Slow Down

Today isn’t quite as beautiful here as it was yesterday.  But, it is still a beautiful day!  LOL  It is summer now after all!  I won this adorable image from QKR Stampede Friday and couldn’t wait to play with him!  His name is Smiling Snail, or happy snail.  I colored him using my Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils.  I did his rosy red cheeks using chalk.  I added some Crystal Stickles and some Glossy Accents.  The little birdie was punched last night to use on my previous card ‘Fully Returnable‘, but I ended up not using it.  I followed this week’s theme ‘summer’ at QKR and the sketch from Sundy Sketch & Stamp.  I used a Creative Memories punch to do the fancy corners.  I added some cheese cloth and a burlap bow.  The papers were from K&Company’s Designer Mat Pad called Abrianna.  I created my own sentiment for this one.


Here is the sentiment if you want it for yourself. Copy and save it.
