Father's Day Froggin'

We have a shared pond in our backyard, boy I can tell you that the frogs have bunches to say these days!  Lots of talking a dawn & dusk. :) All their noise inspired these Father's Day cards.

This Unity image was a present to myself last winter. :) I figured since I had broken out my Copics for some Mother's Day cards, I'd use them on some Father's Day cards before putting them away.  LOL!

I'm really tickled with how these came out, especially the overalls!  These two are going in the pile to bring to work to sell.  I sold out of almost all my Mother's Day goods when I brought them in the week before the big day and folks asked me about doing the same for Father's Day cards.  We also have a bridal shower coming up, so I've gotta get crackin' on some shower/wedding cards too. :)

What crafty stuff have you been up too lately?

Made My Own Ribbon!

Well, sorta.  I have seen all those luscious hand-dyed seam binding ribbons folks have made and finally got around to making some of my own!! 

Eek!  I LOVE how the coloring came out.  It was a mishmash of Tim Holtz dyes, Tattered Angels spritz, and good 'ol tap water.  I dumped everything into a zippy bag, squished it around a bunch, and left the top open overnight to dry.  The card is a bunch of chipboard shapes leftover from another project and the bling is from a bag of scrap bling I got at my LSS just before it closed.

Thanks for stopping by!  Please let me know what you think of the ribbon and what tricks or mixtures you use to create some custom ribbon. :)
