It Ain’t Easy Being Green

Hot Diggity_June 2010

Greetings from the frozen tundra. Ok. That might be a big of an exaggeration. But it is cool and for the umpteenth day in a row, cloudy. Nevertheless, it’s been another crazy week when I haven’t found more than 15 minutes to park myself in my corner. To that end, I’m glad Clean and Simple seems to be in vogue these days – either that or there are more than a few busy stampers out there these days.

Cute frog, huh? I inked him (it is a he, isn’t it?) up with Citrus Leaf and rolled him on my Clover Meadow pad and laid him down on a square of White Daisy textured cardstock. Now, if I’d only had a “Ribbit” stamp, my card would have been just right. He kind reminds me of a couple of the guys I kissed – a long time ago. LOL.

Materials & Tools: White Daisy, Clover Meadow, Citrus Leaf, and White Daisy textured cardstock; Clover Meadow and Citrus Leaf ink pads; Hot Diggity stamp set; No embellishments; No tools; No foam tape; Nadda. LOL.

Last night, I was in bed at this time with a terrible stomach ache after having overdosed on trail mix at work. Tonight, I could take to my bed again, having just returned home from dinner with Marv, Mom, my brother and his wife, and my sister and her husband.  It was fun, but I ate too much – again. Yesterday and today were kind of crazy at work. It was a fast week that I hope ends with a slow, leisurely weekend. A little sunshine would be nice, too.

How are you? I guess I’ll go do a little blog surfing and find out. Catch you again on Simple Saturday.

How cute! I like how you rolled the image in the Clover Meadow to offset the bright in Citrus Leaf.

Sounds like you have been ultra busy this week. Sorry about the stomach ache, but hopefully your weekend is nice and relaxing. We're very soggy in our neck of the woods. Would love to see the sun too!

Hi Kathi!
Sorry about your stomach ache! That's no fun.
Your card is very cute - reminded me of the saying I spotted on the inside of my water bottle the other day . . . it was a picture of a frog and it was captioned "Green is toad-aly sexy". LOL

Enjoy your weekend!

SUch a cute card. The frog looks great with the different colors of green.

Sorry to hear that you were feeling a bit well. Here's hoping that some sunshine is headed your way.

Have a most terrific weekend friend.

I love that little frog and I am going to have to buy that set. I initially didn't buy cause I have lots of frogs, but the other day some friends and I got together and a couple of them had that set.
The frog just seems to pop off the card.
