Frog Countdown

We were able to go see Kendra this past weekend. She is at that point in the semester where she can't wait for summer vacation. She'd just finished a difficult week that had a couple tests, a couple projects and a big research paper due. On the ride home, I decided I'd make her a "Summer Vacation Countdown" and send it to her this week.

She really likes frogs and when she saw Basic Gray's Color Me Silly line asked me to save those papers for her. I've been trying to figure out a way to use them for her and this was the perfect project. I used a some stamps (Vacation, Hip Hip & the bracket) from the Unity Stamp Co. for a little embellishment and cut out several frogs from one of the Color Me Silly papers. I made my chart in Word. I inked the edges of the papers and did my stamping with Color Box Fluid Chalk in Warm Red.

I used some scraps and some Thickers from American Crafts to make her a quick little card.

She should get it later this week. I hope she enjoys counting down to vacation with her new froggy friends -- or at least that it brings a smile.
