Lawncscaping Challenge #14

Hi, there!

I was super excited about this challenge,
because creating scenes on card fronts is my
favorite thing to do with stamps!
In a way, it's like telling a story in pictures.
You create this little world and populate it with
characters, and I always feel like maybe
they come to life after I leave the room.
Wouldn't that be something?

Aside from the pure joy of 
creating your own happy little scene, 
the winner of this challenge will also 
receive a fantastic prize:

When I sat down and began to brainstorm
for my Design Team sample,
I knew I wanted to stretch myself and 
come up with something I hadn't seen done
with Lawn Fawn stamps before.

But I was feeling tired, hot, and zapped of energy.

Looking through my Lawn Fawn stamp sets,
my eyes came to rest on the turtle from 
On The Mend, but as you all know, 
he has an ice pack on his back.
And then I thought, 
"What if I gave him something else to carry?
What if he had a friend who was feeling how I'm feeling?
What if he carried him instead?"

One glance at My Silly Valentine
and I knew I had to do my own take on the
classic tale of the Tortoise and the Hare.

I hope it brought a smile to your face!
Please be sure to visit the rest of the Design Team
and check out their amazing samples:
(who is taking a break this round due to health issues --
please keep Ashley in your thoughts and prayers)
and our TWO amazing guest designers 

Leave them some comment love,
and then high-tail it over to the 
details on how to enter.

We can't wait to see your creations!
