Being Fabulous is Hard Work!

The correct designer of this fabulous frog image is Chrissy Armstrong.  Since I had a request as to the name of this stamp and how to find it and after trying to come up with the right answer, I wrote to her asking about the image. 

This is Chrissy's reply.  I had drawn Beach Baby Jayme as a gift for my friend Lisa.  Lisa has a sister who has terminal cancer. Last year, Lisa did a card drive for Jayme to try to put some smiles and joy into her life. Jayme loves frogs and has a sense of humour. So I put those two thoughts together, and came up with a hilarious sun-bathing froggie. For awhile, I offered it as a free image from Whimsy Stamps, where I have a drawing contract.

It is no longer on the Whimsy website, so you can't link it anywhere.  The image is not being offered anymore, sorry.   

Chrissy did give me her link so I would like to share it with you so we can see her other fabulous images.  Thank you Chrissy.
 I think this is such a fun card using bright and fun paper along with an adorably fabulous frog.  The sentiment is from TLC Creations.  The inside frog image is from Bugaboo.  I used water color pencils to color the images.
