trip down memory lane!  I hope you'll drop by my blog and share one of your favorite memories with me.
