Creek and Paddle

     We've all heard the old expression "Up a creek without a paddle" but this little turtle (QKR Stampede - "Out at Sea") has everything securely in hand.  Our newest challenge starts today and our theme is always Anything Goes.  You can find the challenge by clicking on this QKR Stampede link.

     I colored him using ProMarkers, cut the image with a square die from Spellbinders, and punched 2 corners with a Fiskar's corner punch.  The blue die cut "splash" is a discard scrap from a die by Amy's Designs which I cut in half before using.

     Everything is laid out on a sea foam card blank.  The ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon and the bow is one of those I make by the dozens and I dyed it green with a ProMarker.
