The Stamps of Life "Snails2Mail"

 The August Stamp of the Month for The Stamps of Life was "snails2mail".  I made two cards with this cute set.  There are lots of possibilities with this little snail, but I decided that my first card would be a get-well card, and the second one, a birthday wish.  I paper pieced both snails.  Cute, huh?
