My 1st ATC Swap...Frogs !

Hi Friends,
I know I have been MIA lately & that's because I was down with Viral Infections & Fever. I'm still too weak to do some crafting. Something or the other keeps happening around me, because of which I couldn't get time to enter my Craft Room. This is my first ATC Swap that I entered into at The Crafter's Cafe and the theme is to use 'FROGS' for the month of July !! Kristy you chose the right time for this theme.. Monsoons !! :) I hope the recipients like this cute Froggie...I had fun making these..
Without much a say here's the ATC that I made. I couldn't take all the pics of them (I made 12 of them in 2 designs) Before I could take pics of them all, I sealed them in an envelope ready to be mailed. Guess I'll have to ask Kristy Deyette to take pics of them. <gee>

Supplies Used:
Card Stock - Local Buy
Stamps - Frog "Leap For Life'' by Unity Stamp Co.
Sentiment - Dec 2011 KOM - Filled with Love by Unity Stamp Co.
