Pirate - Monday 11th February

Hello my friends,

I'm scheduling this, but I have read your lovely comments about our hens and their magazine debut yesterday - Anne, I knew it would make you smile! Thank you all! Thank you to my new follower as's great to have you join my little corner of blogland! Only 2 more followers and I'm at the magic 50 and will be sending out that 'candi' to one of you!

Please don't worry about me being stressed... I always seem to be 'chasing my tail' at the moment, but anything crafty is so relaxing and blogging takes my mind off all the other daily stresses I love it!!! !I just yearn to be able to craft many more hours, but we can't always have what we desire can we? I'm sure the time will come..please bear with me this week though, as I will be less in depth in my card construction explanations!

This is a card I made for a soon as a pirate theme was suggested to me I knew what stamp I was going to use...LOTV pirate boy!

 Sorry about the makes it look so drab! This is an 8x8 blank and the backing paper is from the Little Monkey Pirate Adventure download pack from Crafts-u-Print. I coloured the image with Promarkers, stamped and heat embossed the "Happy Birthday" and the '2' is a chipboard figure I had it my stash, coloured with silver metallic promarker.

Thanks for stopping by!
