Cozy Frog moving to Facebook

Evening folks,  

Sad post.  After a lot of deliberation I have decided to move Cozy Frog across to Facebook.  This is due to many a frustrated hour trying to post on Blogger. However I shall keep it open as you never should say never.

Please feel free to come and visit Cozy Frog Crafts and like and follow my new page.  Thank you for your support over the years.

Love and hugs

Bowled Over

Evening everyone.  Back again two days in a row.  Just sharing this commissioned card I have made. It is very similar to one I had made a while back with a female bowler. These Flippin' decoupage figures from La Pashe are ideal and I use the 'B' side as part of the insert.  The other parts of the scene are made of of diecuts and papers.  The challenges entered are:-

Stepper Card

Afternoon peeps, hope you all are enjoying the weekend.  I am half way through my Course and not got another module now until October so this weekend I have enjoyed playing at my table and stroking my crafts supplies.  Lol. Xx

I have had these concept card kits from Hunkydory for ages and ages and wasn't too fussy on them as they are meant to be completed so I deceided to have an experimental to so what I could do with them.  In the end I created a middle stepper Card, putting each element on a different step and then decorated the marble card with Diecut flowers and leaves.

The challenges covered today are:-

Best Wishes




Afternoon peeps, hope you are enjoying your Sunday.   I have wasted my day attempting to do jobs and got no where.  Spent most of my day shouting at the pc for not saving a document I was working on (not my fault of course!). Followed by shouting at the printer for running out of ink, how can this be when meant to be on this "instant ink" scheme.  After a hour wrestling on the help site, discovered they had sent me ink and was sitting under the computer desk.  Having finally trying to do anything constructive after failing to get renewal quotes for the car insurance.
I made this card during the week while de-stressing.  I am really busy just now travelling up and down the country with work, so needed a bit of playtime while watching the footie one night.

Not stamped and coloured for a while so very therapeutic.  Coloured a few images will a plan to use them on this simply layout.  Loving the strip of tartan, plus it is using up my scraps leftover from my lifts (see a previous post).  The challenges covered today are:-

Cute Card Thursday - embossing
Southern Girls - add some stamping
Stamping Sensations- anything goes

Just a Note

Anyway, made this card as part of a card swap, first time I had partaken in one.  I had used this image from Penny Black and embelllished the card with various flowers, gems and ribbons.  The challenges entered today are:-

Kilt Notepads

Evening peeps.    Long time no see......lol....  Apologies for not being on for a while, unfortunately life gets in the way.    I have been studying for my course at work, been on holiday and generally just pottering about.

One Tequila, Two Tequila.....

lol Happy Easter everyone!

Hope all is well in Blogland, not been on for a while.  Not so much from the loss of Mojo, more due to work commitments.

However I was asked to make a 50th Birthday card, so I had a excuse for a play.   The image is a digistamp from Bugaboo.  The animal print felt was bought from Hobbycraft.  The sentiments printed off computer and decorated with green gems.  Nesties circles and scallops were used.  The challenges covered are:-

Birds

Morning peeps, hope all is well in Blogland.  Apologies for not posting for a while.  Unfortunately can only play these days at the weekend.

Hearts & Heather

Evening peeps, hope everyone is well and looking forward to the weekend.  Mine started tonight as I am having a cheeky day off tomorrow- woohoo.  

I have not blogged for a few weeks as had a few things on at the weekends and I was stuffed with the cold another week so not made any new cards.  This is an unblogged commissioned card I had made a few months ago.  As you can guess it was for a Scottish wedding and since we have just recently celebrated Burns Night and Valentines is just round the corner, I thought it was a good enough time to post.  

The Diecut hearts are from Sizzix, decorated with various gems and tiny bows from Hobbycraft.  Tartan paper is actually wrapping paper.  Heather and other flowery things are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Sentiment printed off computer.  The challenges covered are:-

Love is in the Air

Good evening my lovelies, hope you all had a lovely weekend.  I don't know if it is just me, but Blogger has been playing up.  Over the weekend I was trying to leave comments on everyone's wonderful creations but I kept getting throw back messages saying My comment was blocked.  It is getting really annoying and for some reason Blogger don't seem to be an app anyone on the Apple Store.   Can anyone recommend another app to use on my iPad.

We are starting to come into the season of Love and Romance, I have been making some Wedding and Anniversary cards.  This one is made using a Penny Black stamp, backing paper I think, is from a Lili of the Valley card kit.  The heart dies it are cut from a Hobbycraft die.  Pearls, peel offs and sentiment are from stash.  The challenges covered are:-
