ZEN AND THE ART OF.......

Who knows? I remember my friend Cindy extolling the virtues of the book Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Riding. I read the first couple sentences and gave up. Guess I am not much of a Zen person.



This week at SCRAPPY FROGS CHALLENGE BLOG, the card/project should have....SURPRISE.... a FROG on it.

I made this card for my boss's birthday. I am so fortunate to have the coolest job ever and my boss is just the greatest. I am not sucking up here, no one at work even knows I have a blog. At least I don't think so. I got this stamp a while ago and just love this guy, he is just too cool. Instead of clouds I used my DNA double helix stamp so that he could ponder the mysteries of molecular life (I know, I am such a science geek but our lab is a molecular one so it fits). The background is just a bunch of sponging and I actually did some masking (which I don't often do) with this one to get the bench, frog, and sponging to look right.



I usually stink at sentiments but I made this one up myself and I thought it was pretty funny. Hope he isn't offended LOL!

Jump on over and give the challenge a try, it should be toadally cool this week!

Have a great weekend!
