Sneaks, Sketch & a Froggy

Lots of crafting going on here at the moment - I'm still trying to catch up with everything and as I'm not a speedy crafter it's taking a long old time!
I thought I'd start by sharing a couple of sneak peeks of things I've been making with the March Bubbly Funk Kit.
This kit is a bit different, I think, with lots of bits and pieces you'll find useful for all sorts of projects. I'd go as far as to say this one will give inspiration for making cards and other things for all tastes. If you love making things for newborns and Littlies, there's something for you. If you love the vintage look, then you'll find goodies in there that you'll love to use. Intriguing, eh?

Next, I've just added a new card/LO sketch over on my other blog: The Sketch File: I enjoy making up new sketches - sometimes I even get round to making a card using them lol, so I set up the BLOG to save them on and hopefully be useful to other crafters. It's not a challenge blog, and the sketches get added as and when I do them (my aim is to load a new one each week - but you know how it is....) - if you make a card, or do a Layout using any of the sketches I'll add your link to the sidebar and then you'll be helping to inspire fellow crafters too.
This is the card I've made using the latest sketch (Sketch #5)
The papers are Fancy Pants "Botanicals" and I really need to buy some more; I'm now down to a few odd scraps and I do love this collection.
The flowers are cut with the Cuttlebug "Flower & Pot" die.

I needed a card for my cousin's little boy, and after making my card for Rein's "Fish or Frog" dare on the DCM this week I remembered the froggy paper from BG's "Colour Me Silly" cllection. Although I love this set of papers, I've never had much use for this particular design so it was good to do something with it.

I made the jumping frog using PSP and cut it with Mr Robo, the lettering is also Robo cut.
I think there's something missing from this card though, so I might add a name tag or something...
Right, now I need to get my project for tomorrow's Bubbly Scrumptious written up so I'd best get on/

Take care, come back soon :)

Gorgeous cards there Kathy. I don't think the froggie one needs anything more, it's lovely bright and funky already.
