Snail Mail

Morning :)


Snail Mail. Remember that? Back in the old days, before e-mail and texts. You'd send someone a letter. And then maybe a week or so later they'd reply. And maybe a week or so after that you'd reply. Snail Mail Wryn, aside from being completely gorgeous, is a cute visual of a slower paced time, and reminds me of childhood pen pals around the world. Of course now you can chat to anyone, anywhere, anytime, at the touch of a button, but I  miss those days too.

While I reminisce about the good old days, why don't you pop over to Tiddly Inks? There's a new Challenge... Fall Colours and the TIddlers have been busy creating gorgeousness!

There's nothing quite like the excitement of the postie delivering a real letter! This is stunning babes, what a cutie indeed! Hugs xx PS. Did you sent the cake to the shed by snail?

OK I'm kidnapping you en route to Center Parcs so whilst the boys are paint balling or annihilating each other at squash we can get down to some colouring!!! LOL
Awesome colouring my friend, I mean AWESOME!!

This is simply gorgeous. Love the CC mushrooms, perfect with this TI image. I must try no lines colouring - I'll be happy if my attempts look half as good as yours! xx

Just been discussing the good ol days of communication with Maarit! I had penpals and still have some of the letters, so love looking back through them. Reminiscing means we *might* just be getting a little older!

Anyway, a simply gorgeous card! xx

wowie, what a lovely colouring, I really enjoy looking at ths, fab colouring as always and you made such a pretty scene, lots of hugs, Marion

Christine L said...

OMG - YOU reminiscing about the good old days??? I have far more of those old days to reminisce about!! LOL! You're a mere young'un... but you're right.... time and technology have moved on so fast... it's difficult to keep up - but it's magical to be able to talk and share stuff with someone maybe in Hawaii in an 'instant'! All which detracts me from saying how stunningly AWESOME your colouring is on this particular card...... (and all your others of course!)

Big hugs
Christine x (five sleeps to go.....)
