Kiss Me Frog Card

This card measures 13cm x 13cm and is made using a very rough fabric effect card that I have had for years,  it was probably from one of those Paper Cellar fill a box type displays.
I just love frogs but the thought of kissing one to see if it is really a spellbound handsome prince doesn’t really appeal, I ain’t that desperate ….. yet!

The frog was part of a huge pack of self adhesive foam frogs from Hobbycraft.  I’ve added googly eyes and a crown,  then  covered him with Ranger Glossy Accents as a successful   experiment.  The self adhesive letters are from Papermania and the lily pad and little hearts are made by using punches.

Not Such A Bargain …..

Woodworm table
I saw this very small table as soon as we drove onto a carboot sale site in Devon a few weeks back, I was determined to get it and couldn’t believe it when the man only asked £3 for it, I had visions of covering it with lovely papers or giving it the shabby treatment  …….. however when we got back to the car we discovered why it was such a bargain …..
It’s riddled with woodworm!  At the moment it’s been confined/quarantined to the garden, I think it’s going to cost me more in woodworm stuff than it cost me to buy ….. but it’ll take more than a few creepy crawlies and some pongy potions to put me off!
