Yo ho ho.........

Here's one I made using an adorable little pirate stamp by Nellie Snellen. The ribbon tags were done with a Nellie punch, and the letters are little alpha stickers from her. All these are available from Scrappy-go-Lucky - I certainly haven't been able to find the teensy alphas here in the UK, mores the pity. I love these clip punches that she does, and will be using them a lot. The papers are old ones from a DCWV stack



Coloured with Promarkers...
Skin: blush and soft peach
blues: pastel blue, denim blue and cornflower
browns: sandstone, caramel, tan


Not a lot of time to sit and absorb the funny side of life at the moment - it's hard to do that when you are sitting in a doctors surgery for the seventh time in a week. However, I was cheered to read a horoscope while we were waiting. Mine said
'This past week has been very stressful, next week, the moon is in alignment with Mars and your stress will lessen. Soon you will be wondering what you were stressed about........'
Phew. What a relief, I felt instantly much much better, quite perky in fact (although I only believe horoscopes when they say something nice...). Then I saw the date on the magazine. February 2010. Oh dear. Gin and tonic anyone?

You keep us all laughing in the isles so to speak!! Did you get the gin and tonic for stress? Ha!. Love the boy card. Soooooooo cute.

Linda said...

Oh my goodness this is soooo cute. Love the way you did the sentiment. Glad to read Mike is feeling better. I am the same about horoscopes. Only the good ones even if they are very old. I hope the gin worked. For me it would have to be an Old Fashion.

I love your card and the way you used the letters is awesome. Your story about the horoscope made me laugh and boy did I need that today. Hope Mike is doing better.

Cute little pirate. Love the banner. Hope your stressful days will soon be over and Mike is well on the road to recovery. Times like these are so trying and we wives have to stand strong (on the outside at least). I know sunshine is on its way.
