A Pirate Says...

Tuesday already! My mom is leaving bright and early (as in...it won't even be bright out) on Thursday so I need time to slow down a little bit! I hope everyone is having a great start to THEIR weeks. As promised, I've got another card featuring Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker products to share with you this morning.

The MOMENT I saw these adorable little Craft Flags I thought "aaaaah, pirates!". Maybe it's because I have two boys, but I knew they were prefect for this card idea I had knocking around.

I pulled the colors from this little envelope that came with two sheets of cardstock stickers in it (Pocket Full of Stickers - Red Crosshatch). This was I cut off the top of the envelope and put white cardstock on the back to make it usable/mailable (inside a clear envie). Then I stamped this little pirate guy (from Stampin' Up!) and colored him to coordinate. The sentiment is from the same set, and the image on the flag is from Pink Cat Studio. I used one of the die cut borders that came in the sticker pack to embellish the card, along with this Halloween Cuttlebug folder. The silver balls are the Michael's brand - love these, they're such a good deal cost-wise and they work great!

Here's a view with the card tucked inside the envelope. Could that BE more fun??


Thanks for stopping by today everyone! I am off to work, hope you all have a great day!
