W2SB #21 - Ahoy, Matey!!

Ahoy W2SB friends!  Annie here to host W2SB's September Challenge - Ahoy Matey!  Did you know that September 19 is International Talk Like a Pirate Day?  In honor of this fabulous day of fun, you can make a card/project inspired by one of the following pirate expressions:
  • Ahoy, Matey!
  • Arrrr!
  • Blimey!
  • Yo Ho Ho!
Or, use anything piratey (I think I just made up a word). Things like parrots, ships, treasure, a bottle of rum, Johnny Depp...LOL!  I had to throw him in there!

Let's see what our fab I-Team has come up with to inspire you:

Our first Guest I-Teamer this month is Andrea.  She was our July winner in the Chocolate challenge, wowing us with her yummy box of chocolates.  Check out her awesome pirate ship on those wonderful ocean waves!  Thanks for joining us this month, Andrea!

Our second Guest I-Teamer is a good friend of W2SB.  Peggy designed our badge and banner AND her birthday is on Talk Like a Pirate Day!  Check out all the fun fabric details of this gorgeous pirate on her blog and stop by to leave her some birthday love!  Happy Birthday, Peggy!

Bobbi also went with a ship theme for inspiration that she framed with a perfect porthole and richly embossed wood background. 

Sybrina created this super cute anniversary card for her hubby following the pirate theme.  You need to stop by and see what she said inside the card!  She's one creative crafter!

Penny's card is a treasure with it's beautiful sentiment as the focal point.  Love the distressed edges and map-like look!

Look at the gorgeous stormy scene that Greta created for this challenge.  The blue color palette is stunning against that embossed background.   

And, lastly,  I went with Doodle Pantry's pirate birdie and pirate ship for a fun kid's card.  Pirates CAN be cute :-)
I'm sure you have heard the saying:  "Work like a Captain, Play like a Pirate."  Now go play and just maybe you will find some buried treasure.  Kim from Paper Smooches added the super cute stamp set, Ahoy Me Hearty, to W2SB's Treasure Chest this month!  Who wouldn't love to win that?  Arrrr!
