Happy Friday, y'all!! It feels like forever since I have posted, but it has been an insane week!! My youngest has had the swine flu all week. He has asthma, so it is more serious for him. He has been fever free for 2 days now, but still has a bad cough and had to go on prednisone so he does not get viral pneumonia!! Eek! He has already had pneumonia twice before, so he is kind of prone. To top it off, I had a wisdom tooth extracted this week too. We were certainly a pair laying around on the couches all week! I finally feel much better, so I made it up to my office to get crafty! I missed my office!

Today I have a Pirate Edwin card to share with you. It can be used a birthday, hello, or whatever it needs to be!
I used Pirate Edwin, Barrel, Skull and Anchor and Ocean Background stamps from Magnolia. I used some PTI cardstock and distressed it around the edges with a distresser tool. The image was torn around the edges and then Tea Dye Distress ink was applied around the edges. Charms like the one I used can be found here. Floss can be found here.
Here is a close-up of Edwin. I used these Copics:
E11, 00, 000, R30, C7, 9, 5, 3, 1, E37, 35, 33, 31, 30, E43, 42, 41, 40, R39, 37, 35, 32, B97, 95, 93, 91, E55, 53, 50, B000,00, BG72, BG10

Stamps - Pirate Edwin, Barrel, Skull and Anchor, Ocean Background, sentiment (SU)
Paper - cardstock
Ink - Memento, Copics, Tea Dye Distress Ink
Accessories - Charm, Nestabilities, Distresser Tool, Scoreboard, Inkssentials Blending Tool, Floss

Ahhh - I can feel the ocean breezes now - so warm so comforting. Alas it is a cold rainy day here but your card helps me remember what summer is all about. Very cute card. If anyone knows what the ocean is about and what pirates are - you should! Is there such a thing as pirate fish?
