Say So Long, Farewell to Cavities!



I'm a dental hygienist, so I may think this is funnier than you do! But the challenge at House Mouse this week was So Long, Farewell....what's a girl to do but use the stamps in her stash? So farewell to cavities! I have been wanting to use this stamp for quite awhile, and this just seemed like a funny way to use it. I colored the image with distress inks (this is the very first time I've tried that!)

The inside of the card says "Have a Toad-aly Terrific Day."

Challenges:
House Mouse - So Long, Farewell
Artful Inkables - recipe - 1 circle, 2 ribbons, 3 buttons
Sketch Saturday - sketch
Card Drive for Lisa Cook's sister Jayme
One Stitch at a Time- furry friends
Crafty Cardmakers - Inside Out
Design Dollies color challenge - blue, green, brown, white
Incy Wincy - button up
Crafty Creations - Encouragement
Colour Create - Soft green, light aqua
