YOU WANNA WALK THE PLANK?

Well you might if you could get this new set at the end of it! Take a look at this sneak peek "Matey"! Well I love all of this months new releases from The Greeting Farm.. but this set Matey is my favorite! I think it is that soft spot I have for that cutie Captain Jack ;0) - But seriously this is a whole set of stamps that are all wonderful - me.. for my card just pulled out the Captain!I have colored with my Copics and then cut him out with my Fiskar's kraft knife. I even made his face just a bit dirty as do you really know a pirate that is clean?Man I am going to have to spend a whole day cleaning up my crafting area... first yesterday's Surfer Ian's wave paper - then when working on today's card I literally pulled everything off the shelves looking for this paper - I knew I had purchased this 7 gypsies pirate/treasure map paper - I had always thought I would make a scrapbook page about my nieces and Hubby's love of the Pirate movies - they do quotes to each other all the time - oh well I don't really scrapbook hardly any so ... the paper had a higher calling!

Because the paper was just so perfect I really didn't want to cover to much of it up - There is two pieces here the treasure map - then I cut the border off of a second piece, in person you can tell that is a large black ribbon across the middle above the cross bones. I added the four pieces of jewelery spacers with gold brads - and then one extra gold brad for the Captain's ear ring. I then doodled the edges with my Sakura Glaze pen. I also decorated the inside with scraps of the paper... duh forgot to take a photo of it.


You just must visit the Club Anya Blog and see some of the others Matey cards - and visit the DT for even more! There is a Virtual Stamping "Luau" is all set to begin at 8pm CST! We look forward to seeing all of you on the PCP page and Club Blog too for your official release and contest winners info.


Well that is it for me today ... running out the door - Vicki looks like she is wanting to wait until the weekend... so I am going to run a few errands as quick as I can this morning - I'll be back later to do my visiting -

HUGS and-
