Fun Friday YNS - Handmade Reptile Textured Cardstock

Today is Fun Friday with Your Next Stamp. I created my card using Fhiona's Pet Turtle

I used Mojo Monday 242 for the sketch.

I also incorporated some felt clouds using our Puffy Cloud Die. The textured reptile paper I created myself in both brown and green.  If your interested in creating your own, look below.  I put together a video tutorial with step by step instructions. 

You get really cool shiny reptile skin :) 

So fun to make :) 

On a side note (and a freaky coincidence lol), as I was doing my blog post Kelly called me out to the yard and asked me to bring my camera. Lo and behold look what was creeping around my yard, a snapping turtle lol! 

It's been so hot here, we are in the start of a heatwave going into this weekend. As you can see he's very DRY! So since Kelly was watering flowers he decided to give him a bath to cool him off some. He seemed to have enjoyed it!

I never seen one in my yard before, so I just had to post these here since they are a perfect match for my card today :) 

Thanks for visiting!
