AARRGGGHH!!

No it’s not Talk like a Pirate Day – that’s in September!

Ok you saw MD’s lovely purple and zebra invitation so now it’s time for J’s Pirate invitation!  First let me say J ADORES Jack Sparrow!  I think if Johnny Depp showed up at my house J would beat me to him!!  The girl has a Jack Sparrow towel! Not to mention how many times we’ve watched Pirates of the Caribbean She has a picture of Jack Sparrow as a Lego guy next to her bed and she kisses him goodnight – every night – she has issues! LOL!

So I HAD to make her a Pirate invitation.  So first I started out with the good ole Jolly Roger – cut at 5″ from the Mini Monsters Cricut cartridge.  I knew I wanted to put it on black card stock, but then thought it looked kinda boring, so I put a piece of dark cranberry behind it – NICE! 

Then I realized the Jolly Roger wasn’t PIRATE enough so I hand drew a sword and cut  “-” and “{” using Plantin School house and made a handle.  The sentiment ‘ It’s a PAAARRRTY!’ J wrote herself on the blade!   Then J and I thought the jeweled eye was a really nice touch!  I think it came out great!

Well I hope it gave you some ideas to get friends to come to your Shipwreck!  Just make sure you hide the Rum! ARRGH!

Have a Magical Day!

    Cute – in a scary, pirate way of course! Love that you made the sword handle from font die-cuts & the jewelled eye definitely is a great touch! As for Mr Depp, Argggghh♥!♥!♥!
