1 -2 -3

Good morning everyone and hope you are ok and having a nice start to the weekend!

We have a new challenge over at Card Makin' Mamas and the challenge this week is 1 - 2 - 3! That is we want to see one image, two designer papers and three embellishments.  Our sponsor's this week are Digi My World and they will be providing a mystery prize!  They have also given us images to work with for the challenge and I had the cute Ahoy Pirate:

He was a joy to colour in and I have used Copics to colour him.  The papers are by Nitwits called Ahoy Captain.  The waves at the bottom are the second paper but I merged them with the striped paper before I printed them.  The buttons at the top come with the papers - I have triple embossed them with some UTEE. The sentiment comes with stamp.  The ship is a button and I cut off the shank - I have had this for years and years, no idea where it came from!  The twine and skull charm are from my stash.  I cut the image and sentiment with a Nestie and distressed with some Antique Linen DI.

Please go over to Card Makin' Mamas and see what the rest of the DT have created for some more inspiration.  You may use any image to enter but your entry MUST be a card.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Card Crafter's Circle - Children
Dude Time Doodles - Anything Goes (For a Dude)
The Sisterhood of Crafters - Let's Hear if for the Boys

Well that's it for me today.  An early start we are going to Bolton Market with my daughter and her partner so we need to be off early! Nice to see the sunshine today in the UK.  Hope you have a good day wherever you are and thank you for looking, take care xx
