Ahoy Me Hearties

Hello.  Welcome.  Today was a very happy mail day.  I got some lovely tag dies I won as candy at Meghan's blog.  I got a large package from my lovely sister.  Sharpies, a frog tea strainer (very cute), a lovely pillow cover and some knickers.  She says you owe it to yourself to have nice knickers and I think last time she visited she wasn't impressed with some of the ones hanging on the line.  It always makes me laugh now when I hang out the laundry.   I also got my June Card Chain Challenge card from Jan, all the way from Alaska!!  Love it.  Such fantastic colours.  If you want to see it and all the other cards which have whizzed around the planet this month you need to check out the full reveal over at Society of Stampaholics.  But before you go, here's the card I sent to Monica

I used a blue base card and added a triangle of MME patterned paper.  I ran a piece of embroidery thread along the top of the triangle.  The phrase along the bottom is from a Crafty Individuals background paper.  The pirate and chest are Kadoodle stamps coloured with Promarkers and some Wink of Stella clear.  The friendship phrase stamp is from Crafty Individuals and I added some blue rhinestones. 

If you want to join the fun at CCC this month you will find the link here and there is an added incentive this month.  In addition to getting a card there's also a chance to win a Hampton Art stamp set.  Win win anyway you look at it.
