♥ Simon Says...Create with Critters ♥

Hello there! Thank you so much to everyone who sent me Birthday Wishes! I had a nice day on Monday! Hubby made lunch and then we all went out for a nice family Birthday Dinner! The first day I didn't cook at all in years! :)
Today starts a brand new challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog! This week's challenge is all about....CRITTERS! We want to see dogs, cats, mice, turtles, etc!
And this week the Simon Says DT are showcasing products by Lawn Fawn! I am using the On the Mend Clear Stamp Set. I love that sweet turtle! I am also using a Spruce Woodgrain Notecard by Lawn Fawn as well. I colored the turtle and background panel using the Faber-Castell 34 Piece Gelatos Gift Set.


To finish off the card, I used some May Arts Natural Twine and some Hero Arts Mixed Accents.


And don't forget, the super sweet and generous Heidi will give the random winner of this challenge a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore! Good luck everyone!




Do you use Instagram ?  If so, please add #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too. 



And I didn't forget about my Birthday Giveaway! It will be up soon! Something that I had ordered to giveaway still has not arrived! ;)

Have a wonderful day!

hugs...

Your card is so cute. I really like the woodgrain notecard and the little sick turtle is adorable. The natural twine adds just the right accent. I like the way you tied the bow and put it under the turtle.
