Talk Like a Pirate Day

Happy September!  Time for a new challenge at Words 2 Scrap By.  Talk Like a Pirate Day is Sept. 19, so we want you to make a project inspired by one of these pirate expressions: 
Ahoy, Matey!
Arrrr!
Blimey!
Yo Ho Ho!
When I think pirates, I think sailing ships.  I bought this Magenta stamp years ago since hubby loves boats.  I stamped it with Versamark & then rubbed on 3 different blue Pan Pastels I bought months ago & hadn't yet tried.  They give a lovely sheen in person.  
The card front was dry embossed with a folder that gives an impression of waves, if you have a good imagination, and a blue Copic made the little metal squares match.  Hope you'll check out the work of my talented teammates & join in the fun this month. There's an adorable Paper Smooches stamp set going to the winner! Thanks so much for stopping by.

Awesome card! That's an oldie by goodie stamp. I used to have it back in the day.
Q: What did the pirate say when his wooden leg got stuck in the freezer?
A: Shiver me timbers!
Arrrr!
