Animals, babies and something fun!!

Those are the themes today for my cards, a couple of challenges and some news!! I hope you are enjoying your Friday so far! It is actually chilly here! It is also the last day of summer camp for my daughter which is a very sad day. Her camp is at her preschool and they are closing for good this week. She was fortunate enough to be part of the last class at a truly special school!!
OK onto the cards......first up is Stamp Something. This week we're looking for animals from all walks of life. I chose this adorable frog from our sponsor digital delights by Looby Loo!! What a fun little guy he is! I used some yummy offbeat Basic Grey papers along with old olive and not quite navy card stock. The sentiment is from teeny tiny wishes..what else..except I hand wrote an "o" in place of the "a" to make it hoppy instead of happy. Here's a quick list of challenges before this post gets way too long!

EAC.....sketch
Digital Tuesday.....Hop to it
CRAFT Challenge...embossing
Cute Daisy May...blue and green
STAMPIN FOR THE WEEKEND
This is my last week as a guest designer for Stampin for the weekend. The theme is anything baby!! I made this card for my cousin's Christening last weekend. The image is from Whiff of Joy and the sentiment is from one of my all time favorite SU sets, buggies and booties. The papers are from Parisian breeze and the colors are kraft, baja breeze and chocolate chip. I used some yummy chocolate satin ribbon and then what I call "boy bling" metal eyelets.
Challenges.....
