Whimsy Stamps - Party Snail

I never seem to have enough birthday cards on hand, especially cards that can be given to boys. I thought this image would be perfect.



As you can see, I tried my hand at real sewing on a card again. I think it is a lot better than my first card but I still need more practice. Since I can't draw a straight line or put two pieces of paper together straight, I don't why I though I would be able to sew straight. That just adds character, right? Also, thank you to every one that gave me tips & tricks. My thread did not break once while sewing on this card.

Have a great day!
