The King and I....

So It's that time of the week that I get to
show you what I have made for City Crafter Challenge Blog.

Kirsty is our Host and is taking us to the City of  Monte Carlo..
Fit for a King..

I have never been But I am guessing My Little Froggy friend below might have..





I just fell in love with this Digi when I saw it..  And I knew I would use it on this
week challenge..  All you need to do this week is add a Crown to your project..


I got my Digi from Designed 2 Delight. He is called totally kissable..
Which I think he is..  I used watercolor pencils to color him.
And then touched him us with my copics..  I did a little doodling around the
outside edge.. Don't look to close its not very good..  







Added a thick ribbon and some paper flowers..  A green brad...



And you have a card fit for a King..  OK not really..  But it was fun to say..
And fun to make!!

To get all the details or to check out what all the other lovely Ladies created you can head over to
CCCB!  Cheryl has put together a great prize package you could win...




I just wanted to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my Dad.
He is going to be 85 years old tomorrow..
Yep,  that's my Mom right next to him..


Thanks so much for stopping by..  I do hope you have a wonderful week..

Hugs, Linda

Aww Linda,if you could see me now,I'm such a softee where Dads are concerned,my own lovely Daddy is no longer around,he was my hero so hearing of others lovely dads makes me cry! I watch the Railway Children film time and time again,just to see the ending when the steam clears and she spots her dad saying "Daddy,my daddy" gets me every time! Wish your Dad a happy birthday especially from me.(Do I sound hormonal?) possibly. Anyway,I so love your froggy fellow card. Hope you're having a lovely week,Julie.x

I am a collector of frogs, and this is just adorable! I'd add that little prince to my collection, he is so cute. Love your card and your coloring is fantastic! I never thought about coloring with pencils and then adding a bit with the copics. I'm not good at coloring. I'll have to try your method. Anyway, adorable card and Happy Birthday to your Dad!
