Hi there! Today I'm sharing a card I made using Jen Del Muro's "Sketch For You To Try" from February 6th. This is a very special month over at Jen's blog, i{heart}2stamp! She's giving away a HUGE prize package and also a chance to be her Guest Designer of the Month! MUST go to her blog and check out the details!! (Click HERE) You DO NOT want to miss out on this! 

Now...on to my creation:

Meet "Snaily HUGGABUGG" from Stamping Bella! Isn't she DARLING?!!!! I paper pieced the snail and the little girl's hat and then colored the rest with my Copic Sketch Markers. Here's a close-up:

While creating this card, I got to thinking about how much I love and miss snail mail. I mean, the internet is great and all---it's so fast and convenient---but isn't there a small part of you that longs to receive something besides junk and bills in your mailbox? I do! Every day (or three) when I head down the road to my mailbox there's this little glimmer of hope inside of me that there will be something special in there. Maybe today. Here's wishing you a GOOD MAIL DAY!!

Thanks for stopping by!

I agree, I miss snail mail too! This year I'm going to *try* to send cards out to more of my friends and family. Goodness knows I have plenty of them. ;)
