Snail Mail *sneak peek*

Hello all. I'm going to have to make this a quick one today. My husband is off to St. Louis this morning and my oldest daughter was sick (again!) overnight. Needless to say, things are going to be hectic!

Yesterday's card was the inspiration for this card. I thought making a snail on a postage stamp would be pretty clever (I'm not the only one; check out Jennie's sneak peek). For mine, I decided it would be funny to have the snail moving at a snail's pace across the card - can you see that? Then, I added a little snail slime behind him and added the year for the postage amount using numbers from the Cupcake Builder set. Add the sentiment across the top and drew in some cancellation lines and wham, bam, thank you, ma'am, it's a card ready to go!

Tomorrow is the day for these fun new images. Yippeeeeeee!!!!!!
