snail mail...

Hello!  Welcome to the EAD Designs Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from the EAD Designs Blog, if not, you'll want to start there so you don't miss out on any of the fun!

This week on my blog, you'll notice that I'll be using stuff from my stash.  Good grief, I have a ton of stuff and even my 'older' schtuff I still love, I just tend to neglect it.

Today's shaped card is a great example of that...the papers are October Afternoon:

The snail is from the EAD Designs Good Times Vinyl set:


I've been having fun stitching through my alpha sentiments:)

I was inspired by the latest Inspirational card sketch:


Don't forget about the July Steal:
