Just wavin hello Turtle Slider Card

Had fun creating this interactive card. Used Lawn Fawn LF slide die & LF stamp/die. Mailed it to my Great Niece in FL.

I'm fond of Turtles. When out of college in FL I helped rescue Sea Turtles. When my daughter was younger we found a Turtle in our yard, we carried it & released it near creek area of neighborhood park. When driving along one day hubby & I saw a Turtle crossing the street, we pulled over, rescued it and released it near the creek out of harm's way of the street. When hubby & I enjoyed a trip to Maui Hawaii we took a bus tour and the bus driver knew an area where there would be huge Turtles, sure enough where he stopped we got to see a huge Turtle on the beach.

Today, Michaels had a 50% off  coupon and they do not do that all that often. Scored 3 (had coupon on my app & had forwarded a coupon to hubby's phone) packages of Copic markers (Grays, Earth & Sea/Sky) at 50% off; first store did not have Earth so hubby drove me to 2nd store.  Tried out the Earth Copics on the Turtle.
