Happy Father's Day!

We do not live anywhere near the beach but I could not resist making this super embossed crab! I will be sending it out to Great-Grandpa for Father's Day. He is now living in a VA Home and I've been told by his nurse that he loves to receive the handmade cards I send him so I am sure this will make him smile!
