Happy Monday and Timmy Turtle says "Hi!"

Is this guy just the cutest thing or what? Timmy Turtle is a digi-stamp you can get over at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps (along with a bunch of other great stuff!) My friend Wen asked me if I had any cute turtle images I could color for her, and I immediately thought of Timmy. I colored him with Copics, popped up his eyes and hat, highlighted with Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen and used Glossy Accents on his eyes, nails and some of his spots. I have been keeping him under wraps because he was a surprise for Wen and I could not post him until she recieved him in the mail. This morning I received word that Timmy arrived safe and sound and is now hanging out on her computer. I think maybe he needs a girlfriend, what do you think?

This adorable little Easter Anya is a birthday card for my neice Morgan. Her birthday is really close to Easter and I thought she would like this image. Morgan has the prettiest red hair and this Anya is the spitting image (maybe a little short, though! hehehe) See the faux-turquoise half-beads in the top-left corner? I have had these forever! I kept wanting to use them but never found quite the right card. I think they were just the thing for this one.

I colored her with Copics, paper pieced her dress and the eggs in the basket, which I popped up on foam dots for some added dimension. I also embellished with Glossy Accents, and Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen. I .used my EK Success Photo Corner punch and Basic Grey Urban Prairie brads to embellish the image

The flowers are Spare Parts, paper and silk, with Spare Parts Gemstone brads in the center. I used my MS Lace Doily BP on the accent CS. All the CS and DP is from my stash. I am pretty sure it is all DCWV from Joann. The sentiment is a vellum sticker and the eyelet is K&Co.

I followed my theme on the inside, with another fun vellum sticker. I also made an envelope with matching yellow CS.

I will post more tomorrow, including the card I made for Morgan's sister, Melanie (Mel-Mel to me) I used a digi-stamp from Grab-A-Doodle-Do for it. If you have not seen her digis, RUN, don't walk over there and get some for yourself!

You just never fail to amaze me with what you come up with on these cards. I'm wondering what you do for the hoildays ... do you handmake them? And when do you start ????
