Snail Mail...Sweet Expressions

You have to check out this sweet little set that Anna Wight designed for Whipper Snapper. It's called Sweet Expressions and you can find the link HERE. Everyone say HIIIIIIII to Anna, she's such a great gal!

I used the adorable snail and envelope along with the *snail mail* sentiment....one of my favorite all time sentiments to use on a card! I stamped the images and then colored them very quickly with Copic markers. I used my Copic color chart to find colors that matched almost exactly to my Papertrey cardstock colors of Aqua Mist and the new Plum Pudding. Is that purple just not the juiciest ever?? It's like grape bubble gum exploded onto cardstock. I looooooove it! Ohhhh, and matching polka dot ribbon!
Here's a closeup of the main images. So sweet! I cut them out with Spellbinder's circle and scallop circle Nestabilities die templates....lopped off half of the circle then attached it to my notecard front. The lined paper image is from Cornish Heritage Farms.
I think these little notecards would be perfect teacher gifts....or keep a little stash handy for quick thank you notes.
Okay, I've got girls waiting to leave to go swimming at Grandma's pool in town. 7 girls for a slumber party........um, I mean sleepover......apparently "slumber party" is SOOO yesterday to a bunch of 11 and 12 year old girls! Josey turns 11 on July 4th but her party is today! Woohoo, great fun!!!!!!! Have a great weekend everyone!
