The hop starts with Janet  ( You won't want to miss a single occasion!!!

The inside of the card says, “Just to say HI!”  (I don’t know why I don’t have a photo of the inside).

This is my first time of participating in the Calendar Girls Blog hop.  My holiday for February is Leap Year.  Every fourth year we are lucky enough to have an added day included in our calendars.  Although, I must say, I do feel sorry for the poor person(s) who are born on this day.  They only get to celebrate their birthday every four years.  However, now that I think about it, I would be a great young age had I been born on Leap Year day.

What first comes to my mind when I think about Leap Year is a big ole birthday party. A celebration like no other, after all, you have to catch up for three years of missed birthdays. Right?  Well, my idea was way to elaborate for a small card, so I went with something a little less dramatic.  Leaping Frogs…

I simply found a leaping frog online, duplicated him twice,  shrunk down two of them and printed them out on a beige sheet of paper.  I then colored them using my Prisma Watercolor Pencils and blended them with my Stampin’ Up blending pens.  To add the sentiment, I created this in Photoshop as well, and printed it (mirror image) onto my Rob Onz sheet.  I then added it to the card like you would any store bought rub on.

Thanks for stopping by here is the rest of the blog hop in case you happened upon my page without starting at the front.

The line-up for February includes:
