Good Morning!


It's Wednesday (how did that happen?!) again and it's time for another Whimsical Wednesday: The Diedrich Dare challenge for you all!

I wasn't able to play last week with all that I had going on. So since all the release parties are done for the month, I wasn't going to miss out on another throw down by the Diedrich kids!! Haha This week's challenge is an inspiration one and it's a fun one! Froggy cupcakes!! (Thank you to Cupcakes Take The Cake for the image!) Someone is one majorly talented baker!

I dug and dug and then dug some more to find a froggy stamp in my collection and then I remembered my good friend Jeanette had sent me a frog stamp from WhimsyStamps and I was off and running!

I used this week's Card Positioning Systems (CPS136) and the more I looked at it, the more it reminded me of one of Kim Teasdale's cards, sooooo...I took inspiration from Kim and matted my panels with black cardstock and machine stitched around each one for added depth. Mr Frog was stamped onto watercolor paper and colored in with reinkers and an aquapainter brush. Then the blue background was sponged on for better coverage. Then I added the sentiment and the eyelets and twine detail. The finished size is 5" x 7".

You should definitely consider playing along this week because a little birdy told me that this week is being sponsored!!! Woohooo! Marie and The Greeting Farm are generously allowing us to giveaway the 'Down By The Pond' set this week in honor of Nicky Diedrich who loves his frogs so much! So what do you have to do? Create a card inspired by the cupcake image, upload it to your blog, SCS or PCP and post a link back to it in the comments section of this week's Whimsical Wednesday post. If you upload your card to SCS, use the keyword DDSC5. Need more inspiration? Check out what the other daredevils have created this week:

This is awesome and that layout is TDF! The way you popped up the panels and added the twine and eyelets give this so much depth. And your papers are so well chosen...it really seems like your adorable froggie is surrounded by water. Fantastic job on this!
