We're Off to Peggy's Cove, Nova Scotia !

Mothermark (Cindy) has a Teapot Challenge every Tuesday on her blog which is now featured in the Split Coast Challenge forums as well.

This week we are off to Peggy's Cove, Nova Scotia - and I've got Pete the Pirate (an old friend of Peggy's) on the deck of his pirate ship plotting the course to Peggy's Cove on the horizon there...... we're off to catch fish and Pete here has one already on deck with an eye to the ocean for more - I was going to add a light house image to my card but the stamp I know I have has gone missing in my stamping room so we missed the boat on that so to speak!!!
I was the hostess this week for the Doubledog Dare Challenge I do with some Split Coast friends. My challenge was to make a card using this swarthy Pirate Dragon and Pirate Ship Background -they are free Dustin Pike digi images that you can find here. We'd love to have you join in on the Tuesday Doubledog Dare challenges as well. You can find those here .
My card also covers the Color challenge on Split Coast this week - to use Vanilla, Close to Cocoa and Taken with Teal (and a few other colors added in for good measure!) can I pack any more into this card!?!?!? LOL!!!
Here is the pile of Copics that I used to color the images!
Thank you for coming by today!!
Stamps: Karen Foster Snap Stamps - Dustin Pike Digi Images
Paper: Close to Cocoa, Taken with Teal: SU, Vintage Cream: PTI
Ink: So Saffron
Accessories: Sponge, foam dimensionals, circle punch, glue dots, fish charm: Custer's Last Stand, Black micron pen, copics
