snail mail...


Happy Saturday!!!

This is my 2nd post for today..make sure you pop over to see my Card Patterns project!!

I love Laura's sketch 34 and wanted to play along this week. I have been wanting to use this sweet snail image from the My Cute Stamps set, Little Forest Friends. I had this idea brewing in my mind and love the combo of My Cute Stamps, The Cutting Cafe and Friendly Forest!

Talking about The Cutting Cafe...make sure you pop over there today...Regina is having a special 'cupcake' sale...come on, who doesn't love cupcakes??!!!!

Isn't the Martha Loop Edge punch fun? Pretty impressive how it 'folds up' for storage...those peeps at Martha are smart cookies. The 'snail mail' is ala Making Memories tiny alpha stickers and I used a Stampin' Up punch. No surprise that I stitched around the red polka dot panel...it seems these days that a card doesn't seem 'finished' to me unless it has some sort of stitching on it.

Well, today is filled with 4 soccer games...oy. We're also hoping to get some more school clothes shopping in too...

Just a smidge of enabling...wanted to let you know that the PTI Pure Poppy buttons are back in stock!

I hope you have a fabbie Saturday...come on back tomorrow for 365 Cards Super Sketchy Sunday!!!
