Pirate Dreams

I went to the Happy Stampers Northwest craft show in Port Sunlight yesterday I had a wonderful time and spent too much money as usual.  While I was there I met the lovely Colette and Katie the owners of Nutcrafters their stamps are so cute.  When I saw this cute Pirate Dreams stamp I knew I just had to make a card with it because it reminded me of my son a few years ago.  Here is the photographic evidence to prove it hope he doesn't look at my blog this week.
Isn't he adorable.

Hints and Tips
To make the pirate earring I just twisted a piece of wire and then pushed the end into the back of the image and taped it down (I wanted the pirate to have an earring to match the photo of my son).

This card was entered into the following challenge:
Moving Along With The Times: Challenge #98 Two B's (I have used boats and a boy).
