Back on Your Feet

I had a fun time today creating.  Weather was dreary, family was busy doing other things, hubby had some things he wanted to do, so that left me to do anything I wished.  I wished to stamp!  My card today is one of 4 I finished this afternoon.  Hopefully that means I'll be able to post each day for a while rather than be silent like I was the past few days.

This cute little turtle is such fun.  I love turtles.  We are visited each summer by several that cruise through our yard on their way to or from the river behind our house.  We have a couple that are rare, and we have some that are just plain ole turtles.  But here is my turtle card:

I have 3 friends right now who are either in the hospital for surgery, at home with back pain, or battling the monster flu bug.  This particular card is for one of my flat on her back friends.  I hope she gets a chuckle when she receives it, and perhaps it will make her feel just a little better.

This close up of the shell is to show how I used Crystal Effects for the little squares on the shell to give some depth and make the shell look a bit more real. Don't you feel sorry for that little guy. I can see those little legs kicking and his squirming, trying to get right side up, and on his way. I think I'll go turn him over and help him out! {smile}

This shows the inside of the card and also the envelope.
