Friday Inspiration Photo Challenge

Yes, I know it's not Friday, but I needed to get the card on the OWH blog today.


I am using this card in my OWH Mid-Week Throwdown Challenge - Christmas in July.  Yup...some people celebrate on the coast and in tropical climates..so this just might be "the" card for that person to send home.       


Melanie, at Scrappily Ever After, has given us this colorful lights photo to challenge and inspire us and others to create a card.  One must plan early if going to participate in OWH (Operation Write Home).   Being a lover of the SC coast, I chose this adorable crab to create my card.  The crab was a free svg from Svgcuts.  I created the lights and santa hat svgs....those will be my freebies for today.  I used the snowflakes embossing folder, puff paint for the hat ball, pop-up dots for dimension, inking and some gold wire.

( Will post Santa hat later today...sorry)

ENJOY!!! Stay COOL!!!

  10. You're so creative. I had a hard time coming up with something for my lights theme.

    I saw these little crabs on a NC beach once. They were hard to see. My husband always noticed them, but they were in their holes by the time I looked. Really cute!
