Happy Monday! I can hardly believe that I got an extra card done this weekend. It has happened so seldom lately. And the good thing is that I just might be able to get another one in soon. My card today is a bit out of characer for me. I love to add sparkle to my cards but this one goes above and beyond what I normally do. But I just love the sentiment.

After I printed the sentiment I lost what file I had it in,but I am pretty sure it's from Ginger's House. I die cut it with Gina Marie Designs Cross Stitch Rectangles. The adorable little turtle is this month's stamp for the progressive challenge at Gerda Steiner called Hello Turtle Friend. It's hard to see in the photo but I made the butterfly sparkly as he is the turtle's sparkly distraction. I used some scraps of some glitter paper that I had laying around. The flower was a scrap I found on my desk from another project. The kraft card stock base was inked with three colors of distress inks (Cracked Pistachio, Mowed Lawn and Bundled Sage) using the Neat and Tangles Stars stencil. Then I added Eucalyptus Stickles to the stars, the butterfly and the word Sparkly in the sentiment.
I am entering these challenges:

That sentiment is kind of how I feel about retirement. I was going to tackle the world and do things that I never had time for. And then along came my sparkly distraction. You just might agree that our twins are pretty sparkly and a great distraction for me!

They have the bluest eyes and the longest eyelashes. I know a lot of women would give a lot to have eyelashes like these two have. Love them to pieces! Have a wonderful day!
