Lovin' the Crabs!

I come from a long line of fishermen. My dad, uncles and brothers all love to fish. I grew up down on the Jersey Shore and every year we would go crabbing. We would spend the day out on the water in these small rental boats. We would catch crabs not only with traps but with lines. We would drop a line with fish on the end and patiently wait for a nibble, then slowly pull up the line so as not to knock the crab off. These are some of my favorite childhood memories of my father and brothers.
So naturally, I was beyond excited when I saw this month's Club Scrap Boardwalk kit with the crab stamps and adorable crab charms. I could not wait to play!

I got the idea for this card from Pinterest. I stamped  the tiny crab from the  Boardwalk Jumbo Unmounted Stamps in Club Scrap ruby ink and then carefully cut them out. I took a white panel and drew lines with a fine tip sharpie. I used Ranger black enamel to make the dots and added some red rhinestones from my stash. 

Isn't he just too cute. You can check out the whole Boardwalk Collection HERE
