 I did the frog in multi layers.  I have not cut him yet but this is how I would lay it out when I do.  Cut the back legs out of a little darker shade of green.  Then layer the main body over that with just a tad lighter color.   Sponge ink that layer with a color that is close to the back leg layer color.  Then cut 5 small circles in the darker green shade (the same paper you used for the back legs) these circles are the spots on the body.  I only made one circle pattern, just use it to cut 5 all together.  Next layer the front legs, use a micro pen to draw the line that separates the feet.  Then the head, I would cut this in the lighter green and sponge ink it similar to the body.  Draw the mouth and chin with the micro pen and use the dark green to cut the two small ovals for the nose.  Cut two eyes then use a small googly purchased eye to glue here.  I think he is cute I can’t wait to cut him.  He would look nice in a scrap layout next to the watering can file I created.
He too was made from clip-art I purchased at please follow the rules for using him.  Click on the link above my email to go to her web-page.  She has some nice very in expensive clip-art for sale.   Do not re-share or claim him as your creation.  Feel free to re-size as needed.

Baby Bottle

I created this very simple baby bottle.  I chose pink but obviously you can cut it in any color.  I made it into a card file also.  I will share that file during the shape card hop in a couple of weeks.  The bmp was purchased from  She has some nice, very inexpensive clipart for sale so check it out.  I have not cut this file yet but Im sure it will cut ok.  Just take a marker and draw the lines in on the cap and the bottle body.

Water Can

Here is a nice Springy cut file.  Hopefully the weather will warm up and stay that way.  It has been rainy and cold where I live for a couple weeks now.  I have not cut this file yet.  If you cut it and have problems please let me know.  The image below is what I used to create the file from.  It was purchased from
