Ahoy me Mateys

Ahoy me mateys, I'll be Fish-Breathing Glennis here and thee be me challenge card for Simon Says Stamps Challenge.
Ok that's enough I can't even talk like a Pirate, I certainly can't write it and I'm not keen on my Pirate's name for which I blame my team-mate Chris who found a site where you put your name in and out pops your Pirate name.
Well if you haven't guessed yet the challenge on Simon Says Stamps is for Pirates, so if you have some of the new Magnolia Pirate stamps ,this is a perfect challenge for you and if you don't, any Pirate stamps will do.
I haven't made a framed window card for a while and saw one last week when I was blog hopping it was a lightbulb moment. I first made one a couple of years ago when Claudia did a tutorial on Papertake weekly.
Looking at my card now I wish I made another barrel but time ran out last week.
The pattern paper is Delovely by Cosmo Cricket, managed to get my hands on a 6inch pack, I've use the fab Cloud stamp from Hero Arts that was available to buy at Simon Says Stamps. The skull and crossbones is a childrens cuttlebug die and the charm is from Simon Says Stamps that have been waiting patiently for this challenge.
Don't forget there's a fabby prize of $25 to spend in the shop.
Today I need to get my head together and make some cards but I think my mojo is still in Wales!
