Well here we are for another whimsical Wednesday!!  I hope you’re all have a wonderful week.  I know the chickie in my stamp is, I wish I was a whimsical as her, sitting somewhere on a beach/shoreline instead of getting ready for a colonoscopy.  As anyone that has one knows they are anything but whimsical.

PLUS, we have another guest sketcher this week – MISS KYAH!! and she put together a great one that is just perfect for the SweetPeas Stamps.

I think these stamps are amazing (ok, it’s no secret that I have an affection for stamps and have a propensity to gush over my new ones) and I have to admit these are just wonderful for coloring.  However it’s not mandatory, as you will see in my card this week.  I was using Unregrettable Pirate Life and was inspired to do a pirate flag type card.

AhoyMateyStamps: Unregrettable Pirate Life
Ink: Versamark
Paper: SU Black, Webster’s Pages – Lullaby Lane & Life’s Portrait , Neenah CS, Misc Map Paper
Extra: PTI Black Polka Dot Ribbon, Gold Coins (had to have some booty), Nestabilities, White eP

I hope you got a chance to play with last week’s sketch because there was a $20 Gift Certificate up for grabs.  If not don’t worry we’d love for you to play along with us anyway.  Just go over to the Whimsical Dare blog to check out the details and of course see what the other girls have made.
