Say Goodbye to Mr. Jones, the Turtle


    One of my friends, who is also a customer,  told me that every spring the same turtle visits her backyard. She knows it is the same turtle because the markings on his shell are very distinctive. Her brother named him Mr. Jones. So here is a card in honor of Mr. Jones the turtle, LOL! 

  I used the soon to be retired Stampin' Up!™ set called Nature's Nest and single stamp called A to Z.  The ribbon is Pumpkin Pie 1/4" grosgrain, also retiring. Card base is Crumb Cake. I stamped the turtle twice, once with Always Artichoke and once with Early Expresso. The shell was cut out and popped up with Dimensionals™.

Love the story and love the card! Isn't it cool when something comes each year and you know it's the same critter? Love it!
