Snarky Snail Mini Birthday Card

Life has been super busy for me the last several months.  If you follow me, maybe you've noticed a drastic drop in projects and blog posts.  I still love creating but have had to shift focus a bit for personal reasons.  BUT that doesn't mean I am not looking forward to creating more regularly again.  I wanted to create a quick card for a friend and coworker and made this wee card to accompany my current (non-crafty) obsession, Eight Saints Island Time Body Spray Lotion, for her birthday.  (It smells like coconut beachy summertime.)

Supplies used:
Affiliate links used when available; I may earn a small commission at no extra cost to you.  These sales help me keep my crafting alive.
Sweet Sentiment Don't Hurry (retired, but they have stickers)
Taylored Expressions Big Grumpy - Birthday
Jaded Blossom Slimline Dies (to create card base)
La-La Land Crafts Celebration Layering Stencil Set

I watercolored our slimy little snail and fussy cut him out.  I love his expression!  LOL  Next, I took the scalloped layer from Jaded Blossom Slimline Dies and folded in half to make a smaller notecard.  I lightly inked the front in whatever residual ink was left on my pink, yellow, and blue blending brushes with the confetti/sprinkle stencil from the La-La Land Crafts Celebration Layering Stencil Set.  A bit of green was brushed onto the bottom and the sentiment was stamped in the upper right-ish corner.  A bit of foam behind ole slimy finished the card!

Also, be sure to check out the new release with Jaded Blossom!!  I shopped this morning to get these super awesome new gnome add-ons -- Fishing and Camping!  I grabbed the entire August 2023 release bundle because husband and eldest daughter love fishing and we all love camping!  (Well, myself and my mini me L love glamping perhaps.. LOL  But always the hiking!)  These add-on sets tend to sell out so be sure to grab for all your outdoors-loving peoples!
