You Arrr Loved!

I finally got to make a card with Ahoy Matey!! I was just watercoloring him last night because I was sitting in the bathroom while the kids played in the tub. I didn't think I would be able to use him for a card for months until I realized that Joe's cousin is turning one this weekend. Woo-Hoo! A reason to make a card with him! I really liked watercoloring even though Matey's Map seemed to take forever to do.

I added stubble to his face to make him look more 'piratey' (don't think that's a word).

  • Ahoy Matey stamp set (SU)
  • So Very stamp set (loved, SU)
  • Mellow Moss CS
  • Watercolor paper
  • aquapainters
  • Mellow Moss, Cranberry Crisp, Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa, Bashful Blue, and black ink
  • black pen for stubble
  • edge distresser
  • twine
  • pop dots
Everyone has responded for the blog candy except for Holly so make sure you get me your email so I can send you some runner-up goodies!

Hope everyone has a great day!!!

This is so darn cute! You did a beautiful job on the map. Hmmm, makes me rethink some of those kid stamp sets. I just might have to add this one to my wish list!

I love this pirate card. This is one of my fav sets too...it's so cute! AND the addition of his little stubble is so fitting. I really think you need to get a watermark, dear! Your cards are so great and I don't want anybody ripping you off. (My...I've become so cynical...what's up with that?!) Anyhoo...thanks for sharing these fun cards!

By the way I LOVE your blog so much. I thought I had linked to it, only to find that I hadn't yet. So, I added you to my list of fave blogs. :)
