Crackerbox Palace Thursday and Blog Candy!!

It's another Crackerbox Palace Thursday and today I am sharing two cards I made with some funny frog stamps that are available from Crackerbox Palace.  You can win your choice of the stamps featured on the front of one of these cards by leaving a comment at either blog.  The simple requirements for a chance at winning this week’s blog candy are below.

 But first- the winner of last week’s blog candy of the stamps featured on one of the summer cards  last Thursday  is………………Margy! Here is her winning comment from the Crackerbox Palace blog: “ Love the grill baby grill punny background - and the great grill image!” Margy also left a comment on my blog and doubled her odds of winning. You can leave one comment on each blog to get two chances at the weekly blog candy!

Margy, please send me or Crackerbox Palace your address and your choice of which stamps you want, so we can get you the stamps you have won.  And remember you can win another CBP stamp of your choice simply by posting a card you made with the stamps you won to your blog or Splitcoast Stampers gallery and sending us a link.

I made two cards to share today- and I am showing you the fronts and the insides of each card, because CBP has so many great sentiment stamps to go with their images, it is easy to add a perfect sentiment to the insides of your cards! The funny frogs on my first card look like they are having a great time. I stamped on green, did a little coloring and cut out with a scalloped Nestabilities die. The kraft card has the front folded back in half and embossed with big dots from Cuttlebug. The frog parking sign was stamped and cut out from the same rust card stock used for the inside piece where I stamped “Hoppy Birthday.”

My second card is a humorous get well card. As it says on the inside: “Laughter is the Best Medicine”, and I really believe that. Of course you have to pick the right person to send it to. I paper pieced the sick frog and created a pierced border with my scor-bug and thin black marker. I started again with a kraft card and added some dark red cardstock to one side. I like the color combo of kraft, red and light blue and used the light blue for the border (ek success) and the sentiment oval.

So would you like to win the fun stamps featured on the front of one of today’s cards? Here is how to win our weekly blog candy:

 1.) We have decided that becoming a follower on both blogs is going to be something we would prefer you do but not a requirement.  My blog is here and the Crackerbox Palace blog is here. 

2.) Leave a comment on either my blog or the Crackerbox Palace blog on the Thursday blogpost featuring CBP stamps.  If you leave a comment on BOTH blogs, you will be entered twice in the drawing.   The deadline to leave a comment will be the following Wednesday at Noon CST. Mr. Random will pick a winner from the comments and he or she will win the featured stamp(s). You must send me ( or Crackerbox Palace (  an email with your home address so the stamps can be mailed to you.  And if you post a card to your blog or to Splitcoast Stampers with the stamps you won and send a link to Crackerbox Palace, you will win another Crackerbox Palace stamp of your choice!!

I am entering these cards in the challenges at Tammy's Scrappin' Corner for Anything Goes and Truly Madly Craft Challenges to use Animals in our cards.

I have loved the Crackerbox Palace frogs since I bought one of their frog and sayings stamp. I don't have either of these frog stamps or sayings. If I won it would be hard to pick since both cards are so cute! Well done!

I just love the sense of humor you and Vicky at Crackerbox apparently share! Too funny, and certain to brighten anyone's day - these certainly brightened mine (and I'm not even sick!).
