Hitching a ride...on a snail!





Hi again...here's another card I made. I made it last week for my sweet friend, Sandy, who is recovering from a little "vacation" in the hospital. It's one of the Fairytale Tildas...sitting on a little snail. I just thought she was so cute...and would cheer anyone up!! As for the "recipe" for this card...I apologize for not writing down the copics I used...but take a look at those gorgeous flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts...in the U.K...I think my whole first paycheck may just get signed over to them! I get a little crazy with all the great online shopping!! Anyway...I hope you enjoy looking at this sweet little card...the stamped sentiment on the inside cover is from Stamping Bella...I almost died laughing when I read it...because it's soooooo true!! Thanks for stopping by. Pat

Hi Pat, this is just soooo deeelightful! What a clever crafter you are. I'm assuming that this card isn't 6 X 6! LOL
I know Sandy will thoroughly enjoy this card. Your sparkly dp is beautiful. The sentiment is outrageously funny! Great job...
Hugs,
Barb

Hi Pat! Beautiful card! At least Tilda won't fall off that snail, since they go so slow! LOVE those Wild Orchid flowers!
Tilda is well colored!
Hugs to you,

How cute! Tilda and the snail look real. I think I'm going to have to scraplift this idea. The paper is "to die for".

Hi Pat, My goodness what a gorgeous card you created!! Your layouts and attention to details are so wonderful. I have not seen the snail colored before, and have been hesitating to use him, but you have set a great example for shading and coloring. Great work.
