Snail Mail!!

Hi everyone!! Happy Thursday!!

I have another There She Goes sneak peek for you today!! How cute is this!!! This set is called Slow & Steady, and I just have to say, it is SOOOOO much fun to color!!!

I did ALOT of masking on this card in order to place the grass and the clouds behind the snail, and I just think it is so super cute!!! I colored the grass and the snail with Copic Markers, and I used a cloud template and a sponge dauber with Tempting Turquoise ink to create the cloud background. I framed the image in Rectangle Nestabilities and added a bit of piercing!

The DSP is Pink Flamingo from SU! and I ran my Green Galore center panel through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder. I added a double ribbon of White Grosgrain and added some Black Gingham Ribbon for a bit of pop!! I used my 1/4 Inch Circle Punch to frame the Green Galore brads on the bottom, and layered my sentiment on circle and scallop circle punches!!

The inside of the card features Holidays Galore, another set being released by There She Goes on Saturday!!! I don't know what happened to my pic of the inside ;), but I will put it back on when I get home from work tonight!!

I am going to get TONS of use out of this set...I always find it funny that the card maker in the family is always the one that sends out her cards late (blushing).
