CCEE ~ Talk like a Pirate Day!

*Edited:  Friends, please pray for all of us in the path of Hurricane Irma.
We have our supplies, cars are gassed and evacuating the area within the hour
with my elderly mom and 4 kids and 2 dogs!
While we hope to skirt the path of the storm,
and being this far south in Miami, FL we really have no where to go
but upward and inward to stay safe. 
I pray for everyone affected by Irma ♥

It's September and that means a new round of challenges
with the CCEE Stampers.
This month, I'm the hostess so I'll have a new theme for the DT
each week, all month long!

Shiver me timbers, Tuesday was "Talk like a Pirate Day!
 So I asked the team to create a card with a pirate/pirate lingo on it :)
I used an oldie-but-goodie The Greeting Farm, Ahoy Matey (retired)
My card is featuring TGF Ian as a pirate, but
the sentiment is from Kraftin' Kimmie stamps!

Long, long ago when I had a craft room,
this stamp set came with the sentiments but
A landlubber me is!
I lost me treasure :(

I was able to borrow from me matey ....... Jeanette ....
who loaned me her Kraftin Kimmie stamps for the wee sentiment,
Thanks, matey!
I was able to take the sentiment and emboss with WOW powder in 
super fine white for some Yo! Ho! Ho! pirate lingo :)

Be sure to stop in to see the rest of the DT cards
o'er at the CCEE blog!
'Tis a treasure trove of card goodness!

Thanks for stopping by!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
