With my 'me' time I decided to participate in Flaunt It Fridays challenge. The challenge is to use the turtle from Create a Critter. They also challenged to make something other than a card. Well I used the turtle; I made a card that has a gift card (or money) holder inside. The turtle didn't turn out exactly as I wanted (the colors didn't quite work right), but it's still cute. I had a wonderful friend send me a set of Peachy Keen stamps (EEEEEEEK - LOVE THEM)! I stamped half of the face on it; I thought the face turned out super cute!! I cut the clouds out by hand and inked the edges with silver (I know, it's a little hard to see it).

For the gift card holder part I glued the bottom of the pink paper (so the gift card wouldn't fall out the bottom); and then attached the four corners. All of the paper I used was from my scrap box, so I'm not sure of brands (sorry). If you have a chance stop by Flaunt it Fridays to check out the challenges (they're so fun)!!! :) Thanks so much for stopping by! I'm so glad you did!!!!
