Okay, so if you have landed here from the blog of the Awesome Sandie, then you are still on the right track.  I'm just going to tell you a little about my card and then I'll send you on to the next stop.  For my card, I used Smee, the dastardly yet cute cohort of the infamous Captain Hook.   I found Smee to be a bit of a challenge to begin with as I always struggle with masculine cards, but once I got started I had a lot of fun.  After colouring Smee with my Copics, I decided to bite the bullet and fussy cut him out.  I love to see it done, but I tend to be too lazy to do it myself.  I wanted him to be a little bit too big for the Nestie I was using behind, I love it when the image extends over the border.  For the white background layer, I used one of my Labels 14 Nesties and then adhered it to a Labels 7 Nestie, using a piece of Rose Red patterned paper from some S.U. Thoroughly Modern DP.  The other patterned papers are also from the same pack.  I used some matching baker's twine and coloured a silver charm with a Copic Marker to tie onto the twine.  I added 3 matching buttons and coloured a treasure chest from Kraftin' Kimmie's Pirate Set, then I used 'Yer A Treasure', which comes with Smee along with 'It Smee and You'.

Don't forget, if you didn't start back at the beginning, go to Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge Blog, but if you've done that, your next step is to head to the blog of our wonderful Miss Kerry.

Be sure to leave some love at every stop for more chances of winning some of the newly released stamps!!  What have you got to lose?  Don't forget to drop by Kraftin' Kimmie's Stamp Shop when you are done and check everything out.

Happy Hopping,
Diana
