International Talk Like A Pirate Day Blog Hop

Ahoy me hearties!

Avast ye! Th' International Natter Like A Pirate Day!  Wha' a great day me 'n by bloggin' scallywags are goin' t' 'ave today!

Ye should've been t' Cap'n Beckie's Tale and now you be here.  If ye haven't been t' Cap'n Beckie's Tale, hobble on o'er t' Boatswain Gill's Tale and start from thar!  She be hostin' this fine shin dig!

Me hearties and me's task fer this Th' International Natter Like A Pirate Day was t' make a pirate themed project.  Here be me one:

'Tis a birthday card fer me bucko Tracy's wee lad, Reece who be goin' t' be 4 at th' start o' October.

I made th' card by makin' a 13x15cm easel card wit' white card stock.  I covered th' fore 'n th' base o' th' card wit' a beach scene 6x6 paper which was cut t' size, usin' double sided sticky tape.

I Then used pinflair glue t' attach a pirate ship, an anchor, a loot chest 'n a map t' th' card.  I got these images from a Card Creations Embellishment pack.  Thanks t' Cap'n Gill McCall, I was able t' print an image o' a pirate 'n colour in usin' Pro Markers.  I cut this out 'n attached it t' th' card wit' more pinflair glue.

T' finish th' card, I used gold peel offs t' write "Reece's Pirate Ship" 'n th' number "4" on th' fore o' th' card.  On th' inside o' th' card, I also used a gold Happy Birthday" peel off.

Th' next stop on yer pirate voyage will be Captain Anita's tale.  So go thar now 'n look o'er wha' she has made fer this hop.

T'would make me day t' hear wha' ye reckon o' me card.  N' remember!  'Tis mighty important t' leave feedback on all th' tales ye visit.  Ye could win some blog candy!  Jus' make sure ye follow Boatswain Gill's Tale 'n leave comments.

It be in me mind fer ye t' make a project wit' pirates in mind, ye can nah muck it up, so ye won't 'ave t' walk th' plank!

Wishin' ye all th' best on yer future voyage along Th' Interantional Natter Like A Pirate Day blog hop!
