Rick St. Dennis

Little Bits of Spring

Rick St. Dennis has come out with a sheet of 12 images for spring that are just adorable! When he sent them to me, I couldn't wait to get coloring. Here are two cards I've made with the sheet so far. I have other images colored up and will probably have them up later today, too!
He has the sheet on sale for  $8.00 right now, so grab it before the price goes up to his regular $10.00!

I think this looks like "Froggy Gone-a-Courtin." It would be great for many occasions, but I'm using it as a birhtday card this time.
I made the cattails using the SU! Word window punch. I covered the shapes with glue and Fun Flock. They weren't quite the right color, so I colored them with a Copic marker. I cut the lily pad  out free-hand, distressed the edges a bit and made some score lines on it.

The inside says, " ....and have a wonderful day! Happy Birthday!"

Images: Frog from Rick St. Dennis's "Little Bits of Spring", Computer-generated Sentiment

Tools: Copics, White gel pen, Crimper, MS ZIg-zag border punch, Mounting tape, Circle punches, Fun Flock

Papers: SU! Gable Green, Green Galore, Garden Green, and Really Rust, Neenah smooth white, Basic Grey DP

Embellishments: Button brads, Fringe trim

I'm still doing baby cards! I love this silly duckling, and there's another on the sheet as well.
I tried the "dot" technique for the first time. Haven't got it down quite yet, but it looks okay.
