Ahoy, ahoy...

Avast ye land-lubbers or should I say stamp-lubbers? ;)

It's time for the February Tickled Pink previews to begin and we are kicking of preview week with this cool li'l seadog, Pirate Frankie! Isn't he just the most fabulous swashbuckler this side of the seven seas? LOL

I found this great map looking paper in my DCWV Once Upon a Time stack and right away I knew that it was Frankie's treasure map and I just had to use it in the background. But I didn't want to cover up too much of it so I kept the embellishing to a minimum. Which I think works just fine for a more guy looking card anyway. The charms have been in my stash for eons and I was thrilled to finally see them fulfill their crafty destiny, LOL!
Frankie sure makes for a fun way to say hello but I can just see him being even more fun for pirate themed party invites and the like... arrrrrrgh... ;)

Now be sure to head on over to the Tickled Pink blog to check out what the rest of the Pink Ladies have created and to get yourself entered in for a chance at winning some Frankie booty... minds out of the gutter ladies... I'm talkin' about a free stamp, LOL!

Alrighty, it's time for this working girl to walk the plank... see ya later!
