Oh Crab!

Good Morning,

How was your weekend?  I am really enjoying summer!  I spent last summer in my basement with two broken ankles so this summer is pure pleasure to me!

I have two great-nieces and a great nephew that love to receive mail from me.  Today I will show you one of the cards that I made for them.

I got a little carried away with the embossing, LOL.  I also chalked everything with my Quick Quotes Powder Puff Chalk.  The sentiment is from Pink & Main, it is a stamp set that I won several years ago.  I just went over to Pink and Main to look for the name of the stamp set (which is "Oh Crab" by the way) and discovered that they also sell a Die Set to go along with the stamps!  Oh you know that went right into my shopping bag!  I really like the google eyes!

Here is the inside of the card:

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

‘The Old Year’.

The Old Year’s gone away
To nothingness and night:
We cannot find him all the day
Nor hear him in the night:
He left no footstep, mark or place
In either shade or sun:
The last year he’d a neighbour’s face,
In this he’s known by none
