Rana, Rana, Snowangel

Hello.  Welcome.  Tis the season to be crazy.  Crazy busy, crazy weather, crazy crafting.  The last has been sadly lacking but tonight I saw Shanna's post over at Viva Las Vegas and a few things fell into place.  So I grabbed a few stamps, some tape and my fired brick distress stain and came up with this

Do I have your attention now??  Have you stopped laughing??  What's wrong with a frog making snowangels???  I stamped the postage stamp dispenser and embossed with red tinsel embossing powder.  Then I stamped the frog and the sentiment.  All stamps are from Viva Las Vegas.  I coloured with gel pens and added wink of stella round the frog.  He had to have some googly eyes as well...

I used a spellbinders square swatches.die to cut a mask for the center and also to cut the edges of the panel.  I used washi tape to mask for my red stripes.  I used a black and a red pen to outline the central masked area.  It's a little bit crazy but I'm sending it to my brother as a Christmas card.  He likes frogs.  Merry merry everyone.  Hugz
