April Showers….Bring FROGS! #112 A Sassy Challenge

Apr24 blk

I have a dear friend that delights in calling me the first few nights of Spring….when the Peepers are deafening in her pond. I don’t know how she sleeps!

Without “April Showers” to fill up the ponds there would be no frogs! Our Sassy Challenge this week is… you guessed it… APRIL SHOWERS, the idea of Miz Jeni!

This new cutie patootie is Avery Finds Her Prince.


I saw this fun idea for a Gate-fold card on Pinterest.
She’s colored with Copics, clouds sponged with Distress ink.

Apr24 sentiment

I used the Classic Circle cut from the Spellbinders Lacy Circles to cover the backside of the image, and stamped the sentiment by Stampabilities.
The DP is SEI Sunny Day. The words on the front are from Scripty Writing, an old Kim Hughes set from Cornish Heritage Farms. I even machine stitched around the DP panels! The MS punched piece was leftover from another project that ‘didn’t work out’, but did perfectly for this!

Dawn this is gorgeous, I love the fold and love how the main image panel is not joined to the scalloped nestie its a great touch. Joey x

Jeni said...

Yes, they do!! I have a water garden and every late Spring/early Summer I have thousands of little tadpoles. Sadly, my koi fish eat a good bit of them but the ones that do make it are soooo cute!
Your card is gorgeous Dawn. I love the fold and the way you have the frame and the image on opposite sides. ~jeni :)
