Challenge Time

I'm really sorry, the post for today was scheduled but seems to have disappeared into cyber space! So I'm going to save that card for later in the week and instead I'll show you my double challenge card.
I made this card to fit in with the DCM Challenge which was to incorporate a frog or a fish into your card and the Cute Card Thursday challenge which was to be 'Spring Inspired'

Well I'm pretty confident I've achieved both.....
As you know, I'm really into trying out different shaped cards at the moment and the new pinwheel Silhouette template inspired me to make a windmill! Do you see the little froggy hanging on for dear life?
I bought these ages ago from my local craft store and have never used one, this challenge gave me the perfect excuse to dust them off.
I guess all the flowers make it more summer than spring but Holly's wearing a lovely spring green colour so I'm just about there.

Look! I even decorated the inside! I don't know what's got into me lately I really don't!

I know I tell you every time but just in case you don't know, the image is Holly in the Garden from the Holly & Madison download Collection.

Definately one of a kind. I have visions of the frog flying off into the air as the windmill turns.

Brilliant! Oh...that dear little froggy. I can't bare to watch him. He might just fall off at any minute.
I love the colour of Holly's outfit she looks great. :)
