Pirate Party Thank You Notes & Pics

It's been an extremely busy March for our family!  The pirate party was a huge success - lots of fun was had by all, especially the birthday boy.  Here's a photo of the thank you cards I made up for him to send out to all of his generous friends and family.  It was really fun stamping and creating pirate themed items.  I still have to do his scrapbook pages for the party pics.  I'll post those when they're finished as well!  For this card, I used the Ahoy Matey stamp set (retired), along with Sunflower, Cranberry, Black, Colonial White and Desert Sand carstocks and inks.   I also used the Thank you stamp set and some Black bigger brads.  Simple and cute, does the job I think!

Here's a photo of the pirate cake I made:

Veranda Card


This is a 5x7 card.  I used paper from the Veranda packet, along with the following stamp sets:  Simple Stitches, Felicity and Say It In Style.  On the bird stamped image, I used the "rock and roll" technique with Creme Brulee and Juniper inks.  Another card that came together super quickly with a pattern from the Wishes book!

Pirate Party Invitations


I made these invitations for my son's birthday party.  I used the retired stamp set Ahoy Matey with Desert Sand, Cranberry, Colonial White, Black and Sunflower cardstocks.  I used the blending pen to color in the stamped sword - I love my blending pen!  I also used some Colonial White waxy flax, black brads and a black photo hanger.  Arrrrgh!
