Happy Monday Morning!

Hope everyone had a great weekend. I'm actually sad that the weekend is over. The weather was so nice here and we had a nice low key weekend.

First of all today, I want to share some great news...Katie Cotton from Paper Makeup Stamps has generously added to my CF fundraising blog candy. To see the new additions check out the blog candy sticky post at the top of my blog! Thanks SO much Katie!

Now for a project today...This is a card I made using the newly released "Shelldon the Turtle" stamp from DRS Designs. Isn't he just the cutest thing ever.

Annabelle loves this turtle and even made her own card. I swear at 5 years old she colors better than I do. Unfortunately Crayolas are now not good enough for her. She wants to use my Prismacolor and Copic markers because her markers don't have the right color of pink..and green...and blue...etc. I have given in and let her use the large collection of Bic and Sharpie permanent markers that I have and even a few Prismas but the Copics are off limits. She even uses the nestibilities all on her own. I find her down in my stamp room cutting her images out in different shapes all the time. I love how she added the green to the edges of the pinking circle. I'm so lucky to have been blessed with a crafty little girl!
I hope you all have a wonderful day! Tomorrow I have a bunch of things to share...the JB Tuesday challenge and the MTT challenge. There will be so many fun things going on you won't want to miss them!
Thanks for stopping by today!

Heather you card is just adorable! I love this sweet little turtle and the great background you created! The touch of red really sets everything off! But Annabelle's card blows me away! I can't believe she is only five and she made that beautiful creation! teh coloring is outstanding! She will definitely grow up to be an artist just like her mom!
