1926


There were two main reasons I answered the DT call at Dog Gone Stamps:

1. THIS snail-one of my ALL TIME favorite images.
2. The 1926 line. I took this info directly from the Dog Gone Stamps website.

"These images were drawn in 1926 by Doris Folkman Summerill. The work and style amazes me, she did them all with a feather quill dip pen! What, no 005 Micron's ?! I did my best to stay true to the artists original lines. We hope you enjoy these images as much as we do."

I love these beautiful images, and I love the respect shown them by DGs's artist. It's a perfect marriage of the past and the present. I hope you will have the opportunity to go look at these beautiful stamps!

The supplies I used for this card came from Creative Cuts and More's Birthday Card Kit. I added the stamped image, some Stickles, a button and a couple of skittles. The gorgeous scalloped card is from the kit, as is the ribbon, flower, and glitter paper.
