Ocean Pop-up ~ DRU Ocean Challenge

Wow!  Is it really the first of May already?  I love spring and the onset of summer and when summer hits, I always enjoy digging out my favorite ocean themed dies.  These new dies (they were new at the time I wrote this post up) from Elizabeth Craft Designs are my new favorites and just perfect for the new challenge that's starting over at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog themed "Seas The Day".
Just look at this over sized Oyster Shell Card with Pop-up die.  Is it sweet or what?  I added the sand crab from the Seashells die set as well as some Seaweed dies.

This is the inside of the card, using the pop-up piece of the die set.  I added an adorable little Mermaid along with more Sea Weed elements.  The treasure is also from the Sea Weed Die Set.  

Goodness!  So many wonderful ocean dies to choose from.  For your convenience, I've linked them all in the body of the post above and also below:

I also wanted to remind you that Dies R Us now has a sister store with warehouses in the USA and Canada called Didi Crafts They have Marianne Designs dies in their store all the time!

They will ship to both the US and Canada.  Didi Crafts will carry some of the same products as DRU, but most will be different.  Now our Canadian friends don't have to worry about huge taxes or shipping fees. How great is that!?!  We'd love for you to visit by clicking on the links above or by clicking here.
