HAPPY MAIL

We have been enjoying some lovely 'spring-like' weather here in Southern Ontario. So I thought it was fitting to use this new stamp set from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS called SNAIL MAIL.

I think he is so cute.....because I have the same job as him......and sometimes I walk at about the same speed as a snail. But he is enjoying the beautiful weather....as am I!

This card qualifies for today's Sketch Challenge over at SPLITCOASTSTAMPERS. I just flipped the sketch upside down...

I coloured in my images with Copic Markers twice and cut one out and popped it up on dimensionals. I used a scalloped circle to create my clouds.

In this photo you can see how I popped him up to give the card a little more dimension. I then added a couple of butterflies to complete my scene.

Card Supplies:

Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps ~ Snail Mail
Paper: Whisper White, Pacific Point, Costco DSP
Ink: Bashful Blue, Blush Blossom
Markers: Copics
Accessories: Scallop & Circle Punches, MS Butterfly Punch, Rhinestone Brads, Rhinestones, dimensionals, sponge daubers, Pacific Point Ribbon

Thanks so much for looking......hopefully you get some Happy Mail soon too!
