Ahoy and Avast!

19th September was our wedding anniversary.  It was also Talk Like A Pirate Day.  Which is mostly what Toad and I did on the few occasions I spoke to him during the day.  He loves Talk Like A Pirate Day.  In fact he sometimes does it when it's not the right day.  

Which gave me an idea for his birthday card:

I'd only half made one of these wibbly-wobbly (technical term) cards before so this was a challenge to say the least, especially as I didn't have a template!

This bit is A Random Fan - Pirate Adventure
I tried to make his hat look like distressed velvet, but it may just look splodgy

This bit is Whimsy (Crissy Armstrong) - Mr Gullible

Both images painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers are all Papermania - Ahoy There
Nautical dies are Die-Namics Sea Charms
Label die is X-Cut
Die cut letters are Memory Box Uppercase Typewriter
Stamped sentiment is Hero Arts

For a change, he doesn't have a clue what I have made so hopefully he will be suitably surprised (and hopefully impressed) on Tuesday morning.  I will let you know!

I would like to enter this in the challenge over at

Have a super Sunday everyone

Happy belated Anniversary. Fab card, love the images and papers. I had to buy another pack of those as they are so useful. It is a tri shutter card, love them but they do take a while to make. Xx

Sharon said...

This is fab and looks very complicated to make. I hope it is well received (it certainly should be!) Enjoy the rest of your day, at least the sun is shinning today!

It's a fab card honey and I can imagine the two of you talking like pirates all day. Paul did it to me, but it went over my head. He had to explain it to me. :0) Fab fancy fold too.

This is amazing! If Toad didn't adore this then I will eat my hat!
The 'wibbly wobbly' design is great - I've only done one like this before and must give it another go.
And how fab to tie in with Talk Like a Pirate Day - love the 2 images and your brilliant colouring too :-)

Happy Anniversary!!

Big hugs, Kat xx

You are an awesome wibbly wobbly card maker! I love that you put just the right things on all the panels. I think that is the hardest thing to do with these cards. Very, very cool!
