If you are familiar with the movie "INDEPENDENCE DAY", then I'm pretty sure you can hear the inflection when I announce, "I'm baaaaack." I just looked at my last post and was shocked to see that it was from 6 months ago! I recently was notified that I have 2 new subscribers - if you recently subscribed to this blog, I promise to try to do better with updating posts.

I have spent the past 2 weeks "re-doing" my office/stamp room. It consisted of taking out some furnishings and replacing them with items that offer more storage so I could de-clutter. It also allowed me to remove the cabinets hubby put up for me. With the removal of the overhead cabinets, I was able to decorate the wall above my computer desk. This is what it looks like. Can you guess the theme of the room?????

I haven't painted the walls yet - I'm thinking a pale green - for this wall only. The rest of the room has the furniture in place but I haven't finished decorating the walls - so no photos yet.

In honor of my frog themed room, I thought it only fitting that the first card I created in this space should keep with the theme.

The FROG stamp is #1122 from Inkadinkadoo. I saw this little word stamp (#H166 "Thank You Swirl" from Stampendous) and thought it was the perfect addition since the frog seems to be pointing a something - starting at one hand and ending with the other.

Mr. Frog was colored with Copics YG00, YG05, YG99, RV32, & R27 then outlined using B41.

I added "googley eyes" with mini glue dots. The center of the Prima Flower is a fabric covered button from Hobby Lobby.

Cardstock is Rich Razzleberry and Pear ???? from Stampin'Up. Can't tell you the name of the designer paper because it is from a paperpack that I've had for so long the cover is missing. (See why it's not good to let go of those old papers - this had the perfect shades of frog green. :)

Thanks for popping in and visiting with me today.

Until next time -
Happy Stamping.
