A Pirate's Life ~ Pinque Peacocks Blog Hop ~ Day One

~~~~ Click HERE for the 300 Blog Follower Giveaway ~~~~

Hello to all of our Pretty Little Peacocks

Welcome to Pinque Peacock’s SEPTEMBER BLOG HOP

We hope you will enjoy your time as you hop and that you feel inspired to create after visiting the Talented Pinquettes' Blogs! This hop will showcase projects that have been created using some of the Newer Products from Pinque Peacock.

We are thrilled to have you joining us this month!  This release is showcasing some of the Products that have been in the shop for a short time already.  But now, the PINQUETTES get to DO THEIR THING, and show how wonderful and fun they are to work with on a variety of projects and creations.

 Our September Release will focus on the theme: "A PIRATES LIFE".... Arrr!!!

ARRRRR Matey!!!
I had a lot of fun pulling this card together and had to really work to come up with something  that would fit the bill. 
To work the card, I turned to the Artbooking Cricut Cartridge from Close To My Heart.  I used the Artbooking Cartridge to cut out the fun skull and crossbones for the border for the front of the card.
I then used my new Cameo machine and searched the online files for Pirate files and found this fun sentiment.  Because I wanted the sentiment to match that Pinque Peacock Toxic Love button I used near the bottom of my card.  
 I used scraps of ribbon from my stash to dress up my button and stick with the skull and crossbones theme.  If I recall, the ribbon originally came from Michael's. 
Black Paper if from Michael's
Ivory Confetti Paper is from Stampin' Up
Make sure you take the time to visit all of my Design Team Sisters blogs, I know you will be more than pleased with the "Pirate's Life".
A wide array of products were pulled together to work the PIRATE THEME this Month
INCLUDING (but not limited to)
Felt Poppers (in Fushia, Stonewash, Midnight Black and Seaside Blue)
Beads from many selections in the Bead Buffet
Beaded Stick Pins (not shown in image above)
