Under the Sea…Birthday Turtles!

Hello Everyone!

Today’s Card is from a Color Challenge I missed out on…I just loved the

Color Combo and decided to run with it!

Here in North Carolina, we have a Sea Turtle Rescue!

It is at Pine Hill Shores in conjunction with the Aquarium.

Each year, a release is done for all the Turtles that had to be rehabbed for one injury or another. It is a big Event and everyone is happy to see the Sea Turtles return to the Ocean! So cool to watch…and they let the kids participate in the release!

What a great life lesson! People, we need to stop throwing our trash to the oceans.

We really need to stop injuring, either on purpose,or through our own carelessness, we need to stop littering our oceans. Think before you pack for an outing.


On to Today’s Card!
