A Pirate's Life for Me

Happy Friday, Everyone!!
I'm so excited for the weekend. It has just been gorgeous here in Seattle and while I do love the rain (a true Seattlite) I'm also looking forward to a bright and sunny weekend. I've noticed that after so much time with overcast weather, a bit of sunshine puts the general Seattle population in a brilliant mood. Yay for happy people!

I was on pins and needles last night waiting to upload my card to show you today! I went to Michael's last week and bought a TON of patterned paper...that store is very dangerous. Among the papers I found 2 pirate pages and was instantly inspired for a Peter card. This paper is so cool--says things like "a pirate's life for me" "walk the plank" "captain jack sparrow"--but of course those cool phrases often get covered up when I lay down the elements of my card. Ah well, you get the idea! I also was super excited to use the mushrooms from Wonderland to pair with the Peter image (all images are The Greeting Farm). It kinda reminded me of the place where Peter and the Lost Boys live in Never Never Land. I had so much fun with this card!! Teehee...sorry I just can't help but say it.
I hope you have a superb and beautiful weekend!! And if you're up for a challenge, there's one going on over at Club Anya. Check it out!

Shut up!!! This is WAYYYYYYYY cool Kadie!!! Seriously, I love Peter's white hair and I must say that you colored him perfectly!! You forgot to mention the liquid applique on the 'shrooms! That was a cool touch! What SU color are you using for his skin - I like it and want to use it too! :) *sigh* my day is complete now.

You're too funny...your day is complete now. LOL. I use blush blossom for skin plus pink for the cheeks. Nothing too fancy :)
