Happy Monday Everyone!!  I hope everyone had a great weekend!! I had a great weekend visiting with family for the entire weekend!  While the house was very full and busy, it was great spending time with them all.

Nicki, my dear daughter, also played a duet on the piano in church.  It went very well, despite she sprained her finger the day before playing basketball with her cousins on Saturday.  Her finger did swell up a bit more and turn more colors of the rainbow after the exertion on the piano but she did do it and she did well.  I am so proud of her!!! it is time for another Stamp and Create Product Spotlight.  This week the spotlight is on all pirate stamps in the store.  This means all pirate stamps are up to 25 % off!!!

I used Kraftin Kimmie Strawberry Pirate for a center step card.  The pirate is colored with copics and framed with a lacey ovals dies from Spellbinders.  The dp is from Bearly Mine's Delicious Delights digital paper.

 For more inspiration using Stamp and Create's pirate stamps , please visit my dt sisters: Joy, Lacey, Heidi, Vicky and  Jeanette.

Challenges I am entering my creation in:
KB Cute Monday - Bright colours.
Get Hippity with Ippity -Tutti fruity
.Magical Mondays mystical/fantasy image - Punches and embossing
