A new card

Hi and hello! I am finally here again. After being knocked out by a new cold I have finally managed to get myself out of bed and if not running, at least functioning again even if I am really tired. I thought that I should take the chance of showing a card that I made last year but hasn't been blogged yet for some reason. There was a period in November/December when we had tons of birthday both in the closest family and within the kids circle of friends. And it all the Christmas cards the cards I made in between got kind of lost. But I still do have Christmas cards that hasn't been shown yet. Be warned, they might show up in the middle of the summer. LoL

Anyway, over at one of our big museums here in Kalmar, well to be honest, our only big museum they have exhibition about pirates from past to present. And as my kids are in the ages soon to be 5 and just turned 6 they love everything about this theme. And the clever museum let you rent the place for parties. So many parties over at the museum and then you need to have a proper pirate card to give away, right? Yepp, that's what my boys thinks too and this is the first of the cards of that theme.

I don't remember from where the designer papers are, but it is a Halloween pack, perfect for pirate cards in a different colour scheme. The second one made has been done in more classic red, blue and whites. As it is a boys card it's not too many embellishments on it but there is a lovely fitting charm, some scrapper's floss that I bought tons of in strange colours, I just know it would come in handy one day. LoL. Also a few black pearls are added. 

The image is from Lili of the Valley and is so cute. The LOTV images are wonderful with their boys images. I just love them. :) The pirate and his little four legged friend is coloured with my normal Letraset family.
