You might have to kiss a lot of frogs...

Happy Wednesday!!! This is my second post for today, so be sure to scroll down to see the other one... and for a chance to win some Blog Candy!!!

If it's Wednesday, then that means it's time for The Diedrich Dare! This week's challenge is an inspiration challenge (DDSC5) chosen by Jessica's son Nicky. The picture is from Cupcakes Take The Cake. How cute is this (not to mention the other yummy cupcakes to be seen on that website)!!!

I just love this frog stamp from Down by the Pond by The Greeting Farm. I bought those green jeweled crowns (Heidi Swapp) a long time ago to make just this sort of card. I paper-toled the frog's head to make the crown fit properly. The cardstock and DP are from a Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients Kit (surprise, surprise!), and I colored the frog with my Copics.

Now, be sure to stop by and see what the rest of the Daredevils have created for your viewing pleasure, and then join in the fun!!! I can't wait to see what you create! And guess what's even better??? Marie is donating Down by the Pond as a prize for this week's challenge. Woo Hoo! So what are you waiting for!!

Have a very hoppy day!

That is the cutest card! I love that little crown. I just did my first order from Taylored Expressions. I found the perfect stamp set to use on an upcoming challenge at SSCC. I loved that site...can't believe it took me so long to find it!

How cute is that frog. My gandkids would love it, shucks I love it! The crown just makes her(him?) so beautiful.
I am so glad I found TE KI. They seem to always have the paper I need, want, gotta have. :-) I placed my new order the day it was released. YEAH!!! It should be here tomorrow along with my new ODB sympathy ones.
