Scrappy Birthday Blog Hop!

It's April's scrappy birthday! Join us in hopping through some of my favorite blogs to celebrate April’s favorite color - GREEN!We’ve had so much fun planning this hop, and we have a wonderful line up with some oh-so-talented creators. You will see some lovely projects and have a chance to win some blog candy along the way, including a fun grand prize for this hop. This hop runs all day on April 30th, so you have plenty of time check out each project!

If you have just happened upon my blog today you can start at April's Blog to see the line up!

I decided to make a really fun Frog Card! Click the picture to make it bigger.

I found this frog on the Mini Monsters Cricut Cartridge. I cut him at 2 1/2" from some green cardstock and some of the brand new Echo Park Summer Days patterned paper (from the 6 x 6 pad). I hand cut the crown from a scrap of gold glitter paper. I then hand cut the shadow from white cardstock. I covered the front of the card with another sheet of Summer Days paper and then mounted my frog with foam squares.

I used the Pooh Font Cricut Cartridge to cut the words "HOPPY Birthday!" at 1" and the paper strip is a scrap that I had left over from the front. I am so happy with how this card turned out!!! I wonder if my Mom would mind if I made her a "Hoppy Mother's Day" card... LOL!

What would a birthday be without gifts? Aprils birthday gift could be yours - an overall grand prize for one random person, just for hopping with us! The grand prize is sponsored by April from Curls & Grins Creations (the first blog on the hop). In order to be eligible for the grand prize you must leave a comment on every blog in the hop and become a follower of April’s blog.

Speaking of blog candy, I will be giving away a fun little Grab Bag from my stash to one lucky follower who leaves me a comment. Make sure you leave me a way to get a hold of you if you are my lucky winner!

After you've left a comment, hop along to Jennifer's Blog!
