If you have arrived from Nancy's blog you are right on track.

I was asked to create some goodies using NEW products, and was given the <<<NEW>>> Some Kinda Wonderful paper pack to work with. I decided to create a set of cards.  

Earlier this week I shared my fox let's take a look at the ADORABLE turtle card...the 2nd card in this 5 card designed workshop! :) 

Check it out :) 

I created this card using the pattern #21 in the Make It From your Heart, volume 1 how-to-book.  Have I ever told you how much I ADORE these how-to-books? :) They are my go to books for sure!! 

I used a NEW paper pack - Some Kinda Wonderful...check this bright & cheerful paper pack out!  Love it!!

I used 2 stamp sets in this cards creation too...
Some Kinda Wonderful - Cardmaking stamp set

and....Some Kinda Wonderful - Scrapbooking stamp set. 

Take a peek at the close up of my turtles....

I pulled out my "almost forgotten" watercolor pencils and CTMH's Blending Pen to color in these critters...what FUN!!  

Take a look at the "friends" image...

...I practiced my "stamp rolling" technique on this piece.  I think some of you might know this technique as the "rock and roll" technique...a GREAT way to bring some added texture and design to this card.  

I have FABULOUS news....the cardamking stamp set, the adorable one with all the animals, does come in a Thin Cut BUNDLE!!!  Wahoo!!!  That means, you can get the stamp set & the metal dies - which we call "Thin Cuts"....for a BUNDLE price of just $26.95!!!  Fabulous deal!!!  

If you haven't seen the NEW goodies Close To My Heart released on January 1, 2017...make sure to touch base with your CTMH consultant, or feel free to CLICK HERE

Stay tuned to my blog as I feature MORE cards I created using these 2 stamp sets!!  

That's all for today....thanks for stopping by, and I hope you were inspired to ready to go CREATE something on your own!
