Birthday Card for my Hubby

Good afternoon, my crafting friends!  I have definitely been slacking at adding any new cards or projects or even entries on my blog since I moved.  I just have not been in my craft room that much.  I NEED to make time to do some fun stuff for me once in a while.  But my husband's birthday was on Monday so I did make this card for him.  The story behind the frog is that when my nephews were very little they changed my husband's name from Todd to Toad thinking it was so funny as only 3 and 5 year old boys can.  And the nickname kinda stuck but instead of toads he started to collect frogs.  He still has some of his massive collection 17 years later and every once in a while I still call him my "toad". 

This card is a pop up easel card adapted from a penguin card that I saw on Made by Momo's blog.  Instead of a penguin I used the frog and lily pad from Create A Critter.  The frog is cut at 4" with glitter paper and the lily pad was run through the Tiny Bubbles Cuttlebug embossing folder and inked around the edges to give it some texture.  Glossy Accents was used on the blue card stock to make it look like water.  The sentiment was printed on the computer.

Thanks for visiting.  Have a great day, my friends!  And check back soon for another couple of cards I made recently.
