Jeannie/Vicki Turtle card challenge

I know that everyone probably thinks that I have dropped off the face of the planet. I am so sorry about that. I have been so busy with work and just my life in general. Well even though I haven't been posting very much Jeannie and I have still been talking pretty much everyday. She actually is my inspiration behind of this card. We kept talking about doing more card challenges together and that I needed to post more cards so I asked her to pick a cart and pick a cut and we would do a card. She picked a great one. I really love this turtle from Create a critter. I new I wanted it to be a friend card because one of our very first challenges we did was a card with a turtle on it. Anyway, I kept thinking about what I was going to do and I kept thinking that true friends would go to any means to see or help one another. that is how the turtle finding a way to get to his friend across the water came to me. Sure the turtle could have walked around the water but that would have taken too long. True friends go to whatever means possible to help their friend the fastest way possible. That is how I came up with the parachute across the water. Jeannie, you truly are a great friend and I would parachute across a lake to help you anytime...Thank you so much for getting me back on the boards. I have missed everyone so much. Hopefully my life will slow down a little so I have more time to post.
