Sailing By, Little Crab

Coffee of the Day - White Chocolate Macadamia

Today's little crab is sailing by to say 'hello' to all of you! :) actually, he'll be sailing into the mailbox of one of our sons soon! I wanted a little something to brighten the day of one of our guys, and this fella seemed the perfect way to do so!


it's also Oldie But Goodie day over on the Bugaboo inspiration and challenge blog, so do pop on over to see what several of the DT members have created to inspire you. the big sale will soon be ending in the Bugaboo store, so be sure to grab those images you have had your eye on! the 50% off sale only lasts until the end of the month.


I have used the cutey 'Crab Boat' image on my card, in addition to papers from the Basic Grey Adrift collection. stitched cloud dies are by La La Land. it's a fairly simple card, but I wanted something easy to put into an envelope. burlap ribbon is from May Arts.

thanks so much for stopping by today! have a good one! :)
