Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - A Caffeinated Tree Frog!

Here's my 5th and final card for the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  What fun this week has been and there are well over 1,300 entries!  That's a lot of coffee cards! 
I used a super cute frog die from Impression Obsession for my final blog hop card - adding a coffee cup, that I stamped and fussy cut, to one of his sticky little hands!  This sweet guy measures just 3" tall and makes me smile every time I look at him!

I cut two full frogs so I could make him into a card.  I scored a line across the top of the inside piece, from ear to ear, and adhered them together with glue.  The score line allows you to fold a clean crease for opening. I also cut an additional head and popped that up onto the front with foam dots just for a little added dimension.  
I used two different green Copics and a white Stabilio pencil to make the dots on the green and a yellow Copic for the dots on his belly.  I cut extra hands out of yellow to match his belly - and colored his finger tips with a red copic.  I added red enamel dots for his eyes - drawing on the pupils with a Fine Tip Black Sharpie. 
(I googled tree frog for help with my colors!)
The sentiment inside is from a retired Coffee Set from Waltzingmouse.

They plan to announce all the random prize winners on Sunday over at the blog hop - fingers crossed!
