Arrrrrr on 2 counts. Arrrrr in pirate tone for our challenge this fortnight, and Arrrr in a slightly different pitch because I'm in a bit of pain this week.

Firstly our challenge over at Aud Sentiments

we are so excited to have Sassy Studio Designs as our sponsor. 

Here is a little bit about them...  
Sassy and Sexy!  Those two words really sum up the wonderful images that are to be found here.  SSD produce a great range of images and are always on trend and current.  I just love their storybook characters and they have some wonderful Sassy Halloween images.  All the images come in JPG, but, if you email them, they are happy to send you other formats too!  Hows that for service? 

OK, now onto the challenge. We want to see your projects or cards with a storybook theme.  So your sentiment (which you must include!) will be either from a story or something a storybook character might say!  
For this project I used Sassy studio designs 'Pirate Penny'. I think she's lovely.
So I got thinking and talking in Pirate mode, as our challenge is to use a sentiment from your Character. 
Arrrrr, I thought
These are my ideas I came up with for this project, feel free to use them in your projects:-

Arrrr, Happy Birthday
Happy Birthday Matey
Shiver me timbers, You're how old?
Yo, ho, ho & a bottle of rum.

Bottle of rum I thought! Perfect birthday gift, and opportunity to make a quirky drinks tag.

(I have a small confession, this isn't the actual bottle of rum, I'm yet to go out and purchase that one, this one is for illustration purposes only.....and sampling! lol ;)

My 2nd Arrrrr is due to me being in a little pain this week. I'm currently doing up my new home, but this week I've done something to my neck/shoulder whilst stripping the ceiling. I'm currently drugged up on paracetamols and smelling beautifully of deep heat, renovations are on hold on my part as I'm struggling to move my arm :( I'm hoping its going to heal quick. The quicker I finish my home, the quicker I can get back to crafting and blogland properly! 

I'd like to enter the following challenges

Paper Pretties Wednesday Challenge - Masculine (it's for a Male friend)
Ladybugs Crafts Challenge - I need a P - Pirate


  1. Well, I certainly hope you heal quickly!!
    Love the bottle tag idea! And the image and sentiment are perfect for a bottle of rum! Love your die cuts and paper, too! Thank you for sharing this idea with us at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge. Hope to see you again next week! :^)
    Hugs, Penny

  2. What a darling idea for wine! Perfect, and your coloring is fantastic! Love that background, too. The Happy Birthday sentiment is cute hehe - I am sorry to hear you are in too much pain, and I hope it goes away by the time you awaken in the morning. Love your coloring techniques!

  3. Wonderful tag, and such a fun idea for a gift!! The colouring is beautiful and love the sentiment!
