Pirate Monkey

I'm embarrassed to admit how long I've had these pirate supplies on hand. I was so excited when pirates became popular. I got a whole bunch of stamps and supplies and did not make even one card. I am just so glad for this week's challenge at For Fun Challenges to kick start me.

This week to celebrate summer we are to use sand in our cards. I ran out to my garage and stole a bit of my finest grit sandpaper that I use when preparing our bookshelves and window seats for painting. The image of this cute little monkey pirate is from our sponsor, The Paper Shelter. The gold coins are pieces of confetti that I couldn't help myself from grabbing at Michaels ages ago.

The colours seem a bit funny in the photograph. I'm not sure if the shadow effect is being caused by the colour contrast in my two different DP or whether it is the soft evening light.

I do hope you'll join us and have as much fun as I did with this card! This week's winner will recieve a $15 gift certificate to The Paper Shelter.
