On the 5th day of Christmas...

Hello Lovelies, I hope your morning is a little warmer than my morning!!!!!  Today I have for you a card I created using Bombshell Stamps.  Now you all know that I don't stitch on my cards but something about this one just called for it.  Don't go thinking I hauled out my sewing machine for this one, cause you would be wrong, this card is hand stitched!!!  I started with some gray card stock as the base of my card.  Added some decorative paper and a piece of brown card stock and that is what I stitched together.  My pirate is colored with copics and the sentiment is printed out from the computer and then stitched onto brown card stock. This is also my interpertation of the Bombshell monthly sketch for December!  I'm not quite sure this is what Kathi had in mind when she made the sketch, but it's what my brain started screaming at me to make once we saw it!!!  You can find more detail on this months Bombhsell sketch here!  Also if you haven't already head on over to the Bombhsell blog and enter our follower contest! 

Before you do that though, hop over to the side bar and see what all the other jolly bloggers have made for todays hope.  Then hop on over to Smeared and Smudged to see all the wonderful new contest for December!!!!!  Ok so here is my card....


This card will also be used for challenges issued by:
