Snail Mail

Hello!! Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend! We just love 3 day weekends over here! A little relaxing, a little fun time and A LOT of family time!! Today I am showing you a card I made for Joy's Life DT! Our challenge this week was to create something with an animal...and since Joy has such amazing animal puns on her stamp sets, this was really hard!! Ok the card was easy but choosing which stamp to use?? THAT was hard! SO many different options!! So I finally chose "Snail Mail" from Lots of Puns!

Now how many of you out there are going to argue with me that a snail is NOT an animal?? Let's just say that is IS an animal and move on! :) LOL!!

I cut the snail from "Create A Critter" at 3"....I chose my papers first so I would know what colors to cut my snail with. Lt pink, brown and lt green...I LOVE that color combo!! My snail is adhered to my card with an Action Wobble (LOVE these little things!!) I wanted me stamp in the upper corner but didn't want it straight across to when I placed it on my block, I set it on a slight curve! That is the great thing about clear stamps, you can bend them many ways to get a different look with your stamps! I used my white gel pen to add some details and some colored pearls and of course Stickles to bling it up a bit!!

Hope you enjoyed my card today and be sure to go over and see what the rest of the DT has done this week! :)

Until next time...
