When I started to think about what I would create for this special day, I decided I wanted to somehow incorporate a picture of a lily pad into my card. I went searching on the web and found the perfect, uncolored drawing. I enlarged it a bit, printed it out and colored the image.
After finishing this card, I thought about Freddie the Frog. It wouldn't be a celebration without that cute, little guy! So I took the blog hop graphic above, printed it out, cut off the words, and added some patterned paper and a little string for a bow. So fun!
Happy 1st Birthday, Lily Pad Cards!!! And congratulations to Vicky and Deborah on a fabulous, successful, first year of fun!
Thanks for stopping by! Now it's time for you to hop on over to Dana's blog and see how she is celebrating this fun day! She has some serious talent that you do not want to miss!
