Happy Friday!

Today is also the last winner of the Stamp a Day Giveaway! Drumroll....... the final winner is:
A big congrats! You've won this Cutie Pie Frog Boy! And thanks so much to all of you who visited each day! We hope you had fun seeing all the designs and winning the stamps.

When I started making this card, this cutie looked so much like I imagine Huck Finn would look, that I had to give him red hair and freckles. After I colored him w/ markers and cut him out, I wondered how it would look if I had him seated on a stone ledge. So I folded him a little and I think it turned out pretty good.

The stone ledge was made w/ part of the stonewall and the house was made by embossing the distressed lines then using a gray marker under the lines. I used square dies to make the window frame and part of a scallop square die to make the window valance. I made the little background scene then attached the house and Huck along with the greeting and little frogs. The finished card measures 5.5 x 4.25.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Y'all have a great July 4th weekend!
