"Love"ly Tear Turtle

~ Can you say MIA??!! I know...I'm sorry I've been such a blogging slacker lately. Between my mom being ill with cancer & treatment, starting a new job, and the busy-ness of life in general, I have found little time for papercrafting. However, I have squeezed in a few projects since I last posted on February 4th, and they'll be showing up on the blog soon!

My first post for today is this little guy, who was such a joy to make! I was in a "Love"ly tear critter swap, which challenged us to create a tear critter with the love or sweetheart theme. Most people in the swap made elegant bears with dresses and candy, but I found inspiration for this love-ly turtle from a pattern designed by Thick mulberry paper, brown and green ink and chalk, a heart punch, a black marker, and a white gel pen were all the supplies I needed to make this quick and cute little turtle packed with love!! Doesn't he look hug-able?!!!

Glad to be blogging again,
Jessica in Kansas

Yes It does look huggable. I love it! I really think the brown hearts finish it off perfectly!

I hope your Mothers is feeling a bit more comfortable! My thoughts are with you all as well as a lot of prayers!

I love my scrap chicks, too. I have such a hard time with the torn animals, but it is definitely a love hate relationship because they hate me :) I love your turtle. It is precious!
