Sale-a-Bration Hoppy Together

Hope you had a sweet Valentine's Day!  I did.  I had a few ladies over in the afternoon and we played cards.  One of my friends brought me camellias from her yard which prompted me to look at my camellia bush to see if it was blooming.  Yes, it was!  It always sneeks up on me.  I'm not much of a gardener so it thrills me to see something blooming in my yard!  When we lived in Gig Harbor, WA, our yard was full of all kinds of flowers.  The lady that lived there before us would stop by when we first moved in to help me with the gardening.  Actually, think she knew I'd kill everything and wanted to prevent that!  I kept up with the plants for a year or two until it was just too much!  I just don't have the green thumb that she had (as well as my mom!)  Both of them could put a stick in the soil and it would bloom!

Last night we went to an Irish restaurant with the Catawban group for dinner and a comedy show.  The food was delicious and the show very funny.  It was a nice outing.

Well, we're halfway through Sale-a-Bration (ends March 31) and Stampin'Up! has added three new Sale-a-Bration gift options for you to choose from!  Click above (Order Online) and place your qualifying $50 order to get one of the new (or old) Sale-a-Bration sets for FREE!  Click HERE to see the new options.

Here is a card I made this week using the Hoppy Together Sale-a-Bration stamp set.  Isn't that frog cute???  I know there is a bit of a glare on the balloons but I couldn't get it to go away.  After stamping the balloons (from Happy Birthday Gorgeous), I colored them with my Blender Pens and poured glue on them to make them shine.

Hoppy Together (Sale-a-Bration stamp)

I think frogs are so cute!  Well, at least the ones that come on stamps!   I'm also in love with gingham and love the 6x6 Gingham Designer Paper.  This is one of the Sale-a-Bration stamp sets - Hoppy Together. 

I used the Corrugated 3D Dynamic Embossing Folder on the Calypso Coral card stock.  The gingham pieces are cut at 1 1/2" x 4 3/4".  I matted the cute frog onto Highland Heather card stock.  I colored Mr. Frog with my Stampin' Blends.  I used the 1" Circle Punch for the sentiment and matted it with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch.

We have been having wonderful weather this week!  We set a record low this morning and a record high in the afternoon.  But I fear that is coming to an end.  There is a front moving our way and we'll be back to normal February weather by the weekend with highs in the 50s.  It could be worse!!

I want to thank those of you who have told me they missed my blog.  I have gotten a couple of phone calls as well as emails welcoming me back to the blogging world.  I'm trying!!
