Someday my Prince will come..........

Just thought I'd drop in with a quick post today, and show you a quirky little card I made last week. I used a very sweet image from byLoriDesigns.......the Lollipop Princess which you can find at the Lollipop Shop right here. Here she is..........Lollipop Princess, having a little trouble with.......shall we uncooperative frog!

I can tell this was made when I wasn't feeling 100% as there are very little (if any!) embellies on there. However I liked the idea of using a new fold (again from my 'Fast and Fun Folded Cards' book by Annies Attic)and that together with the frog leaping from the card , didn't allow much room for anything else. Here's the inside view............

Well, it makes me chuckle if no-one else! I guess the sentiment could apply to Princess or the frog. Hey, whichever side you take.....I'm not judging! Either way, I thought it would work as a good 'Pick Me Up' type of card.

The DP's are from the Pixie Licious line by Cosmo Cricket, and what little colouring there is, was done solely using Copic's, as I paper pieced the dress and frog. I inked around the paper edges using Tim Holtz Distress Ink and used a Fiskars punch to create the trim. I also doodled the froggy leaps, and around the DP, and printed a duplicate image of the Princess, to create the abandoned crown. There is a little glitter used on the crowns and wand, and also Glossy Accents on the frogs spots.

There you have it............never trust a crown wearing frog!

One other thing............there are some exciting new arrivals over at The Lollipop Shop............brand new Puddle Jumpers, or I should say PJ's have arrived in digi form. Yes, a whole new line of digi's, starting with the Wagon Trails series, created by the awesomely talented Lori Boyd, are now available to purchase right here. Far too cute to go into any detail, so get yourself over to the shop and take a look. I'm super excited to be colouring 'Katie and Grace' right now, so hopefully I'll be back soon with something to show you.

OK, I'm now going to hunt down some challenges for this little Princess, so I'll be back a little later with some hopefuls.

Have a great day.........hope the post Halloween sugar rush is easing a little. Oh well, probably only another 2 months till we reach the bottom of the stash!
