Har-Har Me Harties!

How Be Folks?!

Bit of a pirate theme here me harties, oh, don't think I can keep this up at this time of the day - 8.20pm over here, BOY I'm running late! Hubby been hoggin' the compy all afternoon, so I'm jumping on while I can before the kids go to bed.


I made this card and finished it this morning for a few challenges, so I'll make this a quickie. First, the layout, following a sketch from The Pixie Cottage, and a theme of 'patriotic colours'. Being in the UK I have used the red, white and blue of the Union Flag:



Next up at Creative Inspirations the theme is 'One For The Boys', and at Raise The Bar the theme is 'Special Guys'. At Polka Doodles the theme is 'Father's Day/Male' (hope mine counts) and at Simon Says Stamp the theme is 'Pirates'.


I have used elements from the 'Little Monkey's Pirate Adventure' kit by The Creative Cottage for this card, with just the ribbon bow as an added extra.

So there you have it! Time to nip off and put me sproggs to bed then folks! Have a great evening wherever you are!
