Hope you all are well, here in the desert we have been having some Extremely hot
weather but by Thursday we are supposed to be under 113 Yipeee! Well anyways onto
the challenge. This week at Tuesday Throwdown we have a very fun challenge,
it is....Punny Sentiments. It has some very funny possibilities :)

When I saw the image choices I knew what I would do.
One day when Dr. was a little grumpy his granddaughter said to her Gramma
well he's a crabby cake today. It has become a office joke, so now we tease Dr,
OH crabby cakes needs some chocolate. S000 I just had to use that crab :)

I water colored the crab and added some beach sand around him
then matted on the pale blue.
The dp had lots of swirls in it so reminded me of water.
The fish net was made from some recycled netting from a veggie bag.

The shells were stamped with versamark and embossed with several
colors, cut out and foam dotted on. The top shells are some small
ones my grandson and I picked up while I was visiting them.
Be sure to stop by to see the teams fun cards will
get a good chuckle!

Fabulous, Davi! Love what you did with this crab and the shells. Good use of that recycled netting, too. I've done that one before. :-)
Good story from the office to go along. Fun card!!

Martha said...

Amazing card! Your story from the office fit perfectly and your coloring of the crab and all the details are perfect for this card. Your choice of blue "water looking" paper, the embossed shells and the netting, and even the small real ones all work together in a fantastic design. Made me smile!

Love and blessings, Martha
