Snappy Birthday, Terry!



Crazy busy around here this week - kids out of school, bible camp, basketball camp, getting ready for a trip to the West Coast next week, hosting a BBQ tomorrow, and in the midst of it, a birthday to celebrate today - my husband's! Happy Birthday, Terry!

Shhh, don't tell him, but I haven't had time to make something new, so I'm giving him this one from the ol' stash. (Would you believe I even resorted to purchasing a Father's Day card last weekend? Gasp!) The crab stamp is from Crab & Company by Stampin' Up. I stamped him on watercolor paper and turned him into a blue crab with reinkers and a water brush.

I'll be back tomorrow with a peek at one of Verve's awesome new sets. In the meantime, be sure to visit the Verve blog for yesterday's peeks and today's. As always, leave comments on the Verve blog for chances to win Verve goodies! And for more chances to win, check out all the release challenges. Join the Verve designers and fans at tomorrow's release party from 9-11 pm EST in the Verve Forum on SCS.

Happy stamping!

Oh, I know the problem I-make-cards-for-all-but-haven't-any-for-the-closest-family. And yes, once, I also sent Easter cards I bought.
It's seems to be the classic case of a cobbler without shoes :-))

Well, but that doesn't change the fact that blue crab is the cutest little animal you can give for birthday :-))

Old stash or not, this is one fabulous cards that needed to cone out. Truly, truly beautiful. I love how you CB the crab. Having this set sit alone, I better use it and CB the crab. TFS.

I love this card! It is just fabulous. At least your DH got a card. I made my hubby a Father's day card in early May as part of a challenge and tucked it away. With helping my daughter study for finals, I forgot to give him the card. Guess I'm ready for next year. LOL!
