Arrrrr, Happy Birthday Honey!

Lots of photos for this very special card
I made today for my dear, sweet, bestest friend, most wonderful
Man in the World
My Husband of 26 years
Pirate Bob!

I had so much fun making this birthday card for my husband, I had to take lots of photos! I used Dustin Pike images, followed the sketch over at Seems A little Sketchy, a stash of Paperloft DPs, and had to make him an easel - he thinks they are so clever... We will be retiring all jobs April 1st and hitting the RV trail to see America... this card is a little pun to him, as he is now drawing his SS(loot)- he'll get quite a chuckle in the morning when he finds this on his desk! Happy Birthday, Honey!

RECIPE: Dustin Pike-images; Seems a Little Sketchy-sketch #3; paperloft-DPs; Marvy-star punch; ribbon/coin-LSS; 7Gypsies-key charm; copics
