Take a Word - Mail

Who remembers snail mail?  My envelope takes a whimsical look at the days when we actually knew how to put a stamp on a letter and toss it in the mail box.
The background paper is by Lorie Davison.  The image came in two separate top and bottom.  The top half is from E-vint.com (altered and coloured). Stamp and snail Googled.  Address overlay by Createwings Designs.

  8. Sorry, Marie, you are not going to claim Peter Jackson, he's a real Kiwi, but you can keep Russell Crowe!
    She's certainly a 'first class' gal with her snail bra & skinny waist, love your style, Marie!

  9. I can see you enjoyed creating this one .... and some! Those addresses are a stroke of genius and crack me up.

    Since it's private and confidential I'm guessing it contains the pattern for that risque mollusc outfit as modeled by the first glass lady.

    You rock, Marie.
