This Crab's for You

Edited to add this card too...I love the ease of this sketch!

   This sketch is so simple, yet so versatile!   Thanks to challenges like this, my stack of OWH cards is growing nicely.   The Duty.Honor.Cards card drive ends on July's really cool...for every 1,000 cards OWH receives, a military family will receive a military themed scrapbook!   AND the deployed will have lots of cards to use to keep in touch with loved ones at home during the summer.   Every card helps!

  Summer..yes, it's summer.  Another 100+ degree day here, making me wish for a nice palm tree shaded spot on a beach with a cool ocean breeze.  Maybe that's why I chose this theme for my card..patterned paper from a scrapbooking kit from M's, new crab stamp from SU By the Seashore, kraft cardstock embossed with that big shell folder, and a hello stamp from PTI Mega Mixed Messages.

  Does it kinda look like the crab wrote hello in the sand?  That's what I was going for...

Thanks for looking!
