Hoppy Saturday...Sunday!

Aloha, all! My mom is feeling a bit under the weather this weekend, so I hope checking out my creation cheers her up a bit! (that's if she can see through all the "gunk" in her eyes!) This is a card for my friend and Malie's "auntie" who's birthday is Sunday. She loves frogs and I found this super cute Meljen image that works so well! Colored him up with copics and made a fun tag to stick behind the image (see pic below to see it out)
Here's the other challenges I was inspired by for this one:
1. A Spoon Full of Sugar - create a tag or use a tag
2. Alota Rubber Stamps - all about bugs: well this one has bugs on it (those cute little flies) and I used my cuttlebug to cut out the image, mat, and to emboss the cloud paper with swirls
3. Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog - Birthday creations
4. CardPatterns - sketch: I flipped some of the elements but it's all there!
5. CCEE Stampers - swirls: I embossed a swirl pattern on the cloud patterned paper
6. Charisma Cardz Challenges! - 4 legged friends
7. Craft Us Crazy - nature
8. Crafty Sentiments - birthdays
9. Flourishes - St. Patricks Day or use green as main color
10. fun with shapes and more - happy birthday: I punched the border and used dies to cut out the image
11. Meljens Design Team and Challenge - U R such an Animal
12. Papertake Weekly Challenge - anything goes + optional extra of something old: my old is the patterned paper and the ribbon...I've had both for at least a year
13. Simon Says Challenge - 1 image, 2 patterned papers, 3 different types of embellies: my embellies are ribbon, glitter brad, and little rhinestones (on the image)
14. The Sisterhood of Crafters - ribbon and brads
15. Tuesday Throwdown - Tag your it!

Hope your feeling better, Mom, and I hope everyone else has a wonderful Sunday!
Aloha,

I had to enlarge it to see it, but it is soooooo cute. I know Auntie Kate will love it. Make sure to put a paw print on it somewhere for Malie. Eyes are still a mess, sore throat is back, better rest so I DON'T have to take a sick day! Love SAM aka MOM

Sigh...I know your mother HAS to have about 750 sick days! Silly woman! Your card makes me happy - what a fun image! Malie will have to put her 'stamp' of approval on it as well! Have a great day, Kim!!!
