Erin, this one's for YOU!

A friend of mine asked me for an idea for an invite for a 2-year-old's birthday party, using Crab & Company as the stamp set. Here's one I came up with for using limited supplies, a short amount of time, and with extra cuteness for the little one! Here's the card, Erin - I hope it's what you are looking for!

This one is a square size, 4.25" x 4.25"

Sets: Crab & Company, Sincere Salutations

Colors: Bashful Blue, Tempting Turqoise

Other: turquoise ribbon, dimensional (on the present only)

Marker Coloring Details: Shrimp-Cameo Coral, Crab-Real Red, Sand-Sahara Sand and Creamy Caramel, Shell on cake clam-Sahara Sand, Flame on candle-YoYo Yellow, Hats-Tempting Turqoise and Bashful Blue puff, Present-Turquoise ribbon

Erin, email me if you have any questions about this one. Everyone else, I hope you like it!

Turkey Day card.... SUPER late!

Well I promised I'd post this card, and unfortunately I have not been on in a while... but here's the card I did. I figure it's worth posting it anyway, even if the holiday is long gone:Quick explanation for the martini glass - when I was growing up, my grandmother on my mom's side hosted Thanksgiving at her house. There was lots of good food, family, and great memories. My grandparents were not big drinkers, but they did enjoy their martinis. So, I have fond memories of them making their gin/vermouth martinis with 2 or 3 olives... and that became as much a part of my memories as the veggie trays and lumpy mashed potatoes. Now my grandparents are long gone, but this year I had them just as much in my heart as always, so I had to include an homage to them in this years card which was only sent to those who remember them too - my family. I hope you enjoy it!
