WOYWW 143 - LEAP DAY!!

HAPPY LEAP DAY EVERYONE and welcome to my desk from Julia's Stamping Ground where we enjoy traveling around to each other's craft areas because of her great "what's on your workdesk."  Well, surprise, surprise!  I didn't buy anything this past week, so I have no new toys to open for you.  I know, waugh!  But seriously, don'cha think it's about time I put things away and got down to work?

Today in honor of LEAP DAY, I made a ... ta dum ... froggie card!  So original, right?  I'm curious how many other crafters are doing that today.  It also makes me happy to do a frog card since we got some rain!  Happy-Leaping-Lord-Do-We-Ever-Need-Rain-Dance!  This whole country, with the except of the Northwest, is so dry this winter.  We aren't going to get much, but it's something, and all the little buds and bulbs and worms and frogs and birds ..., okay, enough already.  Here's the inner playhouse with the luscious wet and gray behind the window:


And here's the froggie card:





He looks like he sat on my hat pin, doesn't he? 

Please welcome my new follower Norma from Pink Bling Crafter.  Thank you so much for joining!  And thank you all for stopping by today and for your comments.  You make my day!!  Have a great time popping in to all the other workdesks through here.

Enjoy!

Your little frog is super cute! He looks like he either swallowed a canary or indeed sat on your hat pin! Too cute!

Wow, wow, wow. This is my first week with WOYWW and just seen your Playhouse. I have never seen such a wonderful craft space. Will show my hubby as inspiration for my craft room when we move to the farmhouse. Ali x

Oh for goodness sake ... it has taken me to reach your blog for the penny to drop and NOW I get what all the frogs are about ... LEAP year day ... how silly of me not to have realised before! LoVe your leap day card ... that is my favourite colour at the moment and I LoVe it with the blue! Debbie #89

OH MY GOODNESS ... I WANT your playhouse!!!!! Never have I envied a workspace more than I do yours! I said to hubby only last week I'd love a "shed" in the garden where I could just craft but we couldn't get past the draughty/cobwebby/dingy "garden" shed image. I simply can't wait for him to get home tonight so I can show him your playhouse. Love from a VERY envious Debbie but who is SO pleased you have such a WoNdErFuL crafting playhouse! xXx

What a great little image he makes! He would be perfect for my Dad and it looks wonderful on that embossed background.

Your desk is so tidy and your view is fab. I love your froggy card - he is such a cute little feller! xx

Just don't go kissing that frog or you might have to propose to the Prince!
Still got my eye on your play house!
