I've got CRABS!!

And I want to give them to you!! ROTFLMAO Well I just couldn't resist that!!

Anyway I was at friend LGuilds house yesterday to make cards and I used her Stampin Up Crab & Company stamp set to make some cards. I so fell in love with that little crab! I told Linda that I bet I could make a .cut file of the SNAPPY CRAB...and so I did!! I did use George for the .cut file. When I posted the original screenshot I got a lot of replies about how people would love to have the file and use on LO's...so then I got to thinking....Oh dang....it isn't resizeable because of all the parts and the angles!! So I made two others on the same file that were different sizes. The small measures approx 2" x 1.5", great for cards!! The medium measures approx. 2.5" x 1.75" and the large measures approx. 3" x 2.75". I also added a mat for the body and claws, because I am crazy about pop dotting!!

It will require a bit of hand doodling but not much. As you can see by the picture I doodled for the claws, the mouth and the eyes. I also inked a bit on some of the edges. Oh and I added stickles to one just to see how it would look.....Not sure if I like it or not. Anyway you can click on the picture to make it bigger if you want!! I think you can probably see the pop dotting better in a bigger picture. Oh and ignore the little mess up on the left claw in the picture. I did go in and fix that before posting the .cut file.

Well hope ya'll enjoy having crabs as much as I do!! *okie gives herself a headache from laughing at herself*

***UPDATE***
If you downloaded the file before 4:40 pm Central time you will need to delete the square around the large crab. I forgot to take it off when I was checking the measurements!! The file is fixed now and the fixed file is what will download *okie hopes*
