Turtle Time,

 Hi Everyone,

Im here today using the super sweet Turtley Great Stamp set for a couple of creations. 

I love this set. (But then I love all the sets that Gerda Designs!!! ) How cute is the turtle and his friends.

My first creation is a cute wee shadow box.

For my second creation I had a play with alterative colours for a turtle. So hes a bright rainbow guy.
 I added a wee party hat on this guy. Its from the Daschunds Stamp Set.  Love that you can mix and match all Gerdas set. They compliment each other so well. 
I watercoloured the background and then fussy cut the turtle out.  You can buy dies here that coordinate with the set though. 

Thanks for dropping by today,  enjoy your day, 

Love Hazel x
