...A PirAtE'S LiFe foR mE...

...ok...not really...but it was a PiRaTe'S CaRd for me  :)

For Today's card I combined ChaLLenGes again...but only 2 this time...a CoLor ChalLenGe and a SkEtCh ChaLLenGe...that seems logicaL...and ReasoNabLe!!

CoLor Throwdown ChaLLenGe...


Sketch for this week...

The CaT's PaJaMa'S is hosting the challenge at card positioning system challenge this week, so I thought it would be nice to use one of their stamp sets...

...soooo....enough's my card...

I stamped and distressed the 3 panels of paper behind the main image...they turned out super cute, but you can hardly see them :(

The PiRaTe boys are a total crack up!!

I'm also linking up to TruLy ScRumPtiouS ChaLLenGe BLoG...where the challenge this week was DiStrESsing...I inked the snot out of my looks pretty beat up, old, and distressed to me :)

On a completely different note...I made a little tea towel for Connor's teacher who likes cats.  I thought I'd send in a little prize once a week for the month of OctoBeR...just because I think she works hard and deserves some TrEaTs!!

I used a Nancy Halvorsen Art to Heart pattern...I LoVe how his whiskers change coLoRs! :)

Here's the bag I put it in..It probably looks familiar since I just posted it a few days ago :) but I added that cute EmBeLLiSheD clothes pin that I thought was worth showing.

Thanks for looking!
Have a FaBuLouS FriDay!!
