Too Exciting!!  So how about more details on this adorable Lobster Card? 

The AWESOME Lobster comes from the By The Tide Stamp Set, and The words, you made my day come from the REALLY cute stamp set A Dozen Thoughts

I used a real red ink pad for both the lobster and the sentiment. 

The designer Paper comes from a paper stack called I AM ME.  Love that, and I love the colors and bright happy paper.

I came up with the idea of this card for my daughter's 3rd grade teacher.  Her favorite food is lobster, and this is the layout that came into my head.  Really happy design and I didn't even use the big shot!  Gasp!  :) 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you're inspired to stamp something fun!  

Much Love,

Selene Kempton
