Turtle Tuesday....

Wow...the sun is shinning in Belhaven, Ontario. I may actually be able to attempt my run this morning and actually not freeze! We'll see! This little guy caught my eye at Stamping Bella. The stamp is called Love is in the air! I absolutely love turtles...how can you not just fall in love with this little guy! I actually pieced 5 different combinations of cardstock ( the paper pack is from Michaels) and sewed them all together almost like a quilt. I also got to use my new MS punch with the hearts. Last year they came out with an adorable punch with hearts and I waited to long to purchase it and they sold out. So this year I jumped on this one. Have you seen the new MS pansie punch? It is a must have I think. Next on my list!

Paper: Michael's- Cloisonne 36 Sheet collection pack (8x8)
