Market Street Crabby…take me away!

TGIF! I wish I could be at the beach with this lil crab :) He’s having a little party of one and a wave’s headin’ his way!

I used a little sandpaper to distress things, as well as some paper tearing to make the ocean waves coming his way. I was using up scraps to make the clouds and balloons – it makes for a bit of a crazy card but totally makes me think summer. (And I am soooo ready for summer, it’s been a long spring full of rain!) The letter stickers are from Studio Calico…I seriously need to start using my alphas or they’re gonna take over my life :)

Hope you have a great weekend…I’m off to hang with my stamping group tomorrow- HOOAH!

  1. The distressing really works on this card. I agree with using letter stickers. Could you give us some tips on how to use them?

  7. I love the way you created the “wave” coming toward him on the sand. The clouds/balloons in patterned paper was the first thing I noticed – and I like it.

  8. Oh, Sandy! I have a very large collection of alphas….. and I’m scared to use them! Maybe you can inspire me to take the leap…. or the pull and stick as the case may be.
