Snailing by to say hi...

How about a little scrappy card today? I've had scraps of Mimi paper & cardstock at my desk for about a month now, and I'm one card closer to a clean worktable {well... sorta :) } Speaking of Mimi... I have it on good authority that there will be DOUBLE SIDED MIMI paper in the new catalogue! I am so excited, I can hardly wait for the end of June for Seminar!

Stamps: Criss Cross (Hostess Level A), misc. TAC sentiment
Have I told you lately how much I love my Mini-Kai scissors? They are perfect for cutting & paper piecing small images... that snail is less than 3/4" wide! I DID lop off his 'feelers' or whatever they are... NO WAY was I gonna cut around those dudes. I mean, I am a little OCD about some stuff, but I'm drawing the line :) I gave him a nice coat of laquer to make him shine after popping him up on foam tape.

What do you think?
