Happy Summer Mailers

A few cards created in celebration of Summer. Tell me who does not love the Red White and Blue, and cute little crabs :)
For these two cards I used two cartridges. First, Pack your Bags. A new summer cartridge that the Anchor stamp was cut from.  The second cartridge was Create a Critter. The obvious cut, that sweet little crab. I used Peachy Keen to stamp his happy face. 
The not so obvious cut... the STARFISH ! YEPPERS these little starfish were cut using Create a Critter, and after a bit of shaping, coloring and a sprinkle of glitter to give it that wet sandy look I think they look almost real. A bit more practice and ill have a handfull sitting ready for some overdue scrapbook pages sitting in my round to it pile. :)
Happy Summer all!
and a dream of beautiful ocean side, feet in the sand and cold drink in the hand moments.

I have entered these into the BBTB2 Starfish Challenge :)
