AARG Me Sweeties :)

This weeks cupcake challenge from Hope Stamps is a good one :) I guess that next Saturday is 'Talk Like a Pirate" day....who knew!

Here's a look at the photo that Rachel picked for this weeks challenge. I love the one with the "hook" out the top- too fun!

I struggled as I tried to make my card this week, I don't have anything that says Pirate, I did have some of THESE and THESE fabulous Cosmo Cricket papers which have the same colors in it. And then I saw it....a stamped waiting to be used Edward Stamp from the Greeting Farm. At first I thought 'no...you can't do that' but I did :) yep gave Edward an eye patch!! used my Bic Mark-it and just drew it on. Then I had to come up with a fun sentiment so I pretended Edward was talking "Pirate". I added a little distressing with my favorite distressing ink ever- Ranger Distress in Old Paper.

Be sure to check out what the other girls did with the photo!!

We would love to have you play along this week! Make sure to add a direct link to your creation on Mr Linky on Rachel's Blog by Saturday, Sept 19th at 9 pm MT. If you upload to a public gallery like SCS or PCP make sure to use keyword CIC24 so we can easily find you. Remember, no cupcake stamps are required! I will post the Top 5 next Sunday!
