Shiver Me Timbers


     Sorry this is so plain and simple guys, but to be honest my crafty mind is wrapped up in a mini album that I was asked to make.  It's almost finished and I'll be able to share it with you and concentrate more on my cards....I think.  I have had so much fun getting back to my scrapping roots and I have several paper collections in my stash that really need to get turned into the mini's they were bought to make.
     We have a new challenge starting at There She Goes and the theme is "Metal".  All this week the blog will be showcasing the "Bot" stamps sets so make sure you check out everything.  I should have used one of the Bot sets but my immediate thought was nail heads for the metal theme and the pirate set.  I created my own "wood" paper with a stamp.  Hop on over to TSG and play along.

Supplies:
Paper--Recollections, Kraft Outlet Light Kraft, Copic Xpress-it Blending card
Stamps--There She Goes Clear Stamps "Shiver Me Timbers", Stampabilities Woodgrain Background

Tools--Nestabilities Standard Circles
Miscellaneous--Spare Parts brads, Kraft Outlet Natural Twill Tape, Glossy Accents
