A Birthday Card and Some Stampin' Up Blog Candy

For my Blog Candy please click Here

Good Morning,

Today I would like to show you a card I made for my son's girlfriend.

  

I made her this card because the last time she came to visit, my husband went down to our boat slip and pulled up our live well with three (kinda puny) crabs in it.  Sarah was so impressed!  She couldn't believe that we could just go and get crabs "from our backyard" of course this was just the beginning of crab season, now we have so many crabs, we don't know what to do with them all!  Another reason I love living on the Chesapeake Bay!

Here is a picture of Sarah talking to the crabs.

  So cute!  Thanks for stopping by today!  I appreciate your comments!

Hugs,

  5. How cool is that you can get crabs that easily. I like crab; as in eating crab. I like Lobster also. When I lived in FL or would visit my Dad in FL he would take me to a place that had tables with holes in center to throw the crab shell into. Bring on the hot butter.
