Snail Mail Thoughts

     If a snail is thinking of someone, is that a long, slow thought process?  :-D

     Our newest challenge theme at QKR Stampede this week is "Snail Mail" and we want to see cards with either a snail or a mail connection.  I've done a "Thinking of You" card with one of the most delightfully fun snails I've ever seen (Digi 16809 "Happy Snail" and Digi 11205 "Been Thinkin."


     Everything on this card came from the scrap stash including the white CS on which the image and sentiment were printed.  I used my ProMarkers (my 'go to' medium for coloring) on the image and then dug out my rectangle, pinpoint dies (Memory Box) to cut them and the double mats.  The ribbon may have come from Really Reasonable Ribbon but since those are scrap pieces, I can't be sure.  The blue flowers are also ribbon scraps.

Another fab card, Connie! That snail image is such fun and you must have great satisfaction from using all those scraps - my drawers seem to just keep getting fuller, despite me being quite good and raiding them for pieces first! Thanks again for joining in with my Bingo challenge this week at Passion for Promarkers and good luck. Lisa x

Oh! could this little snail be any cuter? I don't think so, Connie! Once again, I marvel at your incredible colors and shading - I wonder if I will ever learn to color and shade as well as you do? This is a delightful card in every way!
