You're Swell...

Hi there!

It's that time of year when Father's Day and Birthday's sneak up on me...so having said that I had to get cranking and slowly cranking it is...I am finding it hard to sneak crafty time right now. 

Most of you know I tend to create more shabby layer upon layer cards..., but truly, I am an eclectic crafter...I craft by mood, and today I was in a fun and cute kind of mood. I did jump start my mojo with the current Paper Smooches Designer Draft Challenge, however my creativity got going with the scene, so I took some creative liberty with the sketch if you will! :-) The bones are still there!:-)
Here is what I have to share! 
The entirety of my card with created using items from my scrap pile. Sadly, I never make a dent in "said" scrap pile.  I started with a yellow card base (not even sure of the color name/brand as it was in the stash), and I added my striped patterned paper. (DCWV). I added some fun glitter ribbon to the top.  Next I created my scene on a piece of white cardstock.
I used Paper Smooches Surf and Turf...I had to use the Pelican because it reminds me of my home state of Florida. I miss home tons. Besides the obvious of missing my family, I am a coastal gal at heart! :-) I then added Mr. Crab holding the fun sentiment "You're Swell!
I die-cut the clouds and added a touch of white paint to them. Being a girl who loves buttons, I added a row at the bottom...all of which have been laced with twine. 

I hope you enjoyed my fun little share. I am joining in at: Paper Smooches Sparks. I added my pelican and cloud to the left side verses the right, and well, I needed another cloud and my sweet crab in there. :-)

This is so adorable. Also so Florida! We were So. FL residents for over 42 yrs. It was lovely for a long time, but we don't miss it now. (Miss our dtr who still lives on the other coast though). Loved all your buttons & just all the detail you put in this cheery card. You should enter it in the Snippets challenge here:

It seems to not matter how long I'm away from 'home', it is still home to me! We traded one coast for the other, so at least we're still near the ocean :)
I adore this card - so utterly cute & clever! and you know I'm digging the buttons! (get it? Digging, sand...lol!)
