As I was loading these pictures I noticed they are both reptiles. I made this card again using my pieces of scrap designer papers. but this time I changed up the layout some. I also added some criss cross stitching. I just used an Always Artichoke marker and made the x's. Then I ran it through the Cuttlebug folder and sponged the edges with Always Artichoke. The turtle is from Natures Nest (SU) and I used an aqua painter over the shell to pull some of the ink color around.
The other night we were out walking and came back right at dark and as I was coming up the front steps I found this friend waiting for us. Mandy used to pick up snakes without much hesitation, but this time Jim had to pick it up first and had it to her. It was a little red rat snake. They took around to the back yard and let it go in one of the trees.
