Why Are Pirates Called “Pirates”

Hey Y'all!!!  Why are pirates called “pirates”?  “They just ARRRRR”.  How funny.  When I saw this stamp set I thought of football games at East Carolina University with our daughter.  Everyone screaming ARRRRR with their fingers hooked up in the air.  Those were the days.  Greeting cards are all about the memories and what they involve in the peeps you send them to.  Don't you feel the memories when you receive one?  All the details for this card are below (including links).


I started with the “Watercolor Lines Coverplate” die from Honey Bee Stamps for the background.  Love the peekaboo affect it has on the colors underneath.  Cut it out of Whimsy Stamps “Rainbow” paper.  Love the bright colors.  I'm a bright color sort of girl.


I cut a 4″ circle using the “Circle Around” die from Fun Stampers journey.  It's cut out of Whimsy Stamps “Rainbow” paper.  To give my little pirate a border I used a nestabilities scallop circle in Cranberry Bliss from FSJ.


Stamped the sentiment on Summer Days card stock from FSJ to match the card base.


Finished it off with some red rope.  Everybody needs some extra rope when they are sailing.  Even pirates!
