Twinkling Tuesday: Army of All Things Boys Love

Good morning girls!! Today's Twinkling Tuesday challenge came from Nicky, Madelynn's younger brother. He loves frogs and requested cards that had a frog on them. Jessica assured us that if we didn't have frogs, he loved snails, turtles, etc just as much! I don't have a frog stamp and thought I might make one from punches but then I found this turtle stamp I picked up several months ago for my little man in the Michaels clearance bin. For just a quarter, I thought it was pretty cute!!

Here is the turtle that my little one colored while I worked on my card today. As soon as he saw it he said "just like the one at Nana's"; she has a little pond with a ceramic turtle by it. He had lots of fun throwing rocks in it!!

Here's my card - just a real quick and simple one this morning! My turtle was stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa and then colored with my Prismas and baby oil.
Here's a close-up of the cute little turtle!
I hope you'll join us this week and create something using a frog or the like! Nicky wants to see a whole ARMY of them!! (Did you know a group of frogs is called an Army....but a group of toads is called a Knot?) Please use keyword MTTSC20 when uploading at SCS or PCP. And leave a link over that the Twinkling Tuesday blog so we can check it out!!
Have a beautiful day! I've got laundry on my list for sure!!
