Frogalicious... so delicious!

For our challenge this week over at A Spoon Full of Sugar we are asking to see your Summer cards. I thought this was an ideal chance to colour one of these frogalicious images from the new All about frogs Scrapamagasinet digi set. I do love my rubber but also love the instant gratification of digi image. No waiting for the postie!

My image is coloured with a mixture of Copic sketch markers and Prismacolor pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend. I have glammed up frogalicious with some stickles sparkle on her bikini and also some little gems for her sparkly toe nails. The main background paper is by Prima Marketing and is called My Mommy and Me. The extra bits of dp were from my scrap draw. I used my SU Corner rounder on all of the edges. I also used this on my dp before using my SU Photo corner punch too. To finished I added the bloom, bright button and fuchsia waxed cotton.

We have a great prize this week which has been kindly donated by Regina Easter from The Cutting Cafe. The lucky winner can choose any 3 sets from the cafe site.


Our wonderful guest this week is Michele. Be sure to visit Michele at her blog to admire her gorgeous creations.

Before I go I wanted to thank Penni for the above award. You are a sweetie and so sorry I didn't post this sooner.

Have a wonderful Tuesday. We are due another scorching hot day so I may join my kids later in their paddling pool. I sure won't look this hot in my bikini ;-)
