Valentine Frog and Blog Candy Giveaway

Hello my crafty friends!  For the CTVS Baby New Year Challenge click here.  I wanted to share a card I made for a friend of mine for Valentine's Day.  I've had the idea for this card in my mind for a while and today I made it!
For the sentiment I used the Cardz TV Stamps set "Toad-ally Awesome."  This is a fun set.  It even has a cute little face of a frog.   I just knew I had to make a frog with a crown using this sentiment!  The frog was cut from the Create A Critter 2 cartridge, and was cut at 2 inches as well as the crown, heart, and lilly pad.  The lips were cut using the Don Juan cartridge and cut at 1/4 inch.  The light pink mat was cut using a Spellbinder die and I used the Hugs and Kisses Cuttlebug folder to emboss it.   The card base is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  I used some Valentine's paper from a Recollections pack.  And of course I added some bling.

Now for the giveaway!  I was at Joann's last week and found some Spellbinder's dies on clearance for $2.97!  I picked up a few for myself and some to give away as blog candy.  Mary gave me a shout out on one of her videos on this great find.  Yes I guess I'm an enabler.  LOL  So here's one that I am giving away.  All I ask you do to be eligible is comment on this card, and please be a follower of my blog.  Easy peasy right?  I have to tell you, I love each and every one of my followers!  I will announce the winner on Tuesday, January 22, 2013.  I will be having more giveaways.  Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you enter my giveaway!

Lots of Hugs,
(The Queen)
