Crab Boat


Hi all!  Gosh, it seems like forever since I crafted.  Last week we had some renovations done and we spent the week moving stuff, then doing cleanup and putting everything back in place.  Almost finished, except for installation of a new dishwasher and some odds and ends.  Boy, will I ever be glad when everything is done!

The card I am sharing today uses an adorable image from Bugaboo Stamps called Crab Boat.  It's this week's freebie!  I paired the image with a sentiment and digi papers from Doodle Pantry.  I will be entering this card in the following challenges:

Bugaboo's Stella Says Sketch 110 (SSS 110) -- sketch
Craft Your Days Away Challenge #45 -- All creatures Great and Small
Cards for Men Challenge 10 -- Kicking Back (must be masculine)
Make in Monday #89 -- Anything Goes
Inspire Me Fridays 58 -- Anything Goes

Hope everyone has a great week and many thanks for stopping by!
