Don't you love that turtle???  I know I do.  I think the saying is pretty fun.  I have no doubt that I will be able to use this card.  It's not that I forget birthdays or anniversaries, I just sometimes can't get my act together in time to get the card there on time.  Forgetfulness seems somehow more forgivable than disorganization! 

My card has some stenciled waves and then some sponged water.  I stamped my sea grass, turtle and sentiment right over the top and then colored.  I finished off my one layer card with some bling bubbles.  Who wouldn't want bling bubbles?

You will want to travel on to Sue's blog to see what kind of easel she has today.  If you were there yesterday, you know that is what Sue is up to this month!

I am with you on the disorganization. I don't know why it's so hard to get things IN the mail!!!! I usually start thinking about a person's bday?event a long time ahead but it's always late!

Your card is stunning!!! I love the seaweed placement!! So cool with just a few tendrils. Beautiful waves too!!!

Pam said...

Glad that I'm not the only one who is late getting cards mailed. The one I made for my sister sat on my desk for a month after her birthday before I got it mailed. I like how your stenciled water looks.
