It's a Pirate Party!

Another discontinued set ....
I'll be putting up a few cards made with discontinued sets this month. This was Jacob's 6th birthday party invitation (going back a little way in time here!). I used a set called "Lively Little Ones" and cut out a little pirate hat for him, and drew a white gel pen skull and crossbones on it, and used the Horizontal slot punch to make his little eyepatch. The background is stamped with Fresh fillers (I use that set so often!) and I did the message on the computer. The colours are Ruby Red, More Mustard and Old Olive. This card doesn't open; it's a postcard with a magnet on the back, so the recipients could stick it on their fridge.
It was such a fun party; the boys were all great. We all got dressed up as pirates (that's my hubby Dave as blackbeard!), I made a treasure chest cake, Dave made them balloon swords and scabbards, and balloon parrots to sit on their shoulders, and we played lots of pirate-y games...mind you, they were pretty happy to just run around like mad idiots and have balloon sword fights with eachother!!

Oh, and don't forget my competition...scroll down to see the details!


  1. Super this mix of colors (esp. for a pirate theme...who woulda thunk?).

  2. I'm sad about this set too, it's so great for kids birthdays.

    LOVE the card too, I would never have thought to make him into a pirate!
