Our not so little visitor

What a surprise this fella was. It has been a long time since we have seen a green tree frog, and this guy was about 10cm's long. Normally you see them when they are just babies up here, not normally this big.
Jamie(my 11yr old) walked out of his room and into the hallway and it jumped onto his leg, well lets just say it gave him the fright of his life cause the hall light was off and at first he thought it was a toad YUKKK! But when we turned on the lights and saw it was this cute litte fella I couldn't resist taking some photo's.

Merry & Bright

YEAH finally we get the scallop punches, I had a bit of a play with mine yesterday. For the snowmen I have used diamensional tape so the are raised up.I find it abit hard to make anything with the Bold Bright colors- so here's my go at them.

it goes so well in my craft room. Alot of coloring and cutting out in this one it took awhile. But the end result is worth it.
