Happy Birthday Yvette!

Today is my good diva and blogging buddy Yvette's bday. Hers is just 2 days before mine, so we get to share a birthday weekend. Hope you're having lots of fun today Girlfriend!! And I'm sorry, your card will be quite late (as in, it hasn't been mailed yet!)

Here's a bday card I finally finished making today (and no, it's not going to Yvette!). I started this card about a month ago, made the waves and the sand and stamped the crab in red on red. My 4 year-old daughter declared that did not look good, so I re stamped him in black. Then it sat on my desk for about a month. Finally, this morning I pulled it out from under the pile and finished him off. I think he's cute!! However, do not expect to see any more of this card. I do NOT like cutting things out, and this crab is at the very top of that list!! From now on, he's getting stamped and watercolored, and NOT cut out!!!

Stamps: Crab & Company
CS: Cool Caribbean, Creamy Caramel, Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Lovely Lilac, Whisper White
Ink: Creamy Caramel, Whisper White, Basic Black, Cool Caribbean
Acc: Google eyes, mini glue dots, sponge



  1. Hi Jana,
    Love how you did the waves and sand - very neat looking! the crab is too cute, nice card! Have a great weekend, are you traveling again?? :)

  2. Boy, I know what you mean - I hate cutting out all those teeny, tiny areas! Anyhow, your card is great!

  3. LOL - don't worry about the card - it will be a nice suprise when it does get her :o) I did send yours over a week ago and I was hoping it would get there in time for your birthday.....hope you get it soon.
    Oh and great job on the crab card - I'm not a big "cutting out" fan either.

  4. Love the crab card and I too hate cutting out stuff, especially really detailed images like the crab! You did a great job and the boogly eyes on the clam make a nice touch!

    Have a HAPPY BIRTHDAY - your card from me should arrive soon!!!

  5. That card is too cute!!!

    I am off to post birthday wishes to Yvette as well!

    Hoping to get your card made tonight :D
