Hoppy Days & A Winner!

** Click here to see my birthday blog candy **

Hello friends and happy Monday!  I hope you all had a fabulous weekend.  We have a new challenge for you today over at the Pollycraft Monday Challenge Blog.  Our challenge this week is the Great Outdoors and here's my card for the challenge:


Isn't he a cutie?  The image is Swings and Slides - Hoppy Days.  I colored this sweet little boy with copics and colored pencils and used some Glossy Accents on the froggy's eyes.  I stitched my papers and added a button tied with floss.

You may recall that Pollycraft has been having a big celebration this past week in honor of reaching Challenge #100!  There was a fabulous bundle of goodies to be won over on the Pollycraft Monday Challenge Blog.  In addition, Paula very generously gave the DT members digital images to give away.  The image I used last week and will be giving away to one lucky winner is Little Stars - Moon Lullaby



I want to thank you all for leaving such sweet, wonderful comments.  I have used random.org to pick a number and the winner is  

                           # 11    Ardilla       

Please contact me at the email address in my sidebar and I will send your image to you.  Please put "Pollycraft Challenge Winner" in the subject line so that I don't delete your message :)

Please be sure to stop by the Pollycraft Monday Challenge Blog to get all the details on our new challenge and to check out the fabulous cards by the DT. We are being sponsored this week by Crafty Emma's Store
