A Turtle-riffic Day!

I'm celebrating today!  The snow is melting!!!!  Ok, so we are supposed to get another couple inches tomorrow but at least some melted yesterday.  But I think it's going to be June before the big pile that was plowed out of our driveway melts.  So since I'm celebrating - why not make a card that celebrates something- right?

This little turtle is part of the of the February Digi of the Month set over at Deedee's Digis.  It's called "Turtle-riffic Day"  Did you know that if you participate in Deedee's Monthly challenge - you get the next months Digi of the Month set for FREE?!  Who doesn't like free digi's?  The only thing you need to do to enter is to get the February set and create a card using it.  You can purchase the set for $1.25 here or you get it for free if you spend $10. 

Now with my card I have to confess that I really screwed up.  The sentiment was supposed to be diagonal against the turtle.  But when I cut the corner off the image - after I matted it - it was too much and the sentiment didn't go the whole distance!  LOL!!  So that is why the ribbon is there - to cover my cut - LOL!!!  It all worked out all...but I just had to share my mistake. Confession is good for the soul - right?


I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Thanks for stopping by today!  Have a very blessed day!!!!!

Snow hasn't melted here in a month, we just got another storm last night, 8 plus inches here where I live. I just finished shoveling.
