Moving at a Snail's Pace - LOL!

As promised I have a card to show you. I made this for the birthday of friend that I met on SCS and have had to privilege to meet in real life. Lindalee here is your card that is going in the mail tomorrow. Sorry it is so late. This is my first creation with a Doggone stamp. He was so much fun to color and even DH said he thought this was a neat one. It really is like pulling teeth to get a good opinion out of him. So I will take that as a real compliment. You can't see it in the picture, but I put some rain dots on his eyes to make them pop out a little. Again I need to go to embellishment school, but I just love this snail. His expression could be used for sooo much like what you may look like after turning 21 and doing the 21 bar crawl.

Mary - Your coloring is amazing! And I love the DP you used - perfect for our little snail friend! These days I seem to be moving at a snail's pace...I'm not sure I'm quite as cute as this little guy though - LOL!
