I Treasure You

Good morning everyone. Today is day 6 on the road. Boy, they really need to come up with a mini portable Cricut! As I have mentioned in a couple earlier posts, I brought a few things with me so I could keep up with my posts. I had also crafted a few items quickly before I left that I wanted to share as well. One of them was this cute little card that would be perfect for a little boy for Valentine's day. About a year or more ago, I hosted a themed scrapbook retreat weekend for friends and family, A Pirate's Life for Thee. We had such a good time. I had a bunch of stuff leftover from making invites, gift cards etc. So when I saw this cute pirate boy from B is for Boy, I knew I had to did out that old pirate paper. Ironically,  the Cricut Cardz Challenge this week is to make a valentine's card for a child. Be sure to hop over there to check out the design team and other entries. There are some adorable things over there.


Here's how I did it....
Bazzill grey paper for card base
Pattern paper was was from a Karen Foster Pirate line
All other paper are scraps from my stash.
Coin and treasure chest stickers were leftover from my pirate them retreat
Sentiment from Scrappy Moms Designer Choice Stamp set
Pirate and all his layers cut at 3.75" from B is for Boy and adhered with pop dots
A bit of black ribbon and my gel pen for doodles
