Capt'n Jack

Now I am not sure if you will agree with me or not, but I think there is more than a tiny bit of romance about pirates, and I am of course talking about the Hollywood version with parrots and pieces of eight, not the sort that roam our seas these days.

In the films, there is always something quite dashing about the lead pirate, you feel you shouldn't like him but you just can't help yourself.  And then there is Capt'n Jack Sparrow, now he's the kind of outlaw that most girls would be happy to be stranded on a desert island with.  Of course it really helps that his alter ego is Johnny Depp - a little bit crazy, but more than a little bit handsome!

So where is this leading?  Well, in a typical squirrelly roundabout way, it is leading to a card of course.  Another of those cheeky little A6 size cards for you tonight.

This stamp is Pirate Henry from Whiff Of Joy
Painted in Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Matting layer is a First Edition scrap
Sentiment is Hobby Art
Ships wheel die from MFT Sea Charms dies
And three dots from a simple hole punch to finish

I'm a little bit worried about what Henry is doing.  I really do hope he is not attempting to trim
his toenails with that great big sword!

Hope to catch up with you over the weekend!

Hugs, Squirrel xx

Henry's tail looks a bit vulnerable too, peeking round the corner. :0(

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Hee hee! He does appear to trying to trim his toenails with that sword. Don't do it! It's dangerous... but then again, pirates do love their danger. Sweet card!

Kat W said...

Hmm, yes, he better not be trimming his toenails especially since it looks like he has fallen asleep...!
Great CAS design again and I am feeling inspired to try an A6 card...maybe!
Oh, and many thanks for the gratuitous pic of Captain Jack...always brightens my day :-D
