I have been playing with our new Turtle Friends Stamp Set. I love turtles. My Mom used to collect turtles and when I was younger I had a slider turtle names Shelly. I used to be a teacher and brought Shelly to school. She stayed in a center, where the children could see her. This was years ago before they banned them. Now when my sister and I see a turtle of any kind, even jewlery, we think of our Mom who is no longer with us.
So when I saw this set I had to have it. It comes as a bundle with a matching punch, but I only used the stamp set today.
See all the supply list and instructions below. It was really easy to make and would make a cute Belated Birthday card.
