Hello bloggers.. I hope you're having a good weekend. The weather here in Brighton is just awful today wet, windy & very very grey! but, you know what that means don't you??!!...It's a perfect hide-away-in-the-craftroom-day!!! :o)

I've started the day with the Penny Black Saturday Challenge. The challenge this week is Mens Cards as all of us cardmakers know thats VERY difficult indeed!

Here's my attempt..

Maybe a little too boy-ish, but I like this little guy & I love the frogs.

This image always reminds my of school summer holidays! of our favourite days out was when mum would pack up a picnic & head to a pond to go pond dipping, me & my 2 younger brothers would catch frogs all day long & come home with buckets full of frogs & frog-spawn to put in our garden pond. I don't think you're allowed to do that nowadays are you?!

I searched the craftroom for a frog charm to use on this card but couldn't find one, so settled for a dragonfly instead..

The stamp is called 'frog farming', the papers are some ancient papermania ones I think & the cardstock is Stampin up 'Early Espresso'.

I hope you like the card, Thanks for popping by!
