Thank you cards for Andy and Johnathan Hillstrand

Hello everyone!  Once again it has been too long since I lasted posted.  I cannot believe that it is already the beginning of September and Labor Day is here.  Where does the time go??  Even though I haven’t been posting I have been busy  making handmade cards and fiddling with some new ideas.  I think I mentioned this but last month I went and saw Captain  Andy and  Captain Johnathan Hillstrand of the fishing vessel  Time Bandit.    I had spent a little time with them a couple of months back so I thought I would just give them kind of a thank you card.  So if any of you watch the show you know what  the  Deadliest Catch is about.  So I was  thinking about doing something with a crab theme, but as I looked at a few things that I had,  I notice on my new Cricut Cartridge called Life is a Beach  it had something similar to there  skull and bones symbol.  So that is where I started.  Once I had found what I was looking for it was pretty easy from there come up with the rest of the card.  The skull and bone and the letters are from the same cartridge.  The Life is a Beach cartridge is a pretty cool one.  It has many different things too choose from.  After I printed the skull and bones and the words I just added some colored jewels in the eyes.  I thought it was a cute touch.   Let me know what you think of my new handmade cards and ideas.  I love getting feedback.
