ABC Challenges - V for Vintage & a card for Jayme

I have 2 cards I want to share today. First up is a card made by special request.

This is taken from Lisa's post:

I am having a special event for my sister Jayme. She is in her early 50's and has terminal lung cancer. To make it worse, her sweet dachshund Molly passed away a couple weeks ago. Today we learned her cancer has spread to several other areas and her time is running out. I am asking for all my card making friends to send her a fun card...not really get well cards obviously, but something pretty or funny that will make her smile. She is a frog collector so frog cards would be awesome! I have been blessed by all those I design for to have a wonderful offer of blog candy. Details are below on how to enter. I will choose a winner June 2nd.

I used another image sent to me by Jan (thanks hun!!) as part of the request was to use a frog if you had one.  I coloured her using copic markers and H2Os on the wings. I also used H2O's for the grass and on the frog. 

My sentiment is computer generated and is the start of the story inside.. which is quite funny I think.. 

I am also entering this card into Simon Says Stamp colour combo challenge which is to use Pink (or Blue) with Brown and Green and I used the sketch from Papertake Weekly.

Directions to enter Lisa's challenge:
1. Create a card that is funny and a frog if you have one! (NO get well cards please)
Inside please include a note saying that you are a stamping friend of her sister Lisa's. 

2. Mail your card to:
Jayme Clevenger
2826 Wilshire
Woodward, OK 73801

3. Post your card on your blog (if you have one) and directly link back to my event here. 

4. Enter your direct link below (at Lisa's blog)
Please leave a link to your card created and mailed to Jayme. Thanks for helping me make her smile!

V is for Vintage. 

We are sponsored by Kellie and her wonderful shop of Tickled Pink Stamps. She is offering the prize of one Lil Lolita Stamp to our winner.

This challenge took me right out of my comfort zone but am very pleased with how my card took shape.

My papers are by Jillibean Soup, G.C.D. Studios (striped) and Creative Imaginations (music). They have all been distressed with Tim Holtz distress inks. I even broke out the sewing machine and stitched my papers!! 

The postcard is from a kit I bought .. must be 2yrs ago now.. but I can't remember who it's by. The gorgeous flower and pearl swirl is from Prima, of course :) 

Lace, button and bakers twine from my stash.

I am entering this card into
Create 4 Fun - Vintage
Die Cut Dreams - Words
Creative Inspirations - Distressed
The Town Scrapper - Flowers and Lace

Thanks for visiting today. Please do visit my teamies' blogs to see their vintage creations. 
Have fun and happy crafting

Nice! These two cards are so completely different and they're both lovely. The RAK thing is so nice and your image and 'poem' are hysterical! If that doesn't bring a smile to her face, nothing will...

Love the card frog. So sad about the insperation though. If only I was still in OK I would find a frog stamp just to send a card. Maybe i can find something and make it and mail it when I'm in CO in July and will pray for the best in the meantime.
