Toad you lately

Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog.  Our challenge hostess for the month, Caz Counsell continues to issue the challenges.

In a name.... using your initials make a card using dies/stamps that start with your  letters.

As you can see by the photo above, I have created an accordion card using the Gift Card Accordion and Oval Landscape Accordion die sets designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs.

My first name is Frances, so I needed to find something starting with the letter "F" ... frogs start with that letter, so it was a great opportunity to play with a stamp set a friend gave me for my birthday back in March. I have been wanting to play with this for ages but hadn't gotten round to it.

I am not sure if I was supposed to use my surname which starts with the letter "B" ... but just in case I did I added bling to all the corner flourishes on the gift card accordion pages.

I was in two minds whether to use the sentiment included in the set, because down here where I live toads are a menace threatening the lives of our native frogs and other wildlife. But as you can see in the end I did :)

Here is a close up of the last two pages of my card.

Here is my card when it is closed ready to be placed in an envelope.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.
