St. Patrick's Day Frog

Top O' the Morning!
 
And a Happy St. Patrick's Day it 'tis to ya! Life has been busy at our house of late, just can't seem to get with it on card making and blogging. The 4th Blogaversary came & went, but there IS some blog candy ready, just didn't have time to photo and write a post about it!
 
We got the damaged car back & it seems to have been repaired ok. Today will be my first drive when I go for a much-needed hair trim. DH has driven it, says it seems ok to him.
 
Had made a few St. Pat's cards, but didn't get a single one in the mail in time. So guess that means I'm ahead of the game for next year. But I did manage to finish up one that had been started with Mr. in mind. He likes frogs.
 
 
 
 
- Whipper Snapper image (I think!) colored with copics, a bit of WoS and some Glossy Accents on the eyes, water splashes & Lucky. Of course photo doesn't show it.  S/B Deckled oval to die cut Mr. Frog.
 
- VOS (very old stuff) design papers and a Sue Wilson die to cut the snippet sentiment. A few tiny green sequins and that's all the luck this little froggie has about him. DH liked him.
 
Please check in on the Cards By Friends tab as there are some cute new cards we've received. Enjoy them with us!
 
Thanks for checking in - hopefully one of these spring days, life will get back to where I will be finishing up some cards and posting. For the moment, Mr. MoJo is on walkabout and Life is busy anyway. Big hugs.

I'm glad the car is ok Mary.

I like frogs and love your card. What a super image he is and perfect for the occasion. Our last dog ate a frog when she was a puppy. She was really ill but we took it in turns to puppysit for 2 days. Sadly dear Maggy now rests in our garden. But she did live till 13. Barbxx

Sometimes life gets really hectic, I'm there too, but will have time off during Easter, looking forward to it. I've made several Easter cards, must make sure I'll get them mailed this weekend. Or else, like you, I'll have a great start for next years ones, lol.
Mister will definitely like this one!

I'm glad you got your car back, because I'm an irritable ole crank when mine isn't working right! This is a fun SPD card with all the 4-leaf clovers and green colors. I love the fun frog as much as your hubby probably did :) Good luck finding your Mojo - mine comes back in spurts :)

Hi Mary,
Loved Mr Lucky the frog and the spring like green. They had a St Pat's afternoon tea in the cafe at the home DH is in and we spent a pleasant hour with Irish songs,green icing on cakes and staff dressed as leprechauns etc.
The lifestyle crew are really good at this. Enjoy your spring today is like winter here,
Hugs

What a cutie! Of course hubby loved it. Love all the greens! Glad to hear your car is repaired. Have a great weekend.

Sandy said...

Lucky me ! I get to kiss frogs - my cats catch lizards. So that is enough luck for one St. Paddy's Day!!! We did have corned beef and cabbage with roasted veggies and Irish soda bread with REAL butter. No wonder I am getting so fat!!
Cute card Mary - at least you are making cards.

You made a great St. Patty's Day card for Mr. Joe, Mary! I'm sure he loved it! I do miss having you blog, but I know how it goes and I'm looking forward to when things calm down around the house and your mojo juices start flowing again! I do have a little one-day affair happening at my place on April Fool's Day that I think is right up your alley. I hope you can join in!! Big hugs and I hope the car is in great shape! Darnell

Bonnie said...

Hope you had a great St. Pat's Day without any pinches! I cooked corned beef and we really enjoyed it. Love your card! Frogs are perfect for St. Pat's day. I'll have to remember that next year. Don't usually make very many of those. Hope all is well. Spring has sprung in NC. I'm sure it has in SC too.

Petra Swart said...

This is a great St Pat's card Mary and that frog is really cute! I love the different papers and the pretty green edged deckle oval and ornate sentiment mat. Sorry you are still feeling a bit out of sorts on the cardmaking front but you would never know it as this is a beautiful card! x

What a cute St. Patty's day card Momma Mary! I love the papers you used, but it is that frog that my eyes are drawn too. I love frogs too and I think he is just the cutest! I didn't get any cards out either except to the grands. :-( You at least have a a head start for next year! Hugs, Brenda
