C'mon in to Mushroom Manor...

Welcome to new release day with Heartfelt Creations!
Allow us to introduce to you the "Winking Frog" Collection!
It's sooooo cute!
I really need to put you on high alert as I think this collection will sell out quickly!
Be sure to visit the Heartfelt Creations online store to snatch yours up early!

Anyhoo...here's a little more about the Winking Frogs...

Don your rubber boots, grab your field glasses and come along as we set out to explore picturesque marshes filled with dazzling water florals, glistening dragonflies, miniature forests of cattails and flourishing crops of toadstools! Walk softly and  be aware of your surroundings at all times as the delightful gems we seek are not always easily seen and blend in with their surroundings perfectly.  Pause and listen carefully as the only clues we have to follow, leading us to our destination are the soft and throaty croaks filling the cool evening air.  Follow the quick flickering of the lightning bugs as dusk begins to fall, being careful to not be seen in their shadows.  Now...grab your field glasses...we've discovered the habitat we've been so curious about! Through your field glasses you see them...you have a front row seat to witness their fun and frolic, entertaining antics and flirtatious ways, and can only hope to eventually be invited in to make their acquaintances and join in the laughter and merriment!  Come along side Heartfelt Creations as we discover and reveal the amusing and spirited "Winking Frog" Collection.  Vintage inspired illustrations will bring back memories of classic childhood story books, quick witted sentiments will add a touch of fun, and the serene and calming color palette of the collection is sure to speak to the heart of everyone who ventures here.  The invitation has been sent to join in on the high jinks, so now it's your turn to dive in...try your hand at creating beautiful water florals, hop from lily pad to lily pad on handsome decorative paper, play hide and seek with glorious die cuts and with the little polliwogs among the weeds and cattails....now aren't you glad you listened and wore your rubber boots!

The first thing I thought of when I saw this collection were old fashioned children's books, wedding announcements and a fun toadstool gift box!  It's the latter that I decided to go with to premiere this adorable collection!

Here's a peek...

I wanted this gift box to be something extra special....lots of sparkle, so it looked like something magical out of a fairy tale.  I actually envisioned this as a fun engagement ring presentation.  Imagine receiving your ring from your prince in this fairy tale container!  LOL  Those two wide eyed frogs in love sitting under their own toadstool being "croaked" to by the fiddle'n frog in the front yard of their mushroom manor!  LOL

Here's a closer look...

...and of course one has to include water lilies and lily pads to this swamp style creation...all with a visiting dragon fly...

...and as these close up photos show you, I was completely serious about having this gift box sparkle...

I do hope you've enjoyed my share today!
I hope you've been completely inspired to create a magical fairy tale creation yourself with the new Winking Frog Collection!  Wouldn't it be completely adorable paired up with the owls of Sugar Hollow?  LOL

The rest of the design team has come up with some magical creations of their own!  So be sure to check out the Heartfelt Creations blog to continue your hunt for the Winking Frogs!

Until next time...
