Crabby But Cute

I took a few minutes last night to get a card made for today.  I hope it doesn't look rushed but I do like how it turned out. 

I used a lot of product from our new Spring into Summer mini catalog that is good through the end of June.  I started with a base layer of Candy Apple card stock then added a layer of print paper from our Under the Sea paper pad.  Next I added a strip of Silver Sparkle Tape along the left edge.  This washi tape has fabulous sparkle that I just couldn't capture in my photo.

I love the new sea theme stamps from the mini and I used the Snappy Birthday Bundle.  I stamped the little crab on Whip Cream card stock but I used my MISTI and double stamped using Candy Apple ink.  The double stamping really gave a vibrant image!   I added some of our fabulous new Sparkle Silk and that really showed up in my close up photo! This stuff is so popular that it sold out immediately (but I did snag 1 bottle) and should be back in stock May 5. I used our Tag Set Steel Rule die and Pool Play card stock to stamp the text on.  What do you think of the sparkle drops?  They are called Summer Play Sparkles.  Again it was difficult to get the sparkle these have.

Our Break-Up Sale of retiring items and Clearance Sale has been postponed to start May 16.  FSJ is trying to make sure all the gremlins are out of the new system/server to make your ordering experience better.  I will post the 7 pages of product soon on my FSJ Specials page. About 40 of my stamp sets are being retired.... ouch.  But I know we'll have fabulous new stuff in our coming soon Inspiration Book that goes live July 1.

I taught my version of a Make It Class Friday morning and I just have to share this picture!

These are my "students"!  I don't think they realized I was taking this as you can see how hard they were working on their cards!  From left to right.... Angie, Teri, Pat, Johnna, and Judith.  You can actually see me in the mirror at the back.  This room is used for many things and I think Yoga is one of them, thus the mirrors. I now need to finish (actually start) some Bday cards for family then work on my May class.  I'm trying to come up with a title for it.... any help?  I want "??" for the Gents but I can't figure out what to use. If you have an idea please leave a comment.
