Mo's Captain Hugh

I love this image from Mo - in fact all her kiddy dressing up ones - although this one was for a  rather big kid!!  This is  Captain Hugh and you can find him here in Mo's store.  There is also a whole host of piratey accessories here although I was making a quick card so didn't have time to use them. 

As it needed to be quick,  I kept the card very simple, using Marianne Nautical Papers (PK9133).  I also punched out the little anchor candi dots from the paper too.

His cutlass, and skull and crossbones, are really ancient Quickcutz dies, I think, but great for this card, and I stamped the sentiment myself using a recent freebie from Making Cards magazine - an Alphabet stamp set! 

Well it's just about the weekend so hope yours is a good one.

Hugs, Juliexx

It's new challenge day today at Passion for Promarkers where our theme of Celebrations has been chosen by our lovely Nic.  And as our sponsor this week is The Paper Shelter, we've been lucky enough to work with some of their lovely images. 

For my card, I've used Wedding Cake  which is such a cutie and of course, I've gone nuts with lots of Marianne goodies.  I don't quite know how but all my wedding cards seem to end up being creams or yellows which aren't my usual colours of choice so need to knock that on the head!!

Here's a full list of all the Marianne goodies I've used including their fabulous new Ribbon edge Rectangle which comes with the gorgeous mini charms dies!

Rectangle Ribbon Die - CR1437 NEW
Ribbon Edge Die - CR1370
Wedding Sentiments Stamps - CS0999 NEW  - Love these for that special occasion.
Sweet Romance Papers - PK9153 NEW
Ornate Corner Rectangle Die - LR0405
Tag Die - CR1377

As mentioned we're being sponsored by The Paper Shelter and they're offering the winner 3 digi images of their choice!


And Celebrations mean any kind of celebration - birthdays, babies, graduations, new jobs - so come and join in with us here.  Just remember to use your Promarkers!
