Ahoy!

I was inspired by the chipboard challenge this week on SCS and also by Linda, Julie, and Mary's pirate/ship cards (thanks!). So I created this for one of my son's friends for his third birthday. I don't have any chipboard, so I made my own by using two punched circles as templates to draw the three on a piece of cardboard. Then cut it out and covered it with an A Muse stripe tag. I hand-lettered the "you're" after the A Muse "ahoy matey" sentiment. I also experimented with the thick end of a Copic marker to color the water. The map is the grad scroll on Confetti Cream cardstock aged with reinkers and chalk ink. One of these days, I'm actually going to use that scroll for a grad card - LOL!

This if just FABULOUS! This is just FUN-tastic from your use of the A muse grad scroll, chipboard numeric 3 and writing in of 'you're'... just great!
