Hi guys! Today is my first post on the Miss Kate Cuttables blog, and I'm so happy and excited to be sharing my first project with you!
But first, don't forget to go by and pick up the Daily Freebie from Miss Kate Cuttables! Here's what FREE today!

My sweet sister-in-law recently retired from a long teaching career, and I wanted to send her a "Happy Retirement" card, and also tell her how envious I am of her retirement, using the phrase, "I'm green with envy". I found the perfect little frog at Miss Kate Cuttables to go with the phrase. Isn't he adorable! Click HERE to get your own MKC Cute Frog!

Here's the card I made, and it was so easy, and so much fun!
