Craft or Blog Everyday In June - Day 17

Hi Guys, 

So today is Day 17 and our theme set by Kairen is:

Day 17:  Describe your perfect afternoon OR Craft something that has an animal theme

So I have a double post for you today. 

My perfect afternoon is: Meeting with friends or family for a trip to the beach, or park with the dogs, and kids and have a good walk around and watch the kids playing, then on to get a coffee together and a good catch up. Once back home I love to sit and blog or get some ideas for my cards whilst my hubby is watching some form of racing, after a few hours, we will snuggle down with a coffee and maybe a cheeky cake if we are feeling naughty and watch a TV series, we are the kind of couple who can get addicted and watch one episode after another after another, not so much in the summer as we prefer to make use of the nice weather, after all we only get decent weather in England for a short period of time! 

I also decided to craft something that has an animal theme, I seen a card with this layout done on the "little scraps of heaven" facebook fan page and new I had to have a go with it. The snail is so cute and I think he could cheer anyone up. As per the norm tho mine looks no were near as good as the "original" one!


 How cute is he! I stamped the eyes on using peachy keen stamps, coloured them in with a white gel pen, added some pink to the "cheeks" and three white dots for detail, and a white strip across his nose! I embossed his shell and then left him natural so not to over load him. 

Thanks for stopping in today, don't forget to pop back tomorrow and leave a comment.


I have decided as well that  I will also do a little give away -  3 separate winners -

Prize 3 - Lili of the valley stamp to the value of £4.75

Hi Kelly

What a nice way to spend your afternoons. I love to craft in afternoons, I think I am at my best. Love the snail, really colourful.
