Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge #5—Pick a Stamp, Any Stamp!—and a French Frog

I'm pleased as punch to be a guest designer this month for the new Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge blog. The current challenge #5  is to Pick a Stamp, Any Stamp! Whether you're a cardmaker, a scrapbooker, or art journaler...whatever your crafty cravings lean towards, I'm sure there's a stamp somewhere in your stash—be it wood mounted, clear, cling rubber, or digital—so grab a stamp and play along! The stamp needs to be the focal point of your project, and you can certainly use more than one, but you must have at least one stamped item.

As for me...oh, where to begin?! I have so many. I decided on this little cutie from Docrafts Sunshine Meadows Country Companions Frog. I colored him in with Caran D'Ache Luminance 6901 pencils and added sentiments from my computer.

We French are sometimes pejoratively referred to as "Frogs", so keeping that in mind you can see the humor in this card. This card was sent to my cousin who got a good laugh out of it.

Come join in the fun! There's a truly impressive prize up for grabs, this Hampton tote!

Paper—cardstock, Stacy Claire Boyd Stripes
Stamp—Docrafts Crafty Companions Sunshine Meadows Frog
