Hoppin' By To Say...It's Freebie Friday!

Happy Friday!
It's time for another Digital Delights freebie and this one is one you'll use over and over again.
It works for birthdays for all ages and with it being a digital image it means you can print it as large or as small as you want it, each time just how you want it!
You can see the image being used at The Freebie Friday Page!



Just a reminder that you can now find the freebies at our groups at Papercraft Planet and SNR Card Universe All you have to do is join one or both of our groups and the image is yours. You can find it under the subject Freebie Friday in the discussions area!!) Be sure to become a follower of the groups of your choice so you can be sure to keep up to date with our fun happenings!!


I'm always in need of birthday cards so I decided to try this one out for myself along with a few challenges to help me out.

My Time To Craft wanted Green plus One
Cards For Men wanted Green too
The Wildflower Patch want Green also
Die Cuts R Us wanted No Designer Paper
Papertake wanted you to "Check This Out" with checks or gingham on your project
Peachy Keen had a Sketch
Rosie Dees had a Just For Men theme
Tellens Place had a Birthday theme
Penny's also wanted Birthdays
My Grafico wanted Plaid so I used my Plaid embossing folder



Card Recipe:

Image - Alvin The Toad
Cardstock - DCWV
Medium - Copic Markers
Brads - The Paper Studio
Border Punch - Martha Stewart
Embossing Folder - Plaid by Cuttlebug



Inside is a message mat. Obviously as one of the challenges was no DP this is very plain inside.



After I colored him I went over the tummy with YG00 to give a mottled effect as Toads are usually a little "warty" but I didn't want to distract from his cuteness too much! LOL
Don't you know a boy who'd love this card for his birtday?
And with the Birthday Circle Sentiment you can use it anytime you need a Birthday card!

So go and grab the Birthday sentiment freebie and get creating!

I'm new around here, seems like a cool place though. I'll be around a bit, more of a lurker than a poster though :)
