My Dogs Like You and My Turtle Loves His New Home

I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend! I am still looking for sunshine, but we did have a good day yesterday.  I made up little Easter baskets for everyone in the family, and that was fun to deliver those and enjoy some good Cadbury chocolate!

I think this image by I Brake For Stamps is so funny.  I have so many sentiments that would work with this guy - his expression is priceless!  That being said, my dogs like everybody!  :)  You can see their pictures in the right sidebar!

I stamped my images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored in with Copics. You can see the whole slew of cute kids here. Use SAVE10JUDY and get 10% off! While you are there, check out the awesome Wild Orchid flowers and Bo Bunny papers that Della is carrying!

And speaking of pets, take a look at my turtle's new home! My friend, Alex, bought Raph (my 16 + year old red-eared slider water turtle) a new terrarium, complete with waterfall and plants.  Plus, this awesome new food with raspberries and mealworms and shrimp (all dried, of course).  He is in heaven.  He has lived the last 16 years of his life in a 10 gallon aquarium, which was so small, and didn't allow for much movement.  He is a happy guy lately! (Phone picture, so kinda blurry)

Hope you have a colorful day!
