Lisa's special RAK event for her sister

I can't believe how long its been since my last post - how do people manage to find time to blog every day??? Actually if I did more blogging and less reading of other blogs then I might get somewhere, lol!

My card today is for a very special RAK which you can find here.  Lisa's sister is terminally ill with lung cancer and she has asked us to send her sister cards to make her smile, preferably including a frog.  Paula from Pollycraft has very kindly donated a freebie digi image to use.

This was my first effort, I love how the red (which is actually 'hot pink' Promarker) goes with the green.  For once the card came together almost exactly how I'd pictured it in my head...

I designed the sentiment circle myself using wordart - the flower in the centre is cropped from the main image to co-ordinate perfectly. Once I'd scanned the card however I had another look at Lisa's post and saw the request for funny cards and thought I needed a funnier sentiment so eventually came up with this one...

Again the frog's head in the centre is cropped from the main image (and to save making the card all over again I just stuck the new sentiment on top of the old one!)

The backing paper is a pink petticoat download which I only bought last night (how's that for speed?), printed at half size, and everything else is coloured with Promarkers.  Now I'm just wondering whether to add googly eyes if I can find them amongst all of my clutter lovely stash....

Off to colour in some more frogs while watching the footie now x
