3 Cheers for You!!!!!!!

Hello everyone: I might sound like a broken record (you know? the LP kind😁) but I keep wishing and hoping all of you are doing ok, staying indoors as much as possible and protecting yourselves when you must go out.
Patience is the key to adjust to this situation, we all want normalcy, that might come in time, all we can do for now is wait.
So not too long ago, I discovered the Day of the Month Card Club and this time around the DT is inviting us to celebrate "Frog Jumping Day", there's an explanation about how this celebration started on the challenge blog, I didn't know about it but it's fun.
Here is my Froggy card.

This is how the inside looks.

For some unknown reason, the transparent watermark didn't want to paste, grr!!!

This is what I used to make this card.
Stamps: Frog image is from a company called "Alotastamps" 
I don't think it's still around.
SU "Happy Hour" (2012-2013)
Power Poppy "Peonies and Tulips" (2014)
Altenew "Pyrotechnics"

Dies: Nested Stitched Scalloped die (eBay)

I want to play with the following challenges.

Mini Me.........

Hello everyone: Here again with my constant wish for health and patience for you while we're handling this Pandemic the best way we can, please be cautious, stay safe and healthy.
I found this unfinished card in my box marked "Unfinished" so I quickly added some details, colored with Prismacolor pencils and added the twine and little envelope, the little butterfly was not supposed to be there, I had to cover a darn smudge, grrrr!!

This is the inside.

And the things I used to create it.

Penny Black "Critter Party"
The sentiment is from Power Poppy's "Simply Camelias" (2015)
My Favorite Things "Peek-a-boo Rectangle Window"

I'm playing along with the following challenges.

Adventure Time......

SOS Headquarters

Hello everyone: I hope all of you are doing well, it's been 2 months and 6 days since we're out having fun, visiting family, friends and neighbors, we're only going out for a few groceries when it's needed so I know how hard it is to stay put but we know it's for the best, let's all be patient and help out the brave soldiers in the front lines of this Pandemic by not getting sick ourselves, let's also pray for every single one of them and for the millions around the world who've lost someone they loved.
Staying apart is the only way to be together again.

The SHOPPING OUR STASH team has a fun challenge for all of us who have been feeling a bit isolated inside our homes and want to travel somewhere, even if it's only in our minds or through our card making hobby, the theme is TRAVELING, makes you wish, uh?
This is the card I made to inspire you to play along.

These images are from a 2004 Stampin' Up! set called "Loads of Love" and "Loads of Love Accessories", fabulous to create fun cards for any occasion.
The truck, the happy couple inside and the doggies in the back are part of this set, the cute little camper is from a Flourishes set called "S'more Fun", I inked up the trailer only using a gray SU marker, and using the MISTI I stamped the door in front of the open door on the image to make it look like it's closed, because, well....after all, it's supposed to be moving.  
The background was stamped with an old Flourishes set called "Mountain View" (2013), it has a majestic buck in the foreground but I just inked the mountains and pines, doing the "Mirror Stamping" technique for the other side of the panel.
I colored everything with Prismacolor pencils and a bit of sponging for the grass and sky, the birds are from another SU set called "Up, Up and Away" (2011-2012).

This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

The sentiment is from the same Flourishes set I used to create the mountains, the tree is from the same SU on the front.

I hope you come and visit the SHOPPING OUR STASH challenge blog and get even more inspired by the beautiful creations of my awesome teammates.

Stay healthy and safe.
