Frog Christmas Card for my Dad

My Dad and I use the line "cold as a frog" when we're feeling a bit chilly. So I thought I'd make the poem into a card for my Dad, though it isn't the full poem which isn't very appropriate for this time of year hahahaha .....

 The whole card including the backing paper where made on my computer from different pictures sourced from Pintrest and combined and manipulated for my purposes. I take no credit for the artwork that others spent time and effort creating.
Page 1 - made from 6 different pictures
Page 3&4 - made from 4 different pictures
Page 5 - made from 2 pictures

 Take care and keep smiling :)
