It's A Boy Thing...QKR Stampede Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to our May QKR Stampede Blog Hop. If you did not arrive here from Jerusha's Blog then you need to go back to the QKR Stampede Blog to start from the top. Trust me you don't want to miss a bit of this! If for some reason along the way one of the links didn't work please head back to the QKR Stampede Blog and click on the next DT Ladies blog from there, but hopefully we already have any kinks worked out. Don't forget to comment on each DT members blog as you go...there is an AWESOME prize being offered during our hop this month. There is a $25 gift certificate up for grabs!!!! Who wouldn't want that????!!!!

Ok...now you should have already picked up on our theme by the time you arrived here, but we are going with "It's A Boy Thing!" So here is my take on that.
So this whole boy thing is always a tough one for me. I have a house full of girls, with the exception of my hubby...lol. I did however think this little guy was adorable...and it seemed like a boy thing to carry a frog around. Although my girls do catch little toads at our property in the country all the time. It always amazes me how they go from princesses to mud queens when we go to the land. Well I stamped this little guy called Little Boy onto white CS and colored him with markers. I trimmed him out and layered him onto the cute froggy paper from TAC. I sat and stared at him for a while before coming up with a sentiment for him. I had this punch to cut out the quote balloon, so I used that and hand wrote the sentiment. I thought the little play on words was funny...so did my 7 year old...lol. "I toadally froggot your birthday!" Now check out these froggy eyes!I am so glad I took the time to go in the Bass Pro Shop...these eyes were so worth the money and time going in the store. Such a simple thing that adds so much to the card.

Alright that is all I have for you...don't FROGGET to leave a comment on each blog...you may have a chance to get this adorable Little Boy stamp for yourself, and some of the other awesome QKR Stampede stamps.

Now hop along on over to see what Laralee has in store for you.
