Leap Frog

Afternoon all.  Are you ok?  I've just sat through the BBC highlights of the first F1 race of the 2013 season.  I am a little puzzled as to why, when the Beeb have only half the races live, that they insist on giving the results ahead of time on the race-days when they are only screening highlights!  I knew the result at 8.00 this morning thanks to our local BBC radio station.  Not everyone can afford the Sky F1 channel and are depending on terrestrial TV, so perhaps on highlight-only weekends the Beeb could be more discreet about when they announce who has won the flippin' race!!

OK, little rant over.  It would seem that yesterday's Chirpy Chicken card didn't really float your boat, (although I really like it and that's what counts), so let's see if today's appeals to you a bit more.

I've used LOTV stamp Leap Frog for this one - first inking!!
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap, Tattered Rose, Spun Sugar
Mowed Lawn, Tumbled Glass, Weathered Wood
Papers are Nitwit/LOTV from Perfect Pair (pink) and Bear Necessities (blue)
Matting card is from PaperChase
Sentiment is LOTV Handwritten Phrases
Corners are a Whimsy die
And it is the photographer who is on the squint, not the card!

I couldn't find the safe place where I had put my mask for clouds so afraid the sky is a bit wild and loose with a size 6 paintbrush but I think it works well enough.

Hope you are having a super weekend, whatever you are up to!

Hugs, Squirrel xx

LURVE your clouds, love the card too.

I agree about the results etc on the Beeb, it's only when there is a football match they ask us to leave the room.

Aww this is so cute and I like the chirpy chicken too. I always find there are loess comments at weekends for some reason. Seems people have more time but spend it on other things. Just doing a bit of catch up myself.

Lorraine said...

Totally agree with you, I heard the race results before I got the chance to watch any of it too!
Your card is gorgeous, those little bunnies are so cute and I love the colours.
