Frolicking In The Forest~

      Hello Friends in blogland~~
These are the cards I made for the latest Forest's swap.
Jeanette's swaps are full of chatter, laughter and just plain good old fashion fun! ♥

Below is the theme for the swap, as explained from Jeanette herself:

Frolicking in the Forest
(could be animals or people)

" If you’re like me, you aren’t real sure what to do with this theme. LOL! Remember, the theme is chosen by the forest friends – you vote for the theme of the next swap.

Sooooooooooo I did a little research…

frol•ic (frlk)
1. Gaiety; merriment: fun and frolic.
2. A gay, carefree time.
3. A playful antic.
intr.v. frol•icked, frol•ick•ing, frol•ics
1. To behave playfully and uninhibitedly; romp.
2. To engage in merrymaking, joking, or teasing.
adj. Archaic


Well, my first attempt for this swap was made at least a couple months ago, but of course, could not find the original card to post together with these,my final ones.
 (first one I made, it involved a tree and a lil fairy sitting on a mushroom)
have no clue where I stored it :( - but will post once its found.

The above, is the inside of the card, 
with a second sentiment (unknown) and a wee frog.

The silhouette stamp (bought brand new at a garage sale ) finally saw ink ,after being dormant since its purchase, for about three years. I think this stamp is definetly embracing all the definitions for 'frolicking'......don't you?? ;o) 
         *Hopefully Jeanette and the rest of the recipients will like my interpretation...*
