This card was made for today's Teapot Tuesday Challenge. I don't really have any funny stamps or greetings down here with me at the lake. No clowns nor hippos (which was my first thought), but I did have this cute snail and I thought I could hand write a greeting (harder than it sounds!) I colored the snail with blender pens and ink pads. I used So Saffron and Bermuda Bay (stamped off many times to do the green grass) I so wanted to cut the greeting in an arrow shape but just could not figure it out! There is a snail trail added with Wink of Stella, but it is probably not very visible in the scan. I hope that Anne's husband enjoys the card and is up and around again soon!

Hand-writing a sentiment IS hard, I shy away from it at all costs but yours turned out so well, Kathy. And it goes wonderfully with the snail and her pretty shell. You did great coming up with a funny card from limited supplies. I find it hard even with all my supplies to hand!
