A Pirate Birthday.....



Hi Everyone!

I hope all of my NSW readers survived the terrible heat today! It reached a record breaking 45.8C (114.44F) in Sydney. Boy, was it hot!! A great day to stay inside in the air conditioning, doing some creating :)

My youngest son has been invited to a pirate party tomorrow, so I couldn't resist making a pirate card to go with the present.



and here's another angle of that cute little pirate boy that I coloured in with Copics :)



I'm entering this card into the following challenges-

Seize the Brthday - sketch and make a Masculine card (I've used the fussy cut out pirate as the middle shape)

Dream Valley Challenges - Anything Goes
Just Add Ink -Use a Big Shot on your project (the fishtail banner has been die cut)
The Kraft Journal - Use Your Scraps (the DSP is scraps left over from Christmas 2 years ago)

I love reading your comments! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!

He is super cute. Love your coloring too. Gee ... 45 degrees?? That is nasty. Under the air conditioning would be the only way to go.
