Baby Turtle

First of all, I wish you all the best for 2010! Our new year's eve was peaceful with just the two of us, but because our animals were sooo terrified we thought it would be best to stay at home ;-) Speaking of animals, I always found it very hard to find the right images for baby cards. I wanted to make one today and really couldn't find the perfect stamp, so I've searched on the internet and found this cute baby turtle from Littlest Petshop! I wanted to try something new and decided to make a Joy-folded card. It was easy to make and I loved to do it so maybe it is something for you?! ;-) Today's creation was made for: Dutch Dare Card Challenges -- Joy-folded card Charisma Cardz -- Celebrations! Cupcake Craft Challenges -- ***A Time For Celebration*** Paperplay Challenges -- New Somethings Stamp Something -- New Somethings Crafty Ann -- Something new Stampin' For the Weekend -- New Beginnings Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge -- New Beginnings By The Cute and Girly -- New Somethings Fussy and Fancy Friday -- New Somethings Roses on Paper Challenge -- Colouring with your favourite medium
