I've blurred the address on purpose to protect the recipient's privacy.

Here's a detail of my favourite bit - the snail ...


I'll find out what everyone else has done at the Plymouth Calligrapher's meeting on Saturday ...

Fabulous envelope and that snail is great. :o) That's one envelope that won't end up in the bin!

Gorgeous snail! I can see more of these individually painted onto a wall in odd spots, kind of mini-trompe-d-whatitscalled.
