Take a Leap with Just Us Girls!

It's photo week at Just Us Girls!
I took inspiration from the colors but also the word leap and thought of FROG.  But GUESS WHAT?  I couldn't find a frog stamp in my collection.  Seriously!  I know I wouldn't buy one really but I still didn't believe I couldn't find one.  I'm sure there is one somewhere buried in all the wooden stamps I have stored and don't use anymore.  SO since I wanted to use a frog and couldn't find one I decided to make one.  I like carving stamps it's pretty cool.  Of course I never (not sure you can with hand carving) get them carved so they print really crisp but to me that's the beauty of hand carving.

Here is my card:
The sentiment is from Unity Stamp Co.

Here is the carving:

That frog is so darn cute and you are so talented! If I tried to make my own stamped it would have all of you scratching your heads trying to figure out what it was. Love the embossing and patterned paper combo, too.
