Freddy the frog has escaped! What to do???? Call Curt, of course. He is a professional frog finder/catcher. Let me explain….
While leaning pools with me this summer, Curt has learned the art of frog catching. I have one particular pool that for that last several months each week we find and catch the same frog. I am sure it is the same frog because he “winks” at me each week. hehe
Curt knows that if a frog feels he is about to be captured, he will swim to the bottom of the pool. With this knowledge in mind, Curt is using it at the pond where Freddy is thought to be hiding.
Since the water isn’t as clear as a pool, he had to actually go “IN” the water, snorkel and all. Low and behold there sat ole Freddy.
He was an easy catch. Seem he wasn't trying to run away after all, but rather he was trying to find his little friend, Ricky, and got lost. Problem solved.
Card info…..hand drawn scene colored with copics. The fish were made using a fish stencil and…wait for it….joint compound from the hardware store. Added some drywall tape for an embellishment. Layered my scene on black cs, then on a black card with a gelli print. Done.....not sure where that dang fly came from. hehe
Well it’s off to the grocery store. Have a great Teapot Tuesday Ladies! See you soon. TFL :0)

Cathy this is delightful!! I don't know what we would be without Curt (and you...) showing up to solve the problems each week. I love your dimensional fish and netting, but I sure hope that fly gets caught too...Ricky's mom is not going to like it in his hospital room! Thanks so much for coming to Tyler's Teaparty, it just wouldn't be the same without you...Hugz!!

I guess you would know about frogs -- we sometimes find them in the skimmer basket at our neighborhood pool.
Love the spackling fish -- Home Depot ranks up there with Mike's when it comes to stamping supplies, in my book.

Cathy such an adorable card---lucky to be able to draw as you do. Curt is with so many jobs, a cow of many means---nice to have him around in a pinch---save yoiu lots of money. Great card and cute Curt and all the extras you have added.
