Morgan and mine joint Pirate creation

Hi all, just a quick post, because my little girl is back from camp, busy having a shower (proper one lol). This is a joint effort card by Morgan and I for his friend James. Morgan drew the map which we had burnt with a match around the edges to try and make it look old. He also generated the compass using the computer (far more gifted than his mum in that area). The cute pirate is from Pollycraft which I coloured with my wonderful copics, available from Mad for Markers.

Inside the card I made a treasure chest which contained James treasure ($$$).

My two have finished school today, till the 13th July so we are hoping to do some family crafting and visit Kaisercraft. I do have a birthday coming up soonish around the time of my one year having a blog, where does the time go, so am putting together some goodies for a little celebration blog candy later in the month and the children are helping put this together, I am so excited, never done a blog candy before.
