Got Lobster???

Yep it was a lobster. I saw this idea on Lynn Pratt's website in 2010 and have been waiting for the right moment to use it. Our dear friend Joe Rotella's favorite meal is lobster and what better excuse to use it! It is made with punches except for the lemons. They are from the Tart & Tangy Stampin Up set(now retired) stamped and cut out. The sentiment is computer generated on whisper white cardstock. I couldn't get the little legs on the lobster sides right so after a few tries I finally gave up and figured this was as good as it would get!  LOL

If you would like to see how it should really look you can check out Lynn Pratt's website Stamp-N-Design, her August 5, 2010 post. It's much better than mine!

Lee and I gave this to our dear friend Joe Rotella along with his birthday card I made using the brayer techniques I learned from a class I took from Michelle Zindorf.

 Above is just the card and below we set in a gift box of craft colored shreds. We can't wait to take him out for his birthday dinner!
 Here is the birthday card(sorry not such a good picture).

I hope you enjoyed the pictures as much as I did making them.

Later this evening I will post the new blog candy. Think Summer Fun!

Till my next post...
