A Christmas Pirate

I am so excited to be able to play in the Octopode Challenge this week. The theme is "words." I couldn't resist digging out Capt'n Jack. I googled Pirate and Christmas and found this fun little saying - not exactly sure what it means, but the person I am sending it to will love it because she loves anything with this Capt'n Jack image on it. I am also entering this in this week's Dilly Beans challenge which is Anything Goes.

Ho, Ho, Ho and a Bottle of Rum (for the Eggnog right? - isn't that what a Pirate would say at Christmas?)



  1. Well dang! That image kinda looks like Johnny Depp! This is totally cute, and I love the soft subtle colors!

  2. I'm up to my ears in pirate talk. Went to GA this week to see my three yr. old munchkin and he is all about pirates and pirate talk. You should have heard him and my hubby talking it. Of course, he is more Jake and the Pirates than Capt'n Jack. LOL Cute card and sentiment, Nancy.

  3. Great card and cute sentiment. That picture always makes me imagine Jack Sparrow with that silly smirk on his face. Sure she will love receiving it.

  4. He he he the sentiment made me really chuckle Nancy, great image I like the papers and the flower.

    1. Grrr hit the wrong button on my phone. I new you had to be entering this into the octopode challenge and then when I stuck mine up I saw yours there.
      I love the colour you have chosen for the bandana and the way you have picked out the bg colour.
      Hope all is well? Mark.

  8. Hehehehe! Or should that be Yohohohohooo?!! Just love this!!

  9. Yo ho, yo ho!! Love it - one of my fave Octopode images and I love how you used it in this card design, fab colour scheme too. The sentiment is just perfect for this!

Forest Goodies and Other Projects

 Hello Crafty Friends. I just got the Stamperia Forest Paper and Die Cuts in the mail so I had to play with them right away.   I have a combo creation - journal page and card.  On the journal page I used my 6x6 Dina Wakley Journal and laid a base of gesso.  I then used Dina's pastel crayons and some SU! inks and stamps.  Also added in some TH Dress Ink in Vintage Photo since I don't know how to make anything without it  (seriously).   The eagle is a Stamperia Forest die cut and is coated with gesso.  Did a bit of stenciling and distressing to finish the page off.  I am linking this the the **Art*Journal*Journey* September Texture Theme (last day - can't wait to see what October's Theme will be).  The die cut and the little smears add texture to the already very textured page.   I love the blue and green together and was inspired to made a quick card for my Son-in-law who cut down some tree limbs for us the other day.  The paper in the middle is from the Stamperia Forest

A Martini, Peanut Butter Cupakes, and Art

Hello Friends. Today, I have an ecletic mix of drinks, dessert, and art. First, it's T-day somewhere in the world so time for a drink post which I am linking to Elizabeth's Blog - Altered Book Lover.  Last week we had a work related dinner.  When the waitress asked what I wanted to drink, I had a sudden craving for a martini.  I use to love them, but I guess my tastes have changed because I wasn't a fan.  I was a fan of the chips and dips though! And the day before, I brought my Sister's fabulous peanut butter cupcakes.  Mainly because I was craving them and couldn't ask her to make just one..... Over at **Art*Journal*Journey* Elle picked a theme of Books, Cats, and Tea (you can pick one, two or three of the items).  I did a Bible Journal Page in my Journaling Bible - Luke 13:24-25.  After a layer of Gesso, I took a Sharpie pen and drew the kitty, then the narrow door, and then colored the door with Arteza Brush pens. The verse was written with a Micron pen.  This

Milkshake Malt Porter and a Bit of Art

 Hello friends and Happy T-day. It has been hit or miss with me lately on T-day posts. The remodel of our house next door has taken our mental and physical energy.  I think a few more weeks and things will be on the contractor instead of us.  Hopefully I will be back to normal by then. My Oldest Darling Daughter asked if we wanted to come for dinner Saturday.  Translation:  go to the store with me and we will bring part of dinner to your house and you cook the rest.  While at the store, I saw one 6 pack of this fun milkshake porter so, of course, I bought it.  It smells wonderful (a hint of chocolate and a hit of malt) and has a light creamy taste.  I would definitely buy it again if I see it.  My son-in-law did not like it, but he is more a  Miller Lite fan.  Now if this had been a whiskey, he would have been all over it.  LOL.  Linking this to Elizabeth's blog for the T-party gang. Darling Daughter had tried her hand at dried pintos, and she rocked them (I will begging for a rep
