Today is the start of a long weekend and the unofficial start of Summer. It's also World Turtle Day and that seems as good a time as any to make a card that says, "Slow Down."
http://cardpositioningsystems.blogspot.com/2009/05/cps-116-sponsored-by-stamping-bella.html. I stamped the image twice -- once on the white card stock and once on the patterned paper. Then, I cut out the shell from the image on the patterned paper and paper pieced it onto the first image.
I mailed this card out to my niece Jenn. She LOVES turtles and is the reason why I happen to know that today is World Turtle Day. She is also eight-months pregnant and in need of a reminder to "Slow Down!" Yes, Jenn, your To-Do list can wait. Enjoy these last precious days before my great nephew is born!
