“Do you love me?” ~ “Yeah,toadily!”

The theme this week at Digi Doodle Shop’s Best is Valentine’s.To be in the running for the $10 Gift Certificate to spend at Digi Doodle Shop or  to join us as a Guest Designer please click on the link.While you’re there please take a look at the DT’s wonderful work.

For my card I’ve used the adorable Love Frogs from Digi Doodle Shop.They’ve been coloured with Promarkers and  Glossy Accents added to the hearts.You may just be able to detect the shine.I adopted a cartoon like style when colouring to compliment the image.As this is a card for my DH I didn’t want to make it too pink,frilly,adorned with pearls or swathed in lace.Just don’t think he’d appreciate it somehow!! I opted for the blue/green colour scheme  to tie in with my froggy friends too and chose some rather masculine hardware in the form of brads and a gromlet. Even the ribbon is the more manly grossgrain!The sentiment I generated on the computer in a colour to match.The words just ‘hopped’ into my head!!(Sorry just had to say it!)

I’ve used a couple of elements from the ‘Wuv you Ella’ set,including the delightful Ella herself.She’s been coloured with Promarkers and I hand stamped the message in her thought bubble.I’ve kept the layout quite simple because of the colour scheme and I didn’t want to lose Ella amongst too much fuss,did I?I wanted to mount her on the same paper as in the background so rather than cut into another piece of paper I figured out that I could cut it from the same piece as it would be covered with a scalloped oval.It worked! I cut her and the thought bubble out – just don’t look too closely at the small circle!Still,it’s lucky to have survived!Did think afterwards it would’ve been easier to punch it out – duh!I I just added some borders cut from a Sizzix die and the heart with the swirls and flower from the set,also coloured with Promarkers.If you think Ella looks sweet you can find other sets and images featuring her at AiFactory.
