Spring Frogs ~ DRU

Hello friends!  I have a fun little surprise on today's blog post so be sure to read it to the end.
Dies R Us is starting a new challenge today and the theme is Flowers / Spring.

I recently bought these cutie little Frog dies from Marianne Designs during one of the special-order events at Dies R Us.

I made a little pond scene using the Frogs and Lily Pad from Marianne Designs.  These frogs are so fun and can be created in just about any position you can think of.   

The surprise is that this card is interactive, using Heffy Doodles Slimline Pull Tab Dies, which was also from one of the past special-order events. 

These little fellas are jumping for joy over the fact that they've finally outgrown their tadpole bodies and have grown their "sea-legs".  

Check out this video of the card in action:
Those are my hubby's chubby fingers working the card.

Click on the link below to visit the Dies R Us Challenge blog and be continually inspired by my talented team-mates and then be sure to join in on the fun.

You can find all kinds of dies at Dies R Us and be sure to sign up for their newsletter, so you can be notified when they have their special-order events.

I've added this card to the Double Trouble Challenge "Frame It" with the optional twist of having a flower.

Thanks for stopping by!
