i sent your gift by turtle {lawn fawn inspiration week}

Welcome back to another day of lawn fawn's inspiration week!  A bitty set can still pack a huge punch - today we're showcasing "year two," a belated birthday set since lawn fawn released it a year late.  I love that.

If you send a gift by turtle, it's bound to arrive late...

I stamped the turtle, his birthday hat, and the gift onto a piece of white cardstock and then cut them out as one unit.  If you're like me and pretty bad at fussy-cutting, here's a tip (works for me, so it might work for you): I grab a pencil and lightly draw an outline around the image.  I can fix it so it looks right before grabbing my scissors and cutting on the line.  For some reason, cutting on a line is much easier than eyeballing an imaginary border...  just don't forget to erase the line when you're done!

I hand-drew a little arrow pointing down to the word "belated."  Nothing too complicated...

At least the belated present is glittery.  That should make it all better *wink*

I hope you like what I've created today!  Check out the lawn fawn blog for more inspiration!
