Ahoy Matey!

Thank Goodness It's Friday!!!  Hi everyone!  Well, it's the end to a very busy week.  I can't believe how much I got done.  I'm looking forward to sleeping in a little tomorrow.  I got to spend a little time in my craft room today.  Yippie for me!  If you recall, earlier this week, I mentioned that I had colored a couple of pirates and I've shown you one already.  Today you get to see the other one.  I love the dp's so much and there are so many patterns, so I used them again for this card.

But first........I'm going to offer up another CANDY!  I know that I just had two giveaways and I don't want you to think that I'm crazy.  When I started this blog, I never imagined the response that I would get.  I made a deal with myself that I would have a giveaway to celebrate my first 100 followers.  Well, that goal has been reached!  And, a lot sooner than ever expected.  Make sure to get down to the bottom of this post for the CANDY!

Now for the real reason we're here!

Jolly Roger Tilda

Per usual, I fell in love with this stamp as soon as I saw it.  #248 Jolly Roger Tilda is part of the Pirate, Bridal, Prom and Magic collection that is due to release in April.  You can pre-order her and others from the collection at Magnolia-licious.

The dp's are from Rusty Pickle - Pirate Princess.  CS is SU.  The flowers are from Magnolia and Prima - the Magnolia flowers are also available at Magnolia-licious and Diana has a great selection.  The ribbon was purchased by-the-yard from a local craft store.  The gems are by Prima.  Both charms are from a box that I keep on my craft table and I have no idea which company they're from.  I used diamond Stickles in the center of the flowers and gently on Tilda's stripes.

I colored Tilda using watercolor with distress inks and Copic markers.

Now for the CANDY!

One of the "can't do without" items in my craft room are the Clip-It Up organizers. If you haven't seen them, they are fantastic for organizing your embellishments. So, because I just had two giveaways with papers and embellishments, I wanted to do something different this time so I'm giving away a Clip-It Up Mini Organizer! It doesn't come with all of the embellishments, but I'm sure you can fill it up in no time at all. I have two of these mini's as well as a 2-tier in my craft room so all of my embellishments are right at hand.

How can you enter this drawing???

1. Leave a comment on this post only.
2. Put a link to this post on the sidebar of your blog (if you don't have a blog, just mention that in your comment).

The deadline for entry is midnight EST on Sunday, April 4th.  The winner will be selected using RANDOM.ORG and will be announced on my blog on Monday, April 5th.  Good luck!!!

I had a great time showing you my creation today.  I hope you can find some time to color!!!

Ciao for now,
