Frog Prince + 365 Cards Super Sketchy Sunday

You know that tie card I made on Friday from my Craig's List stash? This frog is in that same 3D sticker pack (by Tapestry). He is so cute, I knew I would use him somehow...

This morning I saw the sketch at 365 Cards. I went to my craft room and thought about what stamp I would use as my image...then I thought of trying to use my new stash...then I thought the frog would fit perfectly in a scalloped Nestie. Then I looked through my bags of really old scraps that might make a fun card. My KI Memories scrap bag was just right! I pulled out my pink Bazzill scraps bag and my purple Bazzill scraps bag for the rest. The "Someday your prince will come." is computer generated. I needed something for under the frog (I take sketches quite literally...it is a blessing and a curse) I thought about "kiss me"; I knew I had some old Making Memories "Wedding" rub-ons I used to make an anniversary mini book for my parents a couple of years ago. You know what was left in the package? "honeymoon" and "kiss". Can you believe it? I used "kiss", then I carefully rubbed on the "m" and "e" from honeymoon. Don't you love when you use up old stuff? Lastly I used this felt ric-rac from Creative Imaginations.

Fantabulous use of The Stash! I cannot believe you even took the time to cut up the words to make Kiss Me! Too cute!

Love the designer paper June! What an excellent idea using up your offcuts like that. I have a huge plastic bag with all my off cuts in there but you sound like you have a bag for each colour. I thought I was anal lol. But when all is said and done June it really is a great idea to separate it all isn't it?
