Turtle-y Awesome!!

Welcome

I am still one handed, so the next few cards that I blog will be ones that I have made recently, but have not had time to share.


I love the stamp set "Birthday Pals" by Sweet'n'Sassy Stamps, and used it on this card, starting by stamping and embossing the turtle, and then colouring it with my Polychromo pencils, I die cut him, and sponged a background before removing the die


The sketchy balloon coloured up well,


and thanks to the MISTI I got a great stamping of the matching sentiment.


After assembling the card, I added the doodled border, and was very happy with the outcome for Master Five.

I am linking this to:

Hi Maxine, a super cute birthday card for any five year old, I guess he is a fan of a certain turtle cartoon at the minute as many are here. Hope you are feeling better... Have a wonderful week... Megan

Hi Maxine,

This card is FABULOUS. I like how you did the turtle and the balloon and border look great. The sentiment is so cool. SUPER card!

May your other hand heal soon.

Love,

Such a cute image and you did a fabulous job on the design. I hope that you hand is healing nicely and you'll be back to full use soon.

Hi Maxine. Your card is turtley-awesome!! :) Adorable. I have just come for a visit and have missed a lot from your blog. Sorry I didn't know that you were going for surgery on your hand. Hope the healing is going well. I can imagine how challenging life is with having only your left hand to use.

For some reason I didn't get your blog updates in my reader's list. Will check to make sure that your blog is still on my list. It's been there for ages so I don't understand why it would go missing.

Take care and wishing you a speedy recovery.

Cute card and great job. Sorry to hear about your hand. I hope you'll be back to your normal soon. I was in New Zealand in November and dearly loved it. It is so green and lush with high snow-covered mountains and beautiful waterfalls. We had a wonderful tour. I know you love living there.

ACK! Your little turtle with his red balloon is absolutely adorable! So sweet - and made all the more special since you coloured/designed him one-handed! Hope the healing is going well; sending wishes that it happens more quickly! Thrilled to see you in the JUGS gallery!

Great card! So blessed you joined our Challenge at Word Art Wednesday and hope you join us again in our current Challenge. Leaving you with the inspiration of God's Word in Psalm 31:24 which says, "Be strong and take heart, all you hope in the Lord." So sorry for my late comment, just been so busy!
