You Have to Kiss A Lot of Toads ...



Happy Saturday!

Today's card doubles as my sample for both Jen del Muro's Sketch For You To Try and this week's challenge over at Our Creative Corner. I'm so accustomed to making cards with one main image panel, so I loved how this week's SFYTT forced me to think outside my box. The OCC challenge this week is to use at least two hearts. The Bittersweet background paper is full of them, plus I added two hearts to one of the toads. The images, from Anna Wight's Fish Friends by Whipper Snapper Designs, have been colored with Prismacolors and Gamsol. The sentiment is computer generated. Here's a look at the inside:



I'd love to give this to someone getting married or celebrating an anniversary. So fun!

For more SFYTT samples, visit Jen and guest designer Kirsten DuBosque at i{heart}2stamp, Amy Rohl, Carole Burrage, Kelly Lunceford, Shannan Teubner, and Susan Liles. To play along, link up your project as a comment on Jen's post. If you upload to SCS, remember to use keyword: SFYTT.

For more OCC samples, visit the OCC blog or visit the individual designers' blogs: Cindy Haffner, Dawn Easton, Denise Marzec, Jackie Pedro, Jennifer Meyer, Julee Tilman, Kim Teasdale, Laurie Schmidlin, Lynda Benden, and Silke Ledlow. To play along, link your creation to the OCC blog. If you upload to SCS, use keyword: OCCC.
