Snail and Turtle

     Today I'm using a brand new image from Sasayaki Glitter and that little snail just makes me laugh!  The turtle is also cute but the silly smile on the face of the snail is just too much.  I decided they looked like they're wearing party hats so I used them to beef up my stash of birthday cards.


I based this on the sketch over at Die Cuttin' Divas
but turned one-quarter turn to accommodate the shape of my image piece.


     As usual, I used my ProMarkers to color the image, then cut both it and the sentiment with Unbranded dies.  I found a scrap of bleached purple CS and another scrap of turquoise CS, embossed with my "linen" folder, and used them on the background.

     I wanted to leave this one very simple so I added only one small ribbon as embellishment.

     This is my first, post-holidays, Saturday and I'm making the most of it.  You're going to find me sequestered in the craft room most of the weekend and I may even completely ignore the dishes in the sink and the dry goods which need to be put away after yesterday's shopping trip to restock the cupboards.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
