Cards for Kids Blog Hop

Today is such an exciting day!  I am participating in the Lawn Fawn Blog Hop for Cards for Kids.  Here is a little message from Kelly at Lawn Fawn:

Hello and welcome to the Lawn Fawn Hearts Cards for Kids Blog Hop! We have all come together today to make cards for a wonderful cause, Cards for Kids! We hope to encourage you to also make cards for this great cause and have fun along the way, too! So please hop along with us, and make sure to leave comments as there will be prizes for commenters and participants! So let's get going! Also, if you are lost in the hop, you can always start at the beginning at the Lawn Fawn blog. Thank you so much for hopping along with us today!

Here is my card.  Why are frogs so happy?


The punch line:  They eat whatever bugs them!


This card was very easy.  I simply cut out a a blue piece of cardstock (5.25 x 3.75), stamped with the canvas background stamp, and attached it to a 4 x 5.5 piece of white cardstock.  I then cut a a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock so that it is 3 x 8 and then folded it in half.  On the front I stamped the images of the flies and frog, and then colored them in with copic markers.  I then ran the piece thru the printer to print out the joke and then again for the punch line.  I then stamped some more flies around the punch line and included a little spider.  Once again I colored the flies with copics.
 
Supplies used for the Card:
Cardstock:  bazzill and neenah solar white
Stamps:  Hero Arts Background Stamp ( a canvas stripe);  Basic Grey Leaping Lizard stamp set.
Inks:  Hero Arts Cerulean Blue; Memento
Copics: markers
