Cancer/Crab Birthday and Cupcake Inspirations Sponsored by Jellypark

 Good morning, friends!  Yup, it's still hot.  They just updated on the news and mentioned that we'd get a break from the heat tomorrow - it'll "only" be 101 instead of the  105-107 it's been the last couple days and is supposed to be on Tuesday & Wednesday, as well.  Holy crap, that's hot.

Well, it's the season of the crab - the zodiac sign, that is.  Otherwise known as Cancer, this sign encompasses those born between June 22 and July 22.  I have quite a few friends and family members who fall under this sign, including my mom, so this card will definitely be put to use.  I made this for the:

I used a beautiful fun digi background stamp from Lily Pink Scraps (I had to buy all of the zodiac signs when I saw she had them, I just love them!).  I found the little Cancer sign/crab image online at Marcels Kid Crafts (free printable zodiac signs).  I added a piece of red webbing that my awesome buddy Glo sent me and outlined the crab's frame with some Platinum Stickles.

Next up is a card I made for the:

Cupcake Inspirations is being sponsored by Jellypark, and our DT was asked to play along with them this month.  I used 032: Pirate Digi Stamp (colored with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits) and 501: Pirate Printable Party Circles (pre-colored, 2" circles).  The background is digi paper from Tiddly Inks that I spritzed with Silver Foil & Black Velvet Smooch Spritzes.  I added a stitched ribbon and a skeleton key charm.  Peace.
