Who doesn't love Snail Mail!!

Happy Wednesday my crafting friends,

I have been having a fun time over Easter as the lovely Kylie has been staying with me. Kylie runs the challenge blogs Addicted to Stamps and Addicted to CAS and this is how we met. We became friends very quickly and then we had the fab opportunity to meet IRL. She came all the way from Australia to London to visit and we had a fab time. We also got to meet more blogging friends on Monday. Kylie's blog here has a few photos of our time together...a very special time and one I will cherish forever. And Australia beware I will be there soon!!

Back to my card for today:

I couldn't resist making this card when I saw this very old snail stamp. I have no idea where it came from but I was looking for something else and saw this and had the idea for this card. It just made me giggle thinking about it and so I had to do a little stamp surgery to come up with this CAS card.
I thought it was so fun for the 'garden' challenge at CASology and I am so pleased as I didn't have any ideas except flowers until I saw my baby snail.
And also I thought as it is still making me smile, it would be good for the challenge at Less Is More-makes me smile.
And finally the one layer CAS challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

Tomorrow is our new challenge at TIME OUT Challenges so pop back and check what we have in store for you!!

And a picture of Kylie and me crafting in my dining room on Easter Sunday...yes I am messy!!
