My card features the Ahoy Me Hearty stamp set. This pirate-themed set is so much fun and it's one of my most favourite masculine sets since Super. I created my own pirate by using selective inking and masking on the mad scientist from Great Chemistry.



I used the Love Word and Flowers dies to create the eye patch. The combination of the scowling upside-down mouth, eye patch and googly eye makes me laugh!


I thought you would enjoy seeing the mad scientist's doppelgänger staring back at him. LOL!


The custom sentiment was created by mixing and matching parts of phrases from Ahoy Me Hearty and the exclamation mark is from Mini Monograms. The background was created using the Curly Clouds and Borders 1 dies.


Thanks so much for hopping with us today! Remember to check the Paper Smooches Blog on Monday to see if you are one of the lucky winners!!
