I LOVE this snail!!!


This is my all time favorite snail image. I have a thing for snails, and am usually defenseless against a snail stamp! I don't remember when I saw this stamp for the first time, but it was love at first sight. It was some time in the last year, and the only reason I can think of now as to why I didn't buy it instantly is that it was right before Christmas or I had recently spent too much on myself to do it.

Well, I was over at SCS a few weeks ago and I was looking over the DT calls forum. I rarely submit, but I like to see what's going on, and I always go check out the companies. Well, there was Dog Gone Stamps. The name didn't really ring a bell with me, so I went to check them out and there was my favorite snail!!! So, long story short, I submitted and was thrilled right down to my toes to be chosen!! When Nancy asked me what stamps I wanted, this snail was at the top of my list, and it was the first one I inked up when my new lovelies arrived! I can't wait to show you what else I got!!

Dog Gone Stamps has a wonderfully diverse collection and it is growing! I'm really excited about more of their garden creatures, their Halloween stamps and their 1926 line. The stamps are beautiful, deeply etched red rubber and they come foam mounted. They are also very good sized. All the stamps I have are larger than I thought they'd be. I hope you have time to go take a look, I think you'll be glad you did!

I can see why you like this snail...he exudes a ton of personality! :> I have to admit, I'm a sucker for Halloween papercrafting stuff. I'm not sure why (its not my favorite holiday or anything), but I just can't get enough of it when it comes to paper crafting supplies! I'm off to see what Dog Gone Stamps is all about. CONGRATULATIONS on making their design team!! :>:>

Well first off, CONGRATULATIONS!! I had not heard of this stamp company so I am so glad that you let me know about it. I always lean towards the less popular of little known companies, Perhaps it is the little rebel in me, I dunno. So I am off to check them out. BTW, you did an outstanding job with fun little guy
