Leap Year Froggie

Finally my hubby gets a birthday!  LOL  He's the only person I know who was born on a leap year and the lucky guy can claim he isn't getting older cause he doesn't have a birthday every year.  LOL  I'm definitely robbing the cradle here girls.  :-)
     Guess you can tell what our challenge is this week at Papercraft Star.  :-)  We want to see a frog on your project.  You know they say necessity is the mother of invention.  It was necessary for me to search the wide webbie for this project cause I don't have one froggie item!  I searched for frog coloring pages which brought up tons of images, but out of all of them, this little guy was the cutest by far.  Those of you with little ones might recognize him since he's a Littlest Pet Shop critter.  I've colored him with Copics and you can barely get a hint of the Glossy Accents I put on his big eyes.  It's so cute in real life.
     We'd love to have you join the challenge with your own froggie creations so hippity hop over to the PCS blog and join in.  This week is Sylvia's turn to showcase some digi goodness from our Sponsor, The House Across the Bay so make sure you check out her project.  It's fantastic!
     Tomorrow I have two BIG announcements.  One is my candy winner, so you have a few more hours to add your name to the linky for a chance at those Saturated Canary digi stamps.  The other is a surprise that I'm about to bust to share with you!  Hope you'll come back to find out what it is.  :-)
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

I only know one person with a Leap Year birthday, too, but it's been a long time since I've seen him. He was a childhood friend. So, a BIG HAPPY BIRTHDAY to your hubby!

Your little frog is adorable, and I love that wavy frame! Plus, the Glossy Accents on his eyes is the perfect touch!

Happy, Hoppy birthday to your husband Tracy! I am so glad there is someone out there in blog land with a birthday today! So I have to ask him, what did it feel like as a child growing up being born on Leap Year? My birthday is the 28th, but I wasn't born in a Leap Year, but I still always wondered? Sorry, your card is fabulous, I love that frog image, I had to order mine, I did not have one either! Have a fun day!
