Hoppy Hoppy Birthday

(Not sure why this didn't post at 5:00, but here it is - better late than never!)  I was given some boxes full of crafting supplies by a co-worker of my son.  There were things that I would not use (very light wooden boxes, clothespins, etc) but also lots of pre-cut pieces of Stampin' Up! cardstock and other things.  There were a few pieces that were stamped and some that were even colored.  This card was made with two of those pieces.

The frog and the pocket are from a SU! set called Pocket Fun.  They were already colored.  I cut them out and added the "googly" eyes.  The striped paper is from a Die Cuts With a View matstack.  The sentiment (from Papertrey Ink) said "Happy Happy Birthday" but I punched out circles from the green part of the striped paper and added them to make it say "Hoppy Hoppy Birthday."  At least, I hope that is how it is now read!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Very cute Lynette. I do remember that set and either have it or used to have it. You did a nice job with it and yes, it does read "hoppy" :)

Cute card! Great idea to punch out the "a" and add your own green circle there.

I love the colors in the paper you used, and the googly eyes really made the frog stand out. Hoppy hoppy was a really neat idea.
