*Swimmin' Froggies*

I shouldn't complain about the rain... we really need it.... we recorded the hottest July on record since the 1940s or something. I know we need the rain. But do we need the chilly weather to go along with it??!! I much prefer the heat!!

I created this card using the sketch over on Jen's Blog... the same sketch I used for the pink card I posted earlier this week (was that just yesterday??!!). Only this time, I didn't put on one of the elements.

I don't make a lot of cards that are suitable for kids, so this was a little tough for me. Sure, I have kids of my own, but (gasp) I usually buy them cards (gasp). I am just not a "boy" card kind of person.

But, I signed up for a one-on-one swap on Jen's Blog (another Jen), and while we don't have to send a card to our match with their requested theme, I thought I would try.

Instead of a small 4.25" square card, this one is a full 5.5" square card.

I'm not sure if my match wanted a card for a boy or for a girl... this is more a boy card, but could be used for either. Sure hope it's OK!

Items Used:
*Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Whisper White and Wild Wasabi
*Patterned Paper: The Angel Company
*Ink: Stampin' Up! Basic Black
*Images: Stampin' Up! All Holidays
