Mothermark's Teapot Tuesday #57/Color Combination Challenge #229


He didn't ...he jumped.

Why did the frog cross the street?

because the chicken crossed the road.

Why did the frog cross the road?

to see what the chicken was doing.

Why did the frog cross the road?

Some mean little kid super-glued it to the chicken.

Why did the frog stop in the middle of the road?

To get hit by a steamroller

Why did the frog stay in the middle of the road?

he ran after a fly and was hit by a car.

Why did the frog cross the road?

If a chicken can do it so could he!


This is the Rare Orange Rainforest FAT Frog. I found him on my craft table and he is coming with me to a teaparty on a lilly pad. Wanna know more? Come with me to Mothermark's Teapot Tuesday Tea party:http://mothermark.blogspot.com/search/label/Teapot%20Tuesday%20Cards

Cindy's challenge today is a picture of this darling fat Frog teapot. I did not have any frog or lilly pad stamps so I made my frog and lilly pads and lilly from punches and paper. For the Frog, I punched 2 1 1/4" circles. One is for the body and the other I put through the punch again and punched just about half of the circle for the head. The lilly pads are the SU scallop punch that I ran throught the paper crimper 15 times changing the position each time then pulling the edges up to make a bowl like shape. The lilly I cut a strip of pink paper 3/8" wide with scallop edging scissors and ran it through the paper crimper too about 15 times. then I wrapped it around the quilling pen thing , then lossened the roll and folded the outside edges down a bit til I had the shape I wanted.

This card is also for today's Color Combination Challenge at Splitcoaststampers.com:http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=450643
