Little Snail and a Challenge

Well it is a coincidence as I made this card yesterday and then this morning saw that Lucy is having another challenge and this time it is stitching on cards. Luckily for me that can include faux stitching which is just as well as I don't have a sewing machine and also can't sew thru card very well.

I did my faux stitching around this large scalloped Nestabilities die with a Sakura gloss pen which gives a nice shine. Talking of shines can you tell I gave this little snail a shimmery trail underneath him with a Sakura Stardust clear pen? I used glossy accents for his shell, I do love glossy accents. Both the snail and flowers are from Hero Arts and the embossed daisies are done with a Sizzix embossing folder.

Oh yesterday was a good day. Thought I had a dentist appt and then half and hour before leaving I rang the dentist to confirm my time and they told me it wasn't until another month - yay!!!

Is it me or do these daffodils look particularly big?

Is it me or does this cat look particularly appealing?

Don't be fooled... she bites!

Happy Wednesday everyone!

What an adorable cat, and the card is also lovely. Great faux stitching.
