Froggie says hello

Hello lovely bloggers,

Happy first of the month. I remember as kids, we used to say to each other, "A pinch or a punch on the first of month' and how happy we felt at something as small as that.

Here is my card to show you today. I simply love this sentiment and the die cut frog has been made from printer paper that was given batik treatment - a technique which I learned from the art teacher in Zeenya's school and we made it together over 12 years or so. I actually saved this paper all these years. I coloured the frog with yellow colour pencils, stuck googly eyes and layered it on another frog in a different shade of green to give it another layer and some shadow. The washi tape is from my stock and that is that.

To those who are aware of my initiative called United World Sanctuary, we had another great event on April 26th with 9 ladies and we had a very informative talk on essential oils and their benefits. It was much appreciated and I too learned much about the uses of essential oils. 

I have also started conducting meditation sessions for individuals and groups and am getting a good response. 

I will enter this card in

Happy crafting and happy, happy happy,

Hi Monica! How lovely to see you in the Snippets Playground -welcome! And such a fun card too :) Rather a splendid looking frog - I still recall the noise of the frogs at night time when we lived in Singapore, Such a happy time, and such a long while ago as well! :)

A fun card. Do like the sentiment. The batik paper for the frog works very well and "shadowing" of the frog is great idea.
