Welcome the weekend, right?  I have a lot going on today, but tomorrow…sweet nothing.  I love days like that.

Ahoy Matey!


I came across this paper a while back, probably thinking I’d use it to scrap a page from when my son was into pirates.  But that never happened.  I haven’t had the best success with scrapbooking although I have every intention of trying again…someday.  But as a card/paper crafting designer, I never know what’s ahead as far as stamps or pub calls, so I do tend to pick up odd sheets here and there, not really knowing if I’ll ever use it.  But look what I have…a Lizzie Anne pirate!!   And I had that one sheet of perfect paper!  I love when that happens! 🙂 

I used Copic markers to color my little pirate and although it doesn’t show well in the photo, I outlined him in gray.  The anchor charm is tied onto the card using black hemp that I’ve had forEVER.   Why I ever bought a pack of colored hemp is beyond me.  The only hemp I’ve ever used is natural.  It’s funny, the things you find when moving from one spot to another.  I had so much “stuff” crammed into one small space.  It’s so nice to have a spot for everything now…well, almost everything.  My room isn’t quite finished but it’s close!  (I’m still waiting for my project table….arrrrrgh!)

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you have a great weekend!!
