Special RAK and Free Image!

Hi Precious Peeps!  I have a special RAK request to mention today.  Lisa, who is one of my designers for Sundays With Crissy (boy, am I lucky to have her on board!) and also designs for Whimsy Stamps (among many other companies!) has asked us stampers to send a cheery card to her sister Jayme.  Sadly, Jayme has been diagnosed with terminal lung cancer.  Lisa is offering up a huge blog candy giveaway and all you have to do to be eligible to win it is send a card to Jayme, and post a link to your creation on Lisa's blog, and post a link to Lisa's RAK request on your own blog.  Here is the link to Lisa's post with all the pertinent information, including Jayme's mailing address, in case you're interested.   She is asking that we refrain from "get well" cards, and instead requests that we use frog images, or just something humorous, to make her smile.  

 I got inspired and so I drew this special little froggy gal.  I call her, "Beach Baby Jayme" in honour of Lisa's sister!  
Denise and I are offering it for FREE  through Whimsy Stamps to anyone who wants to use it.    Just go to this link and click on the blue download button and it should automatically download into your computer.  If anybody has any problems, I can e-mail the file to you, so just shoot me an e-mail if you run into any difficulties.  Please continue to respect our wishes that you do not share digital files, even when they are free.  But send as many friends as you want (the more the better!) to the site so they can download their own.  Thank you!

I am not going to go into details about this card because I don't want this post to get too lengthy.  Only that I did use Copics to colour Beach Baby Jayme, and that I obviously had fun with my Spellbinder and Cuttlebug dies!

Here is your close-up.  Edited to add Copic List below: 

On frog's skin:
YR11, 13, 93, 95 Blender pen to create the white-ish dots for added texture
RV10, 32, 34, 95, B21, 23 YG00 and stickles on flower centers
RV10, 21, 32, 34, 95
Dotty ground and background:
RV10, RV00, R000, W00, 1, 3, 4, 5, T0, V000, YG0000, B21, Blender pen

Thanks for stopping by today! God bless you and keep you and shine His face upon you! Know that He loves you beyond all words!
