2 Cute Tuesdays - Life's a Beach!

Hey y'all! It is 2 Cute Tuesday time! I am super excited to be a part of the awesome 2 Cute Design Team and I can't wait to share all my crafty creations with you! For my very first 2 Cute creation I fell in love with this adorable little digi image, Happy Crabby! Isn't he just 2 Cute?!

I colored the lil' crab using my Prisma's and then used my Copic Atyou Spica Glitter Pens for the sand and some detailing. The patterned paper is The Paper Studio, as is the cardstock, and MME. I used my Cricut and the Paper Pups cart to cut the sun, which I inked with Studio G ink. I printed my sentiment on the computer using the Curlz MT font and then used some KI Memories ink on the edges. I am proud to say that this card was made entirely from scraps and various items from my stash, such as the jute, buttons, chipboard beach ball, & pop dots. I will say that I got the jute from the Dollar Tree a few years ago and it lasts forever! Definitely a great buy!

There are so many adorable digi images to choose from in Heidi's store and you can find Happy Crabby right HERE. Also, check out her Etsy shop too...so many awesome wood and cling mounted stamps, plus she is having an amazing sale. Make sure to check it all out at the 2 Cute Rubber Stamp Design Team blog and leave me some love on my first post if you get a chance too! Happy Scrappin'!

I am also entering my card into the following challenges! Wish me luck!
