Shiver Me Timbers! It's A Bombshell Hop!

Welcome to another Bombshell Stamps' Hump Day Hop! You should have arrived here from the multi-talented Kelli's blog. If you didn't, head on back to the Bombshell Blog to start at the beginning!!!

Alison has a fabulous theme for us this month! Here's what she wrote:

In honor of the latest Pirates of the Carribean flick, and the start of summer (cruises and with me here, folks) I decided what better theme than pirates! More like the phrase "Shiver me timbers!" Now, I am thinking pirates...but what do YOU think of when you hear that phrase?

Well, I love pirates so that is the way I went with this challenge!!! Bombshell's A Pirate's Life was one of the first sets that I ever bought...and of course, I just LOVE Capt. Jack Sparrow...I'd like to shiver HIS timbers!!! :D Oh, sorry, I got a little carried away in my, here is my card for this month's hop but I must say it looks much better in real life:

This compass image is from Bombshell's Homeward Bound set:
