Welcome me 'earties to our Talk like a Pirate blog hop hosted by
Gill  If you have just been wondering through blog land and landed on my beach then you are very welcome, but if you have arrived from
Alethea  http://lilodesigns.blogspot.com/  then you are hopping the correct plank!



For my first offering I have made a card using Craft Artist that I am going to send to one of my nephews. I started with a desert island background and added the characters and necessary 
accessories for a pirate! The photos show the front, back and inside of the card
I added gems to the treasure chest!










For my second project I have made an easel card. For the front of the card I printed an old map from the internet, distressed the edges with ink and tore and curled some of it. I cut out an image of a galleon and raised it up with foam pads. The pirate is a digi image that I printed out a couple of times and decoupaged.  The inside scene was created on Craft Artist and I used the treasure trunk as the stopper.








Hope you have enjoyed looking at my projects  and you can catch the next pirate here by visiting
