I have coveted this crab for over a year now, ever since I first laid eyes on him. My sweet Mom purchased him for me while we were at the State Tournament. He just CRACKS me!!! (DOH! sheepish grin over the un-intended pun . . . )

I stamped him on those fabulous Fabriano Mediovalis Cards I found at www.impressrubberstamps.com , thanks to Lisa Spangler’s encouragement. She uses these note cards quite frequently, and I can see why she likes ‘em so much–they just look and feel so “fine” . . . happy sigh . . .

This design was what I’d call a “5 Minute Quickie”. chortle! You know how you hesitate, thinking, maybe “just one more” touch? I had to restrain myself from going any further and botchin’ it. I can do that pretty easily . . . ack!

The sand is accented with Sakura Stardust Clear pen, and the sentiment was hand-lettered. The little crab eyelet I found at www.rubberstampfun.com and have been waiting for 2 years now to apply to just the right design. I’m pathetic . . . ship me off to the nearest chapter of BHA–’Bellie Horders Anonymous.

ROTFL!

    Thanks

  3. I could use a couple of those cards to give to my husband. ;)

  4. I love the crab!! You card is adorable!! DH and I brought a plastic wind-up crab for my MIL from a Virginia Beach vac that looks EXACTLY like your stamp. It’s eyes go up and down and it scuttles sideways. We brought it as a joke souvenir, but she loves it and still has it over a decade later!

  5. Love the crab – very cute!

  6. Hot dog, Julie! You are just TOO awesome! :) Love the card … but I can’t believe that YOU would ever be crabby!

  7. LOL, too cute!!! Love the crab, he’s adorable :) I have that eyelet in my stash too, now I guess I’ll have to search me out a crab stamp! Thanks for the fun!
