Don't forget your lipgloss...


I have found that I really like cute character stamps - fun images to color and create with. Therefore it is not surprising that I like companies like JessicaLynn Originals, The Greeting Farm, Bella, Hanna, and Whipper Snapper.

The card in this post is a Whipper Snapper design. It features the cutest little frog with her lips all puckered up. Isn't she a doll? And the sentiment makes me chuckle: lipgloss... don't leave home without it.

I created this card for the April swapping of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Cards on Splitcoast Stampers. The hostess (Judy) chose a green theme and encouraged us to include a recycled item on our cards.

Can you tell what is recycled on my card? There are actually two recycled items.

The red mesh is actually a piece of a grapefruit bag. And the white strip is a piece of the shipping straps that often come wrapped around the outside of packages.

It was a fun card to create!
