If you came here from Lynne's blog you are in the right place.
Here are my three projects for this blog hop...
The first one is a card for Nurses Day.
The digi is from The Stamping Chef....
I coloured it with copics..added some bling...
I put it on an easel card .. the sentiment is one I found on the internet.
The second project is my twist on NO SOCKS DAY.  I can't wait for the warm days to get rid of my socks and wear my flip flops all the time......
It is a mini album made into a flip flop...
The file is a bap from Creative Kuts.... I just modified it abit ..
cut out two sets of flip flops to make more pages.. and added some ribbons and
bling and brads.


My 3rd project is a card made with a hopping frog....Frog Jumping Day!
It's a birthday card and the sentiment is Hoppy Birthday!! The frog is on an
action wobble so it goes back and forth ...
The card itself is 5 1/2 by 5 1/2 ..
I used some spellbinders dies and a sketch I found...
