Fun Card for a kid!



Hello everyone!

I would have posted earlier but a girlfriend of mine talked me into playing bingo tonight. Neither one of us won a dime! I tell you...it's nerve racking to be "in" (only needing one number to win) and your number doesn't show up in the monitor. *grimace*
I finished this card this morning and its a birthday card for a young girl. The stamp is a Whipper Snapper Stamp. The paper is from my scrap stash and the turtle is colored in with Copic Markers. I wanted to add a smile to my turtle but, I was afraid that I would ruin it. To make this lil guy fun, I added a pair of small google eyes. I'm a big kid at heart and google eyes still make me laugh! Years ago my husband brought me the ugliest card in the store for Valentines Day. *My husband has awful taste in choosing cards and he knows it!* The only thing that saved him from a series of eye rolls were the google eyes! I wanted to be mad but the google eyes made me laugh so hard that tears were rolling down my face. Well...enough idle chatter for me. I'm off to bed and I hope that everyone has a great evening!

I play bingo at my kids school bingo night. Everyone that goes to play has to take a prize. A woman takes a woman prize, boy takes a boy one and things like that. So every one is a winner. At the end if you didn't win, you get to go to the table and pick one.
Cute turtle with his googley eyes and love your coloring.

Omigosh, this is just sensational!!! Love it!

I'd play Bingo if I could win once in awhile ... I NEVER win at Bingo. I think it must be genetic 'cuz my mother never could win either.

Adorable kid card....I always fall short on the kids card inspiration so TFS. Bingo is nerve racking....I can never keep up and have to scan the screen to see the ones I missed.
