CAS[E] this Sketch #276


Oh say can you seeeee… why it was really difficult to resist those stars, to make this into a 4th of July celebration?  I may come back for Second helpings - it has been ages since I've done that!

Today, however, I had another day at the beach … well.  okay. we don't have Blue crabs on our Lake Michigan beach, but a girl can dream!  For CTS #276:


These little darlings, and fun sentiment 
are from the EH Beach Lady set!
 

My rolling sandy beaches were made with Lil' Inkers Wood Grain die!
 
Now doesn't that just make you want to melt some butter?  and maybe make a card for our Challenge?  Hope so!

Super-cute take on the sketch, Michele! Those crabs are adorable, but as someone who doesn't like seafood, butter is not the first thing that comes to mind when I look at them :)

Love how your little crabs remind me of what we call our hermit crabs in our Oregon tide pools..only about an inch across! Fun die cut background and such a cute sentiment too. TFS Michele. Hugs..

That's such a cool, ripple-y, sandy beach, Michele ... so perfect for your parade of perambulating crabs ... cute and clever! Hugs, Anita :)

Jeanne said...

Brenda said...

Yep, that is totally where I would want to go with this sketch. lol Stars always make me thing patriotic. But I love where you went with this sketch Michele! Oh my, you have made me hungry for blue crabs! Which lucky me, there are around here, but cost a small fortune. lol Love the card my friend and love those cute crabs. Hugs, Brenda

I remember seeing lots of crabs skittering across the sand in Dominica. They weren't blue but otherwise just like these little ones. This is so cute, Michele, and you sure get great use from that die.

I can just imagine all these critters scurrying along the beach! This is adorable! And I would take Lake Michigan to the,ocean any day!
