Here it is another month so you know what that means ...... Blog Hop!  time to visit our blogs, get some stamping inspiration and remember if you leave a comment along the way you will be included in the drawing to win one of the new stamp sets released this month.
Now you know how I pick a theme and run with it each month......well.....I guess this month I was a little scatter brain
because I couldn't make up my mind so mainly my theme is File Folder cards with a different idea thrown in here and there.  My Tiger Lily is a gate fold file folder card.  Did I tell you that I made all my file folder cards with the Envelope maker and you can get it now at the craft store.  Isn't that the cutest little tree frog you ever saw?  Oh yeah, check out my grass I did that with a pair of fringe scissor that my friend gave to me as a gift.  She found them at Job Lots of all stores and they were only $4!  great find!  My Prisma color pencils are getting a work out this week and I love it because if you follow my blog you know they are my favorite coloring medium.
This month I'm on the second half of the week for the hop so have a cup of tea and start hopping!
Here's the Design Team:
