Hoppy Christmas

A bit bizarrely there was a poor we froggie on the path at the front of my house a few weeks ago.  I thought it was a strange time of year for that, but he looked like he was on a mission!  I'm kicking myself now though...I maybe should have tried giving him a kiss when he literally appeared practically on my doorstep ;-)

Here's my card for today...

 The frog and heart stamps are "Peppers Christmas Party - Hide & Seek" from Trimcraft.  The frog is stamped onto Paper Mill Direct white linen card and coloured with Faber Castell Polychromo Pencils.  The hearts I stamped onto the patterned paper and picked out the white details with a white Sakura Souffle pen.  The papers are the Christmas Collection from Kars.  I did the sentiment with individual Studio G Alphabet Stamps also from Trimcraft.  These are brilliant, so versatile.

 Here's my polychromo colours:
