It's One Layer Week ..... yeah!!!

Happy Tuesday evening,

Just a quickie .......... The washing's done (why someone else can't switch on the washing machine when I'm not here is beyond me!)  The mountain of ironing had been started (no chance of anyone taking on that task I'm afraid! ...... that might be a good thing though) ...... and dinner is over and done with .... it's time for the chief cook and bottle washer to relax!

It's also time for a challenge too, I think ...... a blog challenge that is!

It's One Layer Week over at Less is More ....... my favourite! (hmmm) and the focus this week is on .....

What do you think of these little guys ....... they spend time in water

I don't know if I've mentioned it before but, frogs are NOT my favourite things ..... in fact I'm terrified of them! I once ended up stood on the kitchen table ........ which hubby thought was highly amusing.  A friend came round one evening, and as I opened the front door to let him in, a HUGE toad invited himself in and hopped down the hallway.  I just screamed, turned, and ran for high ground!!!  No harm was done and no one got injured ........ including the toad!

Anyway .... I digress.  
These two little guys, I can cope with ...... in fact I have a whole collection of frog stamps!  These are from the Penny Black Transparent set ..... Toadily Happy and have been stamped using Black Versafine ink and coloured with Spectrum Noir pencils ......

The sentiment is from a set of stamps that came free on a magazine ..... I think they're from Acid Drops and What Nots 

And to finish off I added  the 'water' using Distress Ink  (mermaid lagoon) applied with a wet paint brush around the edge of the lily pad.

One Layer done again!  I'll be back tomorrow with this weeks piece of festive fun.  
It's time for that cuppa I think ...... and maybe a cheeky piece of vanilla cheesecake with some fresh fruit to go with it ...... yum!

Thanks for popping by .......

Cheerio until next time
