It's a Turtle kind of Monday

Happy Monday all! Did you have a good Easter? We had a very nice weekend. We went to dinner with my Mom, Dad, Brother and Sister-in-law Sat night for my Birthday (it seems like it was a week long celebration). My Mom and Dad got me tickets to the Red Sox (really hard to get), and my Brother and his wife gave me GC to one of my LSS. It was a really nice dinner. Then yesterday my parents came up and I cooked a New England Boiled dinner (YUM), and then my in-laws came up for dessert. My hubby and kids were exhausted, so they went to bed, and I went to my crafty place, and here is what I made.

I have to say, for such a simple card, it took me forever to color the turtle. I must have spent 1 hour just coloring the image. Did I mention that I really like to color. Of course I couldn't just color the image, I had to color, cut and pop dot the shell. I feel like I pop dot everything. I don't know, maybe I feel like it gives it a little something. What do you think. Do you pop dot everything?

Well, I am off to school and I am hoping to have many cards done this week. I am shooting for a card a day. No test this week (amazing), so I am hoping to get crafty!

Have a fabulous Monday!

Stamp: Whipper Snapper
INK: Copics, and memento black
paper: SU cardstock
misc: punches,brads, and cuttlebug embossing folder.

Michelle, This card is coming your way!

That is fantastic, Kristen! Love this stamp. I had that on my list at one point too. You did a great job coloring and popping!

I eat pop dots like candy. I buy them monthly!

HB Kristen!! Your special weekend sounds like it was tons of fun. :D I LOVE this card that you've made! All of your efforts and coloring has truly paid off as this turtle is adorable! What a wonderful card to send to someone special, I am sure it's even more gorgeous IRL. TFS this idea! I need to 3D more often.

Oh Kristen this whole card is just TOO cute! The coloring is fantastic. I can't imagine living without pop dots, especially the mini ones.
Do you make your boiled dinner with corned beef or ham? I think I may have to cook one Sunday!
