A simple pirate birthday card...

I have some very old pirate-themed dies, and thought I would use them to make a birthday card for my daughter's stash. They are just one layer dies, but by cutting them out from different colors of cardstock, cutting them apart and layering them, they look a little more 3-D. The letters for the word "Ahoy" were some puffy stickers from my stash.

Here's a little closer look. The dotted lines at the bottom were made with a dotted line die, but I'm not sure of the brand. I'm also too tired to go and look.

On the inside I added the pirate boat die-cut and a computer-generated sentiment. I'm hoping this card works for some little boy's birthday.

It's COLD here in Minneapolis. I envy those animals who get to hibernate through a Minnesota winter. Kind of wish I could join them when that wind chill dips below -20F.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Great boy's card, I'm sure your daughter loves to get her stash to see what you've been creating! -20 sounds BRRRRRR, we think we're bad if we get to -5C!!
