Cute Snails!

My God daughter's birthday card had to involve snails in some shape or form. She is the proud owner of Gary II  and made this video of Gary I having a shower. She has since gone to university and gained a degree in Zoology, where snails played a part too.  I used a penny black image and coloured it with promarkers before cutting with spellbinders dies and dusting with distress inks. The base card was stamped with the tiny snail (stampendous) and dusted also.
As you read this I am starting 5 weeks of school holidays. Thought it would never come!
Thanks for looking!

Such a cute card Sally, I love the snail you've used. Can't say I love these little fellas though, they get all over my plants and eat them.

Hope your start to the summer break is going well.
