CAS[E] this Sketch #254

Leigh Penner's first Sketch of the year is a beauty... I'm sure you'll agree...


I have been so housebound this Winter - by choice, mind you!  I feel a little like a mushroom ... but Leigh moved me, albeit slowly... at a snail's pace?  Oh you'll get it at a glance...


By now you've groaned a little, no doubt ... but I do hope a smile was rendered, too!

Let's go take a look at what my teamies have to delight us with this week ... thanks for stopping by - I'll see YOU in the gallery, won't I?

=]  Michele

Supplies:  E.H. Snailed it!; frame die from Altenew's Reflection Scrapbook Kit now on sale! Wood veneer paper from my friend, [thanks, Barb!]

I tend to nest and be a homebody during the bitter cold winter too. But not today baby...it was 61 and I was out and about at a whirlwind pace cuz old man winter is about to rear his ugly head again LOL!! Oh to be neighbors and be housebound together crafting away. A girl can dream right? Anywho...about this darling card. That snail is just too much fun. What a crazy cute card Michele!
