Twofer Card Challenge #26

These are my two cards for the Twofer Challenge  this month.  It's been awhile since I have entered this challenge.  When I saw this umbrella, I couldn't help but picture some type of bug or as it turns out a turtle.  Usually, I can't think outside the box and just make two cards in the conventional way.But my little mind was able to come up with an unconventional way.  I have to explain that I can't even draw stickmen so to finish off the head, tail and feet for the turtle was a real accomplishment for me.  HaHa….

 Avery Elles's Weather It.  The turtle was colored with Copics.

  1. Two great cards Lin but oh my...your turtle card is flippin amazing!! I rarely think outside the box either, so I am just totally impressed by using the umbrella for the turtles body and I think your head and feet came out just perfect too! And how sweet are the balloons tied to his tail?!! And how could a red & white polka dotted umbrella not cheer anyone up?!! Two wonderful cards my friend!! :0)

  2. OMG too funny changing the umbrella into a tortoise :)
    Great Twofer.

  3. Yay! You should be very proud of your ingenious creativity this month, Lin! I love your conventional get well card with polkie-dotted umbrella, but your umbrella turtle really steals the show this time! I think your stenciling, grass, and hand-drawn tail, feet, and head are fantastic! So cute how he is holding the balloons! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #26! Take care and keep safe! Hugs, Darnell

  4. Look at you go, freehand drawing like that! What a fantastic Twofer, Linda! I would love a red polka-dotted umbrella like that! Your turtle is so clever and so cute with those balloons tied to his tail! Thanks for joining in the fun with us at the Twofer Card Challenge!

  5. Your drawing skills are better than you thought, Lin! Great turtle and a brilliant idea! I love that cheerful red polka dot umbrella too! Take care and stay well, my friend!

  6. These two cards are fantastic and I think you did a fabulous job with the turtle! Well done on both cards!!

  7. Your polka dot brolly is so cute and vibrant, Lin ... and oh my goodness, what a brilliant turtle! Such a gemius idea ... and so much fun.
