Cap'n Jack He Aint!


But the papers are! Oooh Aargh!

He is in fact a Sugar Nellie ... the only one I possess ... have had it yonks ... only got it out of the bag this morning ... and discovered that he came with an adoption certificate ... I may send him back ... he does n't say much!

This is my first ever entry for the allsorts challenge Nellie1 which I found today via Shaz's fabulous blog ... and thought I would give the theme of 'Something for the boys' a go!

The papers, the ribbon, the chipboard shape are all Rusty Pickle. The Jolly Roger is a clearly defined stamp from Printworks ... and I have stamped a Penny Black greeting over the top of it. The map is an oldie from Hero Arts!

Ahoy me hearties ... a big Thank you to everyone who joined the big Tilda debate ... I had a good chuckle over many of the answers and I really appreciated your honesty.

Shiver me timbers is that the time? ... I have treasure to find!
