I may be a little crabby.....

Hello, 
How is everyone doing?
I am fine, getting busy once again, kids schedules and activities. I also must have sucker written on my forehead. I sign up last night to be in charge of 3 marching band activities.  It is all good, anything to help make some extra money for the Marching band will help. Right?
Today's card is with a new image from Doodle Pantry, called Quirky Crab. He is a super cute crab on the beach. 
The Crab and the saying are from Doodle Pantry. The Smaller images at the top are from Flourishes called Beach life.
I have also used one of Arlana's great sketch for Sweet Sketch Wednesdays. It has been I while since I joined in with Sweet Sketch, the girls are so sweet and leave you the most encouraging comments. Hi SSW girls, happy to join in this week!  Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Heide, I just love your card, you've been as busy as a bee and soon as you got your hands on Arlana's sketch. Your image is great and I just adore your colours and I always adore gingham and embossing on a card. Awesome card and thanks so much for sharing it with us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. Good luck!!!

I can see one activity, but 3?!?! LOL You are a sucker! LOL But what a nice person to do it. Your crabby card is adorable. I just saw the same image over at Patti J's too. They make really cute cards. Nice job on this! Best, Curt

Oh, I tryed to post a comment earlier and blogger was acting up. Your card is so cute. I love the added little images at the top. Such a darling idea instead of embellishments. Your crab is so cute. I love your colors. Isn't it amazing what we will do for our kids...or grand kids for that matter. I just got home from a parent night at the school for my grand-daughter because her mom and dad are out of town. Humm...I could have signed them up for all kinds of things. LOL Anyway, you are doing the good mom thing. Enjoy them. Thanks for joining us this week.

This is fantabulous Heidi!! I love your colors--very beachy/nautical-y *Ü* And very cute sketch too!
Your kids are in marching band too? My daughter's first year of marching band was last year and now she'll be going into 7th grade this year and in both marching band and Jazz band! I'm sure this school year will be very busy!! Oh, I love the lazy days of summer :) Have a great year with the kiddos and fundraisers!!

The most adorable card Heide! I just love this little crab - he doesn't look crabby at all :) So creative to use the images and sentiment as the embellishments from the sketch. Good luck in the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge!
