Snail Mail

Hello and happy Friday to you!
Are you ready for the weekend? I think my weekend is going to be spent in my jammies, playing in my craft room with an occasional break to read a book by the pool. It's been a busy week and I'm ready to relax with some ink and paper and maybe soak up a bit of sun!
So, I recently became a "club member" over at The Stamps of Life.  I've got to say, I really love the sweet little stamp sets that Stephanie creates.  They are just super cute and have some fun sentiments to go along with them. Last month's set was called "snails2mail" and this is what I came up with while playing with this cute set.....
I had just purchased this sweet paper from the "Fern & Forest" line by Little Yellow Bicycle and I thought the little gnome would be perfect with the snail from my new stamp set.

I paper pieced the snail with coordinating papers from the paper stack and added a twine bow.  The sentiment mat is from the Silhouette Online Store and I thought the postage stamp edges made it perfect for this card.
As I was writing up this post I realized that I never chose a winner for the stamp set my sweet friend Kimberly from My Craft Spot generously offered in honor of my Guest Designer Spot on her blog!  So, let's take care of that right now!  The winner is......

Such an awesome project! I just love the fun sentiment you used. Your glass jar is just beautiful and the card is the perfect compliment to it! Congrats on being a guest designer. Kimberly has so many fabulous stamps, the tiny tags are my favorite!
 Congrats to you Sukie!  Please send me an email (use the Contact Corner tab at the top of my blog) with you mailing address and the name of the stamp set you would like to have and I'll get that info to Kimberly.

A big thank you to everyone who stopped by for a visit - I always enjoy your visits and love to read your sweet comments.  I hope you have a wonderfully creative, restful weekend!
