It's the Pirates Life for me


Life can return to normal this week now that Cyber Crop over on UKS is finished, trying to make a card to blog, DT cards and still join in pushed me a bit too hard and yesterday I just made my DT card but I'm not happy with it but DD was impressed.
So I did some colouring and bit of cross-stitch and just relaxed yesterday but I found out I won the Remains of the Day and Paige Tooner which is lovely cos one is scrapbooking and the other is cardmaking.
I kinda of cheated with my card today along with the Adventure Guy I coloured Mo's Pirate Captain Hugh to the same papers and I knew I wouln't be able to cover the jigsaw paper and when I saw this weeks Sweet Sketch Wednesday it would be perfect.
The square on top of the sketch I changed into small banners and one of the square has become a Skull and cross bones ( I had to search for the die wasn't where it belonged ) The anchor is a Marianne die and I faux stitched to bring it all together.
Today I've some catching up to do with some paperwork and other things that I put off last week then maybe I go and do some crafting maybe using a bit of pink.
