My Pond or Yours?

Hello and happy Saturday!  Finally, the weekend!  We've had such a hectic week with lots of deadlines and extra things to do.  Some were fun (like a graduation celebration at the church last night) and others not-so-much (like having the fallen tree cut into sections and hauled away, new tires for the truck and a new door panel for the car...$1500 + $780 + $825 = $$$ yuck)!  The storm and big tree ordeal last weekend put me WAY behind in my prep for releases for Gina K, Gourmet Rubber Stamps, and The Stamps of Life, so all week long I have been struggling to catch up.  I am so happy to finally have a chance to sleep in and take a wee breather!  I might even take a nap this afternoon!

Today's card is another version of CPS 267 using turtles2love, brand new from The {Stamps} of Life.  This stamp set is a really fun one because you can use it so many different ways...there's an outline stamp in two different sizes which you can color or paper piece, along with four patterned turtle shells in each size.  I thought this sketch kinda looked like two ponds with a stretch of sand between them.  If you look closely, you can see teeny turtles stamped onto the background.
