YIKES looking at the supply list for this card, it's rather frightful because the card itself looks so simple!! Hmmm, just lots of parts to this simple little card!! Of course when this snail first came out, I just HAD to have it and now, I've FINALLY used it!!! I love how the mini-presents are mini enough to be stacked on the snail's shell. I was VERY busy with my Spicas and I did a whole lot of shading on the shell and then proceeded to goo it up with Stickles so alas, all that shading work is lost (but I think it makes me FEEL good knowing it's there...ahem....).
I pretty much finished the cards (I made 8 of them)....and decided they needed a bit of an "ICK" factor, so I grabbed my bottle of Liquid Glass (aka dimensional glaze) and applied a snail trail. Probably too much for some of my card customers but I seem to cater to customers with a more "open" idea of humor - yes, I think that says it all quite nicely, don't you???
In a wild HP know, the whole "at a snail's pace" thing?? I'm waiting oh-so patiently for Gail to finish "Deathly Hallows"...........I don't want to talk/email her until I know she's finally finished. Do you know very difficult it's been to NOT say anything??? I tell you if Patience is truly a Virtue - I'm filled to the rim with virtue.............................

Kathy I've said it before but I'll say it again, you are what makes the difference between a crafter and artist. The details is what separates you from the rest. Great job. You inspire me to be a better stamper.
