Magnolia's Snail Family - Where You are Headed...

Hello Dearest Readers,

How are each of you today? Thank you for visiting my blog! I hope you like what I've created this week for the

Add an Animal Challenge

at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog! I thought about this card last November. I had the idea rattling around in my head for the longest time. Sadly, when I first thought about using the snails, I had the cutest, sweetest sentiment. Even my husband said, "Ahhh, that's so sweet." Well, by the time I walked from my desk to my craft table, I had forgotten it! I was so mad! Since last November, I have been trying to recall what I had thought for the sentiment. Arrggg! Grrrrrr! Getting old is a real pain in the tushie!

Here is my card featuring Hugo the Snail and his snail family! I hope you like it!

I began my card by using a Spellbinder's shape die. I liked the shape, and it worked so well with the rectangular shape of the image mat. I chose some papers I had in my stash that are in peachy pink, cream, and green. The image features six Magnolia stamps that have been masked to create the scene. My snails are Hugo, Small Snail, and mini of Christmas Snails. For the flowers, I used Fantasy Flower from the Fairy Tale Collection, Lazy Summer Flowers, and Summer Flower Patch. The images have been painted with watercolors.

I used an assortment of die cuts, inking, pearls, ribbon, and assorted peachy pink flowers.

Here is a shot of the interior:

Well, that's about it! I hope you like my Snail Family creation.

Chris, You have out done yourself. I can see why you wanted the snail stamps, your "Snail Family" featuring Hugo, Mrs. Hugo and the kids is adorable. Love how you have masked in the flowers and background. I see a family picnic happening. PERFECTION!
