Fabulous Carol, love all the textured layers and your fab colouring. The snail? Although I can see the fascination of the size of it. Mmmm not for me - sorry.
Take care

Great Fat Square layout Carol. Such a cute image and your lovely colouring.

However, I suspect the snail is going to steal the show for this post.

Have a lovely weekend.

This is an amazing card, Carol. Using all these recycled items is a gorgeous idea and a very inspiring idea. The stamp is cute and your watercoloring great. Hugs, my dear friend.

Chrissy said...

Fabulous fat page Carol, love the cute image with her prickly plants, great colouring, and well, the snail, I suppose everyone needs to love something so who am I to judge, he is very cute.[ but I like the cat better sitting down there looking up and thinking mmmm..escargot..

Leslie Miller said...

Did you know Giant African Land Snails carry a parasite in their slime that is suspected of causing a form of meningitis? They're highly invasive and illegal to own in the US. Sorry, it just kind of freaked me out when I saw the picture. Your fat page sure is cute!

What a darling card, Carol. I love all the upcycling you have made look so great! I have snails in my yard, but thankfully not quite that big. The problem with the ones that visit me is that often times they eat my plants and flowers =(.
