~To Sheldon~

I have been inspired by Kristii's Post to create a hybrid card.

My Shelby sketched her snail, Sheldon, for me to honor awhile ago.

Wow, what inspiration that lil' guy was!

We originally bought him a year or so ago, to clean up after Stanley, Shelby's African frog.

We were told these snails live only 3 months.

I figured there would be Sheldon 1, Sheldon 2, ...you get the picture.

Sheldon defied stats and outlived his mean roommate who was always caught holding him like a hamburger!!!

In fact, he lived for about a year.

It was BAFFLING.  

Shelby was genuinely saddened by his death, and I created these notecards with her precious Sheldon sketch.

I toyed with my Printshop to get the four colors you see.

had me think of circular items, 

which led me to finish THE SHELDON PROJECT in multicolors.

Thanks for stopping by and visiting. ;)
