Barry's Birthday Turtle

I'd like to present to you my first ever digital stamp! WOOOHOOOOOOOH!!

 How CUTE is this turtle?
My friend Hadassah contacted me to ask if I could come up with a card on the quick for her boyfriend Barry's Birthday. (Say THAT sentence three times fast!) She told me he dug turtles and that he liked things "cute". (Even revealing the little stuffed kitty he keeps next to his bed...teehee!)
Ahem. Sorry, Barry.
So, because I didn't have a turtle-ish stamp, I went on a search and I found this adorable digi over at
Making Our Mark.

He is colored with a combo of Marvy Brush Markers, Copics, and colored pencils. The sentiment is from PTI's Round and Round set, and the HURRY! letters are just a printed font/cut/glue job.
(Is that cheating? I hope not! Cause I did it!)
The background PP is Basic Grey.

Oh, and I got a little help from my super-perfect, super-talented, boyfriend, Eric Maruscak, to add a bit of texture on the ground around the turtle. It was a perfect touch.

Enjoy your birthday, Barry!! I hope you take lots of time to "Celebrate Today!"
