My 2-year-old gs was playing with 2 little pirate figurines on Tuesday and chatting away to them.  I didn’t take too much notice until he started to “put on” a growly pirate voice and I think he was saying “Ahoy Me Matey”.  As he is just starting to try to put little sentences together I was stunned and couldn’t help but laugh.  How cute.  In recognition of such cuteness I made today’s card.

I’m entering the card in the “Catch The Bug January Photo Challenge”.  This is the photo inspiration.

You might not see the link between the two 😆  well the colours are the feature which caught my eye – blue, brown, white and a touch of rust.

This pirate is a bit of a “swinger” in the nicest possible way.    Children always seem to like interactive cards so I’ve added a “star” brad to his hat and now he can swing from side to side.

Hope you enjoyed today’s card.

Bye for now,
