The snail carrying mail is perfect for creating a smile!  In the age of technology a hand written letter is almost unheard of so this altered envelope will be the perfect presentation of something special. The envelope was colored lightly with a yellow water color crayon and painted over with a wet paint brush.  Tissue paper tape was added to the top and bottom and colored with a turquoise water color crayon and painted over with a wet brush.  The red scallop make a happy pop of color and whimsy.  The snail was stamped and paper pieced with designer cardstock. Doodling rectangles make it east to insert an address and a return address.”

I think this is so cute and Christy is right, who wouldn’t want to receive such a lovely envelope. I don’t think I’d even mind if there was nothing inside. :)
