Aaargh!!! Happy Owl-oween!

Aaargh me hearties!!!!!!! did you know that yesterday (19th Sept) was 'Talk Like a Pirate Day' ... for some of you I guess it is today .... just depends which side of the globe you life one LOL! I didn't make a pirate card yesterday cause I didn't get around to stamping but I had to make one today especially seeing I got some new pirate stamps during the week.

You all know I love owl's so when I see new owl stamps I normally have to have them ... but I also seem to collect pirate stamps too so of course when I saw this fun Owl-Oween set from Hero Arts of course I had to have it!

My card today is for Beate's weekend sketch challenge and this stamp set seems to fit right into this layout so it worked out great! I used the web cuttlebug embossing folder to create the texture on the left hand side of the card.

Recipe:
Stamps: Owl-oween set - Hero Arts; Aaargh - Stampendous
Paper: White; Black; Real Red - SU; DP - Unknown
Other: Black Ink; Old Paper Distress Ink; Black Brads; Distressing Tool; Paper Piercing Mat & Tool; Web Cuttlebug Embossing Folder; Copics

Cheers to thee for knowin' such a special day!

My thirteen yr old DS has been speakin' pirate all day. His mates at school have done likewise. He was thrilled to learn that I still had an eye patch in my treasure trove & he proudly wore it to school!

Now i've shown him your fabulous card and he insists I find the "ahh COOL" owl stamp! TFS!! Lara's Laugh Lines
