Baby Crab Cakes

A friend of mine is having a baby shower.  This is her third little one.  She already has a little boy and a little girl.  And she decided to be surprised with this ones gender.  I love shopping for babies....but it was kinda hard this time.  She said she still had plenty of clothes from her other two children.  And trying to find gender neutral items is hard....especially if you don't want to go with the (much needed...but boring) diapers, shampoos, lotions, etc kind of gift.  So, as I walked around the tiny baby section for the third time at a local store....I finally stumbled across this cute little crab mirror.  I was debating if it was gender neutral or not and then I saw the crab clacker toy.  I just love when everything I decided that was what I was buying.

Next, I strolled over to the card isle.  Did I really think I'd find one with a crab?  Well, not really...but it's still fun to look at the over priced, mass produced, no personality cards on the shelf.  Not a one with a crab.  But, no I have an excuse to have a little "me time" in my craft room while I make a card.....cause the card has to match. 

The image is a freebie over at Dulemba's Blog.  And of course I need a matching gift bag too.  I actually did find a gift bag that had a cute crab on it...but it was just a little too small for the mirror to fit into.  Luckily, my pack rat, hate to throw anything away self had saved all the gift bags from my baby shower.  And there happened to be one in there that worked perfectly.  All, I had to do was.....make it match.

I used the same crab image as the one I used for the my card and bag match perfectly.

And, put it all together and what do I have?  Gift, card and bag all in a cute "little crab cake" theme.
