Stamper's Dream and Friends Blog Hop!

MyCute-Arghhhhh-wm

Hi everyone

Argghh …….You ready for some fun????

Welcome to my blog, I am super excited to have been asked to join in the Stampers Dream & Friends Blog Hop.

For my card today I used this cute stamp set from My Cute Stamps called Pirate Princess …. isn’t she the cutest! I stamped the skull & crossbones 3 times and cut them out and attached them to the top of my black brads. The eye patch that I have on the girl is optional …. so you can have her just as a plain girl or as a pirate whatever you would like.

The layout of my card uses this month’s SFYTT sketch challenge.

Here is the blog hop list.  Have you ever seen a more talented list of designers?  Be sure to leave a comment for each and every one of them when you visit their blog post today. TWO have hidden blog candy, and you are required to comment on their blog post for a chance to win!
