Hot Diggity

Some cards just DO NOT want to get made, do they?
This was one of those. It conspired against me at every turn.
2 coloured images ended up in the bin, so I tried paper-piecing.
After cutting and sticking all the little pieces, I managed to smudge glue all over it. Grrrrr.
Here's my fourth attempt - still not too happy with the colouring,
but I added some glitter to distract you from it. He he!


I  used Jen's sketch from  Sketch Saturday, replacing the stars with frogs (as you do!).
You can imagine how much I was holding my breath when I stamped the 'Hoppy Birthday'.
