Welcome to Lily Pads 1st Birthday Blog Hop!  Can you believe it!  Where did the time go! It feels like only yesterday when I was one of the Guest Designers at the pond. Well today I am so happy to share a birthday creation with you in honour of such a wonderful event.  If you arrived here from Barb's blog than you are on the right track. I am sure that Barb's Birthday creations really got you in the mood for celebrating and now I hope I can add to the inspiration being shared here today.

I wanted to create a card with a frog or at least a pond of some sort, but I must admit that it was a difficult one for me to wrap my head around. So here is the card that I came up with using the Digital Image "Toadly" from Whimsie Doodles and I just adore this little guy webbed feet and all! Lol.

Close Up of Colouring Using STAEDTLER Triplus Finetip Markers & Karat Aquarell Watercolour Pencils

I am submitting this card to the following challenges:
Stampin' For The Weekend: Anything Goes Challenge

Winner will be chosen once I have reached 200 Followers. Thank you for being here and supporting me on my crafting journey!
Thanks so much for coming by and I sure hope that I inspired you with a great idea for your birthday card creations. Now the hop isn't over yet! The next stop is Virginia's blog.
