Unfroggettable Valentines

As I stated below, I participated in Inklings Challenges over New Years. The beauty about these is there is no time limit so I did another one yesterday. The Challenge was to use Kristina Werner's most recent colour challenge to create a card, scrapbook page, etc. Obviously I didn't get to submit my card before the deadline but the colours were just so fab and stunning I couldn't resist playing anyway.
When I first saw these colours I had a million ideas go through my head. I then decided to use the frog from Unfroggettable (Thanks Merryl for lending me the set) as the colours would look great watercoloured. I didn't really have much thought to it but to water colour the frog but by the end the card took so much shape and actually has alot of meaning to me. My boyfriend gets called "Frog" my his family as a nickname. So I decided that this card would be perfect to give to my handsome "frog" for valentines day! I am so happy with it and actually feel a little organised for a change lol! Anywho enough rambling, Here's my card...
Stamp Sets: Unfroggettable, Short and Sweet, Polka Dot BG
Cardstock: Rose Red, Pretty in Pink, Old Olive, Watercolour Paper
Ink: Rose Red, Pretty in Pink, Old Olive, Black Stazon
Accessories: 1/2" circle and word window punches, Rose Red Brads, Aqua Painter, Dimensionals
Also if your bored and looking for something to do over the break (even though for some it's nearly up) check out a new British Comedy i've been watching lately called The IT Crowd. It's about IT nerds that work for a huge company in London. It's very silly humour which I appreciate and the seasons are very short (6 per season) so it's very easy to watch. If you have seen it please let me know also cos I'm a little obsessed and would love someone else to talk to about it!
Anywho thanks for looking.
Happy Stampin'

Hi Dani!
Wow!! 15weeks :) That is exciting.

This card is so pretty! I love how on Valentines Day, you can get away with giving guys girly appearing cards. Not that I would know about that haha.

Ooh, I'm into silly humour, I'll have to have a look. Is it on tv?? Channel please haha. I love The Catherine Tate Show- another silly British comedy. Little Britain too!

They may be silly, but they're hilarious :D

this is so cute Dani, beautifully coloured too.

I've seen mention of IT but I have had that many other things keeping me pre-occupied I haven't looked into it at all. Sounds like I need to!

Have you tried turning it off and back on again?

Funny thing is, my DH (IT nerd) had a call like that when I popped in to pick him up for lunch the other day!!!

We LOVE the IT Crowd
