Head over heels for you...Create A Critter Turtle

March 1st! Where does the time go? Tomorrow is March 2nd, which is Dr. Seuss' birthday. Anyone doing anything special with their kids for Dr. Seuss? I'm hoping to do a couple Dr. Seuss things for you, but that is dependent on finishing a card order tonight. If nothing else I will put together a fun web-based post about Dr. Seuss!

I think the turtle from Create A Critter is cute. Ok, ok! Which ones aren't cute?  I know, right? So, let's see. Today I thought I would share another cute cut from the CAC cartridge.

I cut the turtle and layers out...

I ran his shell through my Sizzix Texture Boutique. I also used foam squares to give his shell some depth.
What you can kind of see in the above picture is I cut his head off. /gulp. Poor thing. I regret having not done this post sooner. I believe there was some thinking involved to make the next step happen the right way. I'm very sorry that I don't remember or didn't take notes.

The card was going to say Head over heels for he needed beheaded only to get his head back in a different way. I still felt bad.

The sentiment is computer generated.

"Turtley in love with you" would be another cute one don't you think?

What crafty things are you up to? Thanks for stopping by!!!
