Ahoy shipmates!!

As soon as I read the pirate theme over at Simon says this week, I knew I wanted to enter as I had the perfect bear pirate from Pollycraft. He is called Cuthbert Yo Ho and you can find him here. After searching through my stash, I came to the conclusion that I must have used all my pirate themed scrapbook paper - disaster :-( . Not to be defeated though I googled pirate digi paper and found this fantastic set from The Creative Cottage called Little monkeys pirate adventure. I haven't used digital paper before, but I must say I could become a convert, I loved using this and somehow the thought that you can always print another sheet is reassuring if you make a cutting mistake ( I ususally make at least 1 cutting error per card!!). Image is coloured with promarkers, the plain paper is from the papermill shop, brads by Doodlebug and charm from Ebay. Pirate Cuthbert is entering the following challenges:
Simon says stamp: Pirate theme
Cute Card Thursday : Fantastic Sketch by Claudia
Pollycraft Monday Challenge: Let's have a sing song -
This has to be 'Sailing!' by Rod Stewart
PolkaDoodles: Father's Day/Male themed
Thanks for looking!!
