The journey of creating begins with a spark from deep within. The artist continues on the loom of life and throughout time a beautiful tapestry takes shape and form from the luscious fibres, brilliant gems and precious pearls we encounter along the way....

It's a Pirate's Life for Me!

What a fun Happy Birthday Invitation for a slumbering late February birthday party. A birthday party where all the children dress up in their best pirate costume! What a fabulous idea and how best to wake up the earth in preparation for Spring?

This card was so much fun to make. I used the cricut extensibly and I experimented with some software to weld my letters together for the title. These invites are "oldworld".. very ornate and rich. They are 6"x9" in size and several pattern papers were used as well as metal and other embellishments. I made 24 invitations and each one was slightly different; I even made different ones for boys and some very girly one too. I will post one of the girl's pirate invitations tomorrow... Stay tuned!

If you like this card... become a member of my blog - you won't be sorry as I plan to have future draws and raffles and the odd blog candy surprise or two as I gear up going forward.
