Leaping Lizards - Happy Leap Day!!

Hello Everyone!  I feel like I never have enough time for everything I want to do, so any time I can gain an extra day, I'm happy!!  I haven't play along at Fantabulous Cricut for soooo long so I decided to make a special card for Leap Day with their color challenge in mind! 

I used the lizard from Life's A Beach.  The colors for the challenge are the Fantabulous colors
 purple, green and turquoise.

I didn't have a stamp for leap day so I hand wrote my sentiment (I hate doing that but since the day only comes every four years, it would be silly for me to have a stamp specifically for it)!   I finished it off with some Twinery Twine from My Craft Spot!

I also made some special projects with the preschoolers today.   They had a blast making and playing with their "leaping lizards"!

They just coiled pipe cleaners to make their lizards leap! 

Thanks for stopping by today!
