"OOh aah, me hearties....

HOW MUCH FUN HAVE I HAD????? This card was just a
delight to make, the image is a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp and
this little character is called Billy Blyth, there is a great
challenge going on over at Kraftin' Kimmie's Blog (Create a
Scene) so I shall be entering this card into it.
There are some fab stamps in this Pirate range and I just love
them all!! I got my stamps from the lovely Nikki at the fab
Bunny Zoe's Craft shop and also that great skull charm,
which arrived the very next day! Whoopee!
I have made an easel card just so I could super embellish it!
The map has been made from DC Funky Vintage papers which
I have distressed using an emery board, lighter to scorch
and burn the holes (How much fun)!! and the smell mm
burning paper,
reminded me of our old coal fire! I added some thin gold paper
from a chocolate bar wrapping (extra energy needed)! hee hee,
placed it under the holes and between the card stock panels.
The trail has been made using red dashes with different locations,
Blood River, Serpent Pass,
Skullduggery etc; Do you like my little buried treasure

booty, all sorts of embellies plus the two gold coins were
stamped with the skull and cross bone stamp onto shrink
plastic, punched out with a small circular punch and
heated, these came out fab! The compass and flags were
printed from the computer, I have hand drawn the little
Pirate Spyglass and distressed it, all distressing has been
done using Tim Holtz Vintage Photo. Billy Blyth has been
water coloured and a little silver link has been added for
his earring! Plus I gave him a bit of eyeliner!! Think that
everything, hope you enjoy following the trail and you
find your pot of gold! TFL, Happy Crafting, Ooh I
have just seen over at A Spoonful of Sugar they
are asking for cards where you have used distress inks,
well this certainly has been inked and distressed, so I am
entering it into that fab challenge too, Sue xx

Happy St. Valentine's Day...

....Hello and happy Sunday to all you romantics; Love is in the air,
everywhere I look around....breakfast in bed? Yes, Cornflakes with
hot milk mmmmmm! I got me a beautiful bouquet of flowers, and a
gorgeous card too xxxx

This is my Valentine Creation for hubby,

I just love this Simon & Lola image by Rachelle Anne Miller
from Funky Kits it is perfect for Anniversaries, Christmas and
now Valentine's Day, I have coloured it with my water colour
paints and have used a great sketch by Tiet over at the
Sugar Bowl and will enter it into their challenge 29 which asks
you to also include three flowers, two brads and one button.
The flowers I have made using my off cuts of paper, I shall be
making lots more of these, especially on my Mothers Day cards,
they are so simple to make and use up those odds and ends of
paper, I think they look quite cool too! Papers are from MME
Life Stories, the Cherish tag is also part of this Kit which I purchased
from Bunny Zoe's Crafts whom I must mention as the service
was so prompt, my goodies arrived the very next day; she
also has some fab charms and my gorgeous personalised stamp
which I blame Debby for!!! after seeing her newly acquired goodies
I just had to have one!!

so go and take a peek at both of these sites where you will no
doubt be inspired.
Right, one last thing to show you, we have been for a walk this
morning around some beautiful fishing lakes nearby, so with
Swiss Army Knife in hand.... this is my creation
S + P in a heart,

and this is hubby's creation!!! well Tottenham were on and we had
to rush back!! Who says Romance is dead?

Have a lovely day, TFL Sue xx
