Alright, lets get going this morning! Stamp club was on Tuesday and we did some really neat stuff. I want to share with you this morning a card from Crab & Company out of the Spring Mini. This set is so cute! There are lots of possibilities with this set...from birthday's to Christmas you can make it all! Clearly you can see that this is a birthday card. What is different about it is the the Real Red piece of cardstock opens from the left and then the Bashful Blue underneath opens from the right and inside it says...a pinch to grow an inch. It is very cute and really not so hard to make. Here is what I used to make this card. Stamps: Crab & Company, Sandy Shells Wheel. Cardstock: Ballet Blue, Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Real Red. Ink: Stazon Brown, Real Red, Creamy Caramel. Accessories: 1/8" punch, Markers, Red Gingham Ribbon, and stickles.

And, I'll show one more. I call this one Punchy Butterfly. This was a really simple but cute card made with three of our punches. The large and small oval punches and the word window punch. The idea for this came from my friend Pammella. She made a card like this at a stamp class that she went to in Hawaii. Stamps: Polka Dots and Petals (Spring Mini) and Curvy Verses. Cardstock: Almost Amethyst, Lovely Lilac, Whisper White, Close to Cocoa, and So Saffron. Ink: Almost Amethyst, Lovely Lilac, and some Close to Cocoa (on the butterfly body). Accessories: Both Oval Punches, Word Window Punch.

I'm doing a butterfly rotation at Sunday school (and how a butterfly can teach us about lent) and I think this would be a great thank you card for the teachers when we are all done. Since they are so easy to make I'll have to do it for sure!

Okay, everyone...kiddo is up so I must run. Once again, I have a busy day in front of me.

Have a great day! :0)

I'm finally back! I'm hoping to post something on my blog today after stamp camp - I can't believe I scheduled a stamp camp two days after getting back in town!! I was just having trouble fitting it in anywhere else. Your crab card is adorable! Is there a pattern for those folds? I've never done one like that before!!
