Hope You’re Back On Your Feet Soon

This little turtle and matching sentiment make me chuckle! Such a clever little pick-me-up card. We all need a little humor in our lives. I used Stampin’ Blend alcohol markers to color this little cutie and the new Blending Brushes to color the Stitched Circle he’s sitting on. Both bring super easy color to this simple card.
