Ahoy Matey...

Hi everyone...oh my, it's the weekend already. YAY!! I'm sooooo excited! I have so much crafting to get done this weekend. I have many, many cards to create...for birthdays, engagements, weddings, baby showers...and I'm so excited because I just received a huge box of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. Well, I paid for them, of course...but wouldn't it have been nice if they'd have sent them to me gratis just because I'm such a sweet person?! LOL. OK...enough fooling around...I have to get cracking! Here's the little Captain Edwin that I've been struggling with for the past several days. Seriously, I think this little guy was the FIFTH or SIXTH attempt! I don't know if it was the paper I was using or if I temporarily lost my touch with Copics...but this one is truly a labor of love! Yep...and how perfect since this is a birthday card for my sweet hubby! He's a big Jimmy Buffet fan...and he's a pirate "wannabe"! I think he's gonna love it...although I'm going to have to keep it a big fat secret until mid-September!

I confess, I used more Copic markers for this card than any other card I've ever made...far too numerous to list...I lost track counting at 25! The cardstock is from SU (Baja Breeze and Creamy Caramel), and the DPs are from DCWV - The Travel Stack). I used my Tim Holtz distresser, Glossy Accents, and Ultrafine Flower Soft - sand color - for the (you guessed it) sand!. I had such fun making this card...well, once I was able to get Edwin colored, that is. I hope you have fun browsing through my bloggity blog! Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a beautiful rest of the day. Catcha soon...Pat
