oh crab

i'm so excited to share this card! i made if for the challenge at young crafters unite: buttons!

i'm so excited because i like how this card came out, and i actually jazzed up the inside too! 
here it is:

i used the buttons like bubbles, and echoed that with the circle i punched out. it's supposed to be 'under the sea-y' :) ha ha!

the crab and sentiment are from paper smooches 'chubby chum pals' stamp set. he was just stamped and cut out. i colored in the eyes and the mouth with my white gel pen. LOVE that thing! :)

then...inside...!!! it's my favorite part! because it continues the sentiment from the front of the card, and it's a whole new scene!! ha ha!

say it with me!!! 
oh crab, that sucks!! i could totally see myself saying (a version!) of that to my best friends! lol!

 i paper pieced the vacuum from the 'squeaky clean' stamp set...perhaps my new favorite image! i used the 'beige' paper strip on the bottom to represent carpet, since most of my carpet is boring beige! lol

i just think this card would be great to send to someone who's having a rough time, and needs some cheering up! :) it makes me giggle!
hope it made you chuckle too!
