Happy Snappy Birthday!

I told you all on Monday that it is Kyler's birthday on the 9th (he shares it with Big D from SCS and Beate!) and that I needed to get his card done this week. And, it is so close to Easter this year...he is sooooo excited! Well, I did it first thing on Monday 'cuz I didn't want to feel rushed. Wanna see? Promise not to tell him? Okay...here you go! I got the idea for a blue colored crab from my blogging friend Dawn...she is always doing fun stuff with this set. I used my Cuttlebug with the Happy Birthday embossing folder for the Green Galore background. When I placed the 'snappy birthday' saying I put it directly under a 'happy' so that it says 'happy snappy birthday'. I'm not sure he'll catch it but I think it is cute! So, here is what I used: Stamps: Crab & Co. from Spring Mini. Card Stock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Green Galore, and Tempting Turquoise. Ink: Stazon Black, Bashful Blue, Sahara Sand. Accessories: Markers, Aqua Painter, Gel Pen, Paper Snips, Cuttlebug with Happy Birthday embossing folder, and a dimensional. I think the doodling on the crab layers really makes this card. To me...it just makes it more festive!

Alright, I want to mention again the wonderful stamp set that Gina is selling to benefit Autism. It is called "Love You To Pieces" and can be seen if you click HERE. Gina is trying to make it to $2,000 raised by tomorrow so if you are interested in this set...go get 'er now! You'll just LOVE the samples on her site! The link to her Stamps For A Cause blog is in my 'My Favorite Websites' section to the left if you are looking for it in the future.

Well, I hope you all have a thoroughly wonderful Thursday! See you tomorrow!
