Sugar and Spice or Frogs and Snails

What are little girls made of? Sugar and spice and everything nice.

What are little boys made of? Frogs and snails and puppy dog tails.

Over at Whimsy Stamps we were asked to make something for a boy or a girl as our DT project.

My youngest grandson recently turned five. Here in Missouri in the late summer we have turtles all over the place. One was brought out to the house while he was here so he is continually asking me about the turtle. Whimsy stamps has Whimsy turtle so thought I would make him a card using the turtle.

I used a template called the Hinged card that I found here. There are a lot of templates here if you like different style cards.

I used some dp from my stash and as usual I have no idea who made it. It's probably a year old at least so it probably isn't made any longer. I cut out a large 5 from my Cricut Storybook cart and put it on the center. Inside the hinged flap I put Whimsy Turtle.

Don't you just love this turtle? He is so cute and so fun to color. You can find him here along with the other stamps available at Whimsy. I used my Copics to color him. The background is several different colors of yellows to try and achieve the look of the sun being behind him. After several shades I achieved the look I wanted.

The inside of the card is rather plain but didn't want to take away from my grandson looking at the turtle so left it this way intentionally.

BTW - after making this card he decided that he wanted to make one too but it needed to be like grandma's. Well, since I had used most of these papers on this card we improvised and I now also have a turtle card ..... lol.

Thanks for stopping by and hope to hear from you.
