Happy Mail PTW36

Who doesnt love happy mail? Everyone loves happy mail! There is nothing like opening up the mailbox to find a hand addressed envelope with what you know has happy mail enclosed. This is why I love the postal service so much! (not that they havent been trying my patience of late .. ) But, you cant beat that warm-fuzzy feeling you get when happy mail makes its way into your mailbox. In fact, just today, I got not one, but two happy mail suprises! One from my BFF, and one from my cousin who lives in Kansas! Sweet! So, those two suprises and the sketch challenge at PaperTake Weekly, inspired me to make this card. That, and I really liked the bendy arrows on the dp and how well it pairs with the 'snail-man'. hee hee "snail-man".. I crack myself up!

Hehe, you cracked me up too, Christi. I love how you colored him and the paper you used. I just haven't been inspired by that paper, but you're inspiring me with it. I truly am in awe over your coloring too. Nice take on the sketch, and glad you enjoyed your 'happy mail' from the 'snail man', hehe ;D
