Frogs and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails...

Well, at least that's what I think it should say. What is a snip anyway??? Anyone know?

This was a really fun and easy card that I did for my nephew who recently turned two. He is the other twin from Pennsylvania who celebrated his birthday the beginning of this month.

I sketched this layout out a while back and never made anything with it. I thought it was an unusual sketch, and it required just the right image. This little guy is a .99 stamp from Imaginisce that I picked up at Michaels a few weeks back - I am so loving our new store here...ahhhhhhh...I get lost in there.

It's all pretty self explanatory really. He is colored with Prismacolor Pencils and OMS and I added some Cinnamon Stickles to his eyes. I think he is downright cute!

I have been working on some Christmas cards for someone else, which I am almost done - YIPPEE! I haven't really started my own yet, just a few here and there that I will share in my next post. I am still trying to decide on something easy, yet elegant; after all I have about 60 to make - I need easy!

On another note, if you are a person who prays, please mention my son in your prayers. He has been having some fainting spells, which we originally attributed to Hypoglycemia when he had them about a year ago. However, his doctor has recommended that we see a Pediatric Cardiologist just to rule out anything more than that. Our appointment isn't until Dec. 1st, but a few prayers would be most appreciated.

Enjoy your weekend, and as always thanks so much for stopping by!

Sweet card....and thanks for sharing about your son. I will keep him in my prayers--so much already for this guy, but he keeps plugging!

I will pray for your little boy. Now and on Dec 1. May the doctors be wise and also kind to such a sweetie! May you and your family have a Happy Thanksgiving.
