  1. Kathryn, I love how the puffin's beak matches the paper, and the addition of the U R on the turtle. Both bards are absolutely adorable!

  2. Your cards are both adorable! The striped beak on the puffin is very cute. The colorful stripes on the turtle card are very fun and I love the addition of the U R letter stickers. And I agree, the storage cards at Stampers Best are a great way to keep cling stamps together.

  44. I love how you colored the beak on the stud puffin - I googled photos of puffins and that is very accurate. Then to match paper to his beak is just amazing.

    Your turtle card layout looks like a great way to use up those wrangled paper scraps - may be giving that one a try!
