Ahoy matey...

Good morning! 

The September release previews continue over at CC Designs today. This month the new stamps fall into three different categories; autumn, pirates and circus. For the pirate theme showcase I chose the sassy Li'l Lolita Captain Dawn and Land Ho' Background. It's been a while since I've colored up a Li'l Lolita so this was a real treat getting Dawn on to a card. I usually rely on pattern paper to create scenes for the characters on my cards but I was in a coloring sort of mood so the Land Ho' Background totally came into play. I think I was channeling Pirates of the Caribbean which actually makes me want to have a Pirates marathon sometime soon, LOL!   

Ok, don't forget to check out the CC Designs blog to see all of the new September release pirate themed stamps in action and get your name entered into the drawing to win them before you can buy them!

Amy, this is fantastic. Love the whole scene you created. We had a pirates marathon in my house recently. And over the weekend we had a Twighlight marathon. Have a good week.
