Welcome to Jenn's Birthday Blog Hop

If you are stopping by from Kristi's blog  you are hopping in the right direction. If you just happened to stumble upon my blog and would like to hop from the beginning please begin at Jenn's blog.

I am so excited to be a part of this hop. Jenn has lined up THIRTY FIVE fabulous ladies for this hop and I am honored to be among such talent. Don't worry you will have three full days (4th-6th) to hop. So grab a cup of coffee or two and enjoy.

As the title says it's Jenn's Birthday ~Happy Birthday Jenn~  don't forget to shares your birthday wishes with her on her blog. 
We had free reign to make anything we wanted for this hop as long as it had a turtle or turtles somewhere on it. Jenn LOVES turtles and her blog title Scrappin Lil Turtle even reflects that. 
I wanted to make her a birthday card using my Gypsy. 

I'm in love with shape cards just so you know....

Isn't she the cutest little thing? As you can see I placed this adorable little turtle on a circle card. There is a lot of texture in this card. I embossed the top of the circle card with Spots and Dots, the water with Divine Swirls, the dark green layer of the turtle with Swiss Dots and the light green layer of the turtle with Traffic Jam.
I also gave her some Stickle-y toe nails and lips and some pearl bubbles to boot. :)

I initially made this into a turtle shaped card but it didn't have that wow factor I was hoping for so I made some changes including mounting her on an Action Wobbler
I love these things. They really add that extra zing to a project. 
I inked a lot on this card as well. Most of the edges and and embossing is also inked. Next week I will share with you how I store my inks and inking sponges. If you know me/follow me you know that if it's cheap it's for me so you can expect a simple economical system. 

Your next stop along the hop is the VERY talented Nicole. Her project is sure to please and inspire. She's always got the cutest projects and she's such an inspiration to me all the time. 

What's that?!? You are waiting for the blog candy? Oh ok! For this hops blog candy I will be giving away a bottle of Aleene's Tack It Over & Over Glue. 
I use this glue to make my own glue dots. It's super simple and very economical. I will include how to instructions for the winner. To win this prize simply leave a comment with a way to get in touch with you should choose you as the lucky winner. You do not have be a follower but if you are inspired by what you see and would like to see more, please by all means follow. 

Again, I wanna wish Jenn a very Happy Birthday.
I hope you all enjoy the hop and find something fun and inspirational along the way.

Keep Kreating,
