Hoppy birthday

Hi this is my august spotlight for kitty bee designs. Ive gone for a very summery character this month, plus he was very cute so how could i resist.

Ive used lilypad frog with a sentiment off the frog sheet. It has a few frogs on they are all so very cute drawn by our very own Ruth.

Heres the card

Ive coloured with pro/flexmarkers, used some paper from my stash and some twine.
I die cut the sentiment using spellbinders.

The frog has eyebrows but i cut them off as the white space looked strange with my card and then i tried to colour it but it didnt work oops.. (Sorry ruth)

Bye for now

Birthday boy

Hello, its time for a new challenge from Team Kitties at Kittie Bee Designs challenge. Hope your all having a fabulous summer.

This time we are sponsored by Imagine That Digis. Our theme is Birthday Boy.

I have used the coloured image from the Lighthouse set and a sentiment from another set which i cant remember but think it was the porcupine one.. (sorry!)

I have used a card blank from a boofle set and added some hammerred card just to offset the precoloured digi. I coloured the sentiment to match and punched it using a 1 1/4 inch circle punch. 
I added some coloured twine just to finish it off.

Hope you like it
