Congrats on the New Nest

 Hello!  Sorry I have been absent for awhile.   Life has been a little too busy for my to enjoy crafting or post on my blog.    I have a few minutes this morning while I'm drinking my coffee so I thought I would take a moment to share a recent project.

My daughter's friend recently moved into her first apartment so I made this card using one of Tiddly Inks cute Wren images.  This is the first time I colored dark hair.   (Well, actually my second - I threw out my first attempt on this image.)  I think that because I am blonde, I tend to color blonde hair.  

We recently had a visitor to our yard, a female (I think) snapping turtle.   I think she was looking for a place to lay her eggs.   The first day we saw her we thought she just wondered off a little too far from the pond.  My husband and I were able to scoop her in a bucket and carry her back to the pond.  She was big and mad so it was a two person operation.  (Boy, she could really hiss! And I understand why they are called snapping turtles!)  The next day we saw her in our yard again.   That's when we realized it was around the time turtles lay their eggs so we let her be.  She scooted off into the underbrush and we haven't seen her since.  I hope everything worked out okay for her and she was able to get back to the pond with out encountering any predators (or well intentioned people interfering with her!)

Thank you for stopping by!  Take care!

Stamps:  Wryn New Nest digital stamp from Tiddly Inks

Papers:  Georgia Pacific white card stock, Paper Trey kraft card stock, My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline Fiddlesticks 6x6 paper pad

Other:  Copic markers, Paper Trey felt, Adorn It alpha stickers, Memory Box double stitch rectangle cut out die
