Hoppy birthday MIL!

I may have said this before (like every year!) but my MIL is a bit of a frog fanatic. Their house is a shrine to frogs of every shape, size and colour, which makes birthday cards easy. The main challenge is finding a different design each year, but after going to the Oyster Stamps craft retreat in Daventry in March and spending rather too much on goodies, this time I had it in the bag.

One of the dies I bought was this delight from Memory Box. I couldn't wait to play with it. I cut the frogs with my Silhouette and the bullrush (called Cattails from Die-Namites) I cut in half and placed on each side. Eucalyptus Stickles and a hand-cut lily pad finished it off, and MIL was almost as pleased with it as I was.

Cute Card Thursday: sentiment
Papertake Weekly: Take your pick (I chose White Plus One colour, and am hoping that silver counts as a variation of white)
Simon Says Stamp: anything
