Clean and Simple card

So I've been reading about CAS or "Clean and Simple" Cards on Splitcoast. Nothing new there, just new that I've been reading about them, so I was feeling like making one. I do love them so, but they are hard for me sometimes. If you don't have your details just right they just look blah. I don't want to make blah cards.
I think I did ok with this one:

The turtle is Tyson the Turtle from Cornish Heritage Farms. He was the Stamp of the Month ages ago and came with that awesome phrase. I colored him with copics and did the embossed border with my score pal.
I'm not done with my son Ethan's quilt. I think I should have done some easier pattern or something. It's not that it's hard just a lot of piecing and I'm sort of bored of it. Unfortunate for poor Ethan. (not that he's at any loss for blankets)
I have some new fabric. Actually all this print came to me as gifts! I won some as blog candy, then my mom's good friend (and mine too) Patricia gave me even more. So I'm thinking of doing a quilt with these. For what you ask? Well I don't know... For the fun of it? For practice? I'm going to do something where it would be nice for the corners to line up just right, for the pieces to be cut just right. I'm hoping to practice sewing a perfect 1/4 inch seam on this. When it's done I have no idea what I'll do with it. It won't really match any rooms in my home. So we shall see.
