Oo'ar! Jim lad!

Oo'ar shipmates!

Pieces of eight, shiver me timbers, ship on the starboard bow and other piratical phrases! Now you may have assumed this was me, Caique Momma posting... wrong tis I Snafu Straw, pirate of the high seas of Yorkshire.... OK some of you may think hang on there are no seas high or other in my part of Yorkshire... for this post there are you landlubbers! ;))

The challenge over at Simon says Stamp is Pirates - oo'arrrr! Avast ye with a bottle of rum strapped on me dead man's chest and all that! Hmm I'm not struck on rum actually unless its in a Pina Colada... could you strap that on a dead man's chest I wonder? Either that or a nice gin and tonic....


Anyhoodles I inked up little pirate Edwin and stood him in front of the barrel. Coloured him with Copics (natch ;)) I even found some paper with anchors on! I've had this forever! On the bit that's left it says Daisy D's, twill and raffia etc from my meagre stash....

So have at ye me hearties, yo ho ho and a Pina Colada....

Oh you might want to catch the passport saga below this.... you wouldn't believe it....
