Snailed It – January Team Swap

This month, I’m having a ton of fun with the Snailed It stamp set. I cased this card from a demonstrator in Germany, Stefanie Droop. It just made me smile, so I decided that this is just what the doctor ordered, with all the stressy stuff in the news. I used Stefanie’s layout, and madeContinue reading “Snailed It – January Team Swap”
