Shiver me Timbers!


Hello again! It's almost the weekend... how time flies! I've not done much crafting over the last few days, and there's been no shivering going on as the sun has been shining lots and so I've made the most of the spring weather and done a bit of gardening! Hopefully in a few months time I'll be eating some lovely juicy homegrown strawberries!
BUT... I just couldn't resist having a little play with my new "Cutthroat Lizzie" stamp from Kraftin Kimmie, teamed up with the fabulous papers from The Creative Cottage Monkeys Pirate Adventure! I've coloured Lizzie with Promarkers, doesn't she look cool?! I made the little round "charm" using the accessory stamp that came with Lizzie, covered it with Glossy Accents and added the beads to fit in with the challenge at Kraftin Kimmie which is "Just Bead It". I really like how it came out, I never use beads on my cards as they seem fiddly but I just glued the beads using a strong glue, and to my surprise they stuck! I'm also entering my card into the Fab 'n Funky Challenge "It's all New"... my new element being my stamp and the beads!
Well, off to do a bit of crafting before I start getting withdrawl symptoms! Thanks ever so much for popping by today and hope you have a lovely weekend!
