It's a Shell-abration:


Wowza - someone get me some coffee!  I'm all glossy-eyed and staring at the wall.  Note to self:  blink!

This week StampFairy is sponsoring Cute Card Thursday's Something Scary challenge. 

Does Barry look scary in his lobster suit - probably not.  But he sure looks cute!


I've put Barry in a shimmery lobster suit though it is a bit hard to tell.  And googly eyes - come on - aren't those the best invention ever!?
Card Ingredients:  StampFairy digi, Echo Park papers, Recollections cardstock, Prismacolor pencils, Celebrate It ribbon, Creatology googly eyes.  Tools:  mineral spirits and blending stumps, sewing machine, Rectangle Nestie, C.C. Designs Bubble cutters.

I made this card for the following challenges:  Crafty Creations - Halloween spooks, Kaboodle Doodles and Tip Top Tuesday - Halloween, Tammy's Scrapin' Corner - Trick or Treat, Sunday Sketch & Stamp - sketch:


TOP TIP Tippy:  Even if you don't "celebrate" Halloween doesn't mean you can't make Halloween-type cards.  I used a trick-or-treat image, but got creative with the sentiment.  I don't much care for Halloween (gasp) and don't hand out Halloween cards, but I will be able to use this card for pretty much anything. I have someone's birthday in mind for this one :)

That's it for me today - have a wonderful Thursday!

Deanne, this is adorable! You are so good at coloring the bear fur. I swear it looks so puffy!! Love the coloring and paper piecing and no doubt perfect in his Halloween costume. Love that matching sentiment. Just adorable! :)

Love your card Deanne. The sentiment is fab. I'm not one for Halloween cards either. We just don't send them. Your twist on the idea is great.
