Sweet Sketch Wednesday # 85

Good Sunday Morning! Surprisingly, I find myself a little energetic this morning. Not that I got any extra sleep or anything, in fact, it was a late night last night (late for us is 11:30 -- very late) because my husband and I went to the St. Barbara's Day Ball, where my husband was awarded the St. Barbara's day award. She is the patron saint of the field artillary. 
ANYWAY ... on to today's post!
This cute little turtle is from the January Stamp of the Month at Clear Dollar Stamps! Not only is he adorable, but he can be yours FREE with a minimum purchase at Clear Dollar! The sketch is another fantastic one from the ladies at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. You can probably tell by now that SSW is one of my very favorite challenges!
