Snail Mail

We have had a short fall of rain in N CA this year, but maybe we are catching up a little.  It rained a little yesterday and continues this morning.  Earlier this morning I was sitting on the front porch with the outside cat Cass, watching him the rain and the snails, Cass hates snails, he walks around them like he is avoiding little land mines.  Just to give you an idea of how crazy this mind works, LOL, I thought of this card and when I went inside, decided to do my hour with Sketchbook Pro. The background is one of my favorite gelli pulls, the snail was first sketched out with SBP and then to my ever faithful Cameo to cut out, I then hand colored with Copic markers, scanned in and again to the Cameo to cut.  Then did the simple word block with the Cameo also.  I have been clearing out our storage locker and found a couple of boxes with some really old cards, etc., and realized that all of my stamped images on them were hand-cut, I feel so blessed to live in this incredible period of time, the progress for our little habit has developed some amazing time saving tools.  Hope your week is amazing, send someone a little snail-mail this week. Hugs

I love how your mind works. It is an amazing creative mind never stopping to think up wonderous creations for us to see. The Snail Mail card is wonderful. PS, loved the story about Cass and the Snails too.
