Today's card is for the hubster. I admit I have been a bit crabby lately. The stress of the house on the market is getting to me. I will be the first to admit that I worry, I get crabby, I worry some more. It's been a stressful 2016 to say the least.

Even though I'm doing both Halloween/Fall and Christmas themed cards I haven't given up on summer images. It's still summer here in the south and will be until mid October no matter what the calendar says. I used the Reverse Confetti Tag Me Too die to cut the tag from a Quick Card Panel (oos) and then the lower portion from kraft cardstock with a small strip of Pure Poppy cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Reverse Confetti Seaside set onto the kraft portion using Nautical Blue ink. I cut the tag topper from Pure Poppy cardstock with a die from the Hang Ups set, tied with Maraschino twine. The sand dollar was cut from Neenah Solar White cardstock using the Sand Dollar die, then edged with Pumice Stone Distress ink. After stamping the crab from the Seaside set using Pure Poppy ink, I cut it out using the matching die from the Seaside die set, attaching to the tag with foam tape. I prepared the card base by embossing lines at the bottom using my ScorPal, then attached the tag with a layer of craft foam.

I hope you have a great weekend.
