Finding your Frog Prince
I bought these 'Frog Prince' stickers in Germany whilst over there in May. I had the inkling of an idea of what I wanted to do with them but it wasn't until this Monday when browsing round a local garden centre that I found the small 'unprincely' froggy stickers :)
The card background is a white linen A6 card, the little 'unprincelies' are surrounding the Prince himself on a background of green Coredinations card from my stash, cut into a flower shape with my trusty Woodware flower punch. Some little green sparkly jewels from my stash (KanBan) brightened it up a bit. The sentiment 'You have to kiss a lot of toads to find your Frog Prince' was printed and then stuck onto a background of the same green card as the flower. I keep a note of little sayings and this was one I wrote down some time ago :) The ribbon is sticky backed and came from my stash - I think it was originally from QVC.
How about this for spooky - late yesterday evening I went into the garden to check that I'd closed the greenhouse properly and felt something light land on my foot (I was wearing flipflops at the time). It moved off PDQ as I squeaked in alarm.....then, when I looked closer it was the tiniest and cutest little frog I've ever seen! I tucked him into a safe place away from prowling cats but there was no sign of a crown I'm afraid :))
