September CATS

Catch up time!  Sharing with you my CATS (card and tag swap) for September.  I chose to use the stamp set Turtle & Co. #122870 wood #122872 clear.  This is the 2011 exclusive stamp set to help raise money for The Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC).  For every Turtle & Co stamp set sold, Stampin' Up! will donate $3 to the RMHC.  To date, Stampin' Up! has donate over $1,000,000.00 in contributions! 
For my card, I decided to use the Turtle and made it a shaker card.  I haven't made a shaker card is such a long time!  I embellished it with my Little Leaves (sizzlet die) and a flower from the Boho Flower punch adding pearls in the center of each flower.  I'm loving the new In Color cardstock Pool Party, such a refreshing color!  The sentiment is also from the Turtle & Co. stamp set.
Here's a closer look at the front of the card.
For my tag, I decided to use the scallop circle sizzix die.  Embellished it with the Litle Leaves and flowers as well.
Here is the adorable CATS I received from my September partner, Brenda!  Brenda is super talented and I just LOVE what she created for me, thanks Brenda!!  Be sure to check out Brenda's blog for more inspiration!
Brenda also included this too cute note pad she decorated with the Build a Bear die and accessory...thank you!!
