Avast. Me Hearties

Thursday, September 19, 2013

Well, it's finally here.  Today is Talk Like a Pirate Day so I thought it would be a good idea to put together a little tutorial to give you an idea about some of the things you could say to your co-workers, family and friends.  Be sure to work these phrases into your conversations at appropriate intervals and, if you can swing it, have a toast to Captain Jack Sparrow himself!

The colors are from the latest Color Throwdown challenge, but I started with this pirate treasure map stamped in Versamark to create a watermark image.  Then I just stamped the pirate-worthy sentiments in the challenge colors.  All of this pirate goodness comes from The Alley Way Stamps and the sets Treasure Island, Land Ho and Black Beard's Loot.

I thought of a few helpful ways you could use these phrases.  When you're at work you could say something like "Blimey, the copier is jammed again" or "Arrgggh, lunch break is over already!"  At home, when your kids put their dirty clothes in the hamper rather than on the floor next to the bed say something positive like "Yarr a treasure" and maybe they'll do it all the time!  Really, the possibilities are endless.

I'm also entering this over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge blog where they are hosting a challenge that requires items available in their store.  These stamps definitely fit that bill!

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to talk like a pirate!

Blimey, this is a fun card. Too cute, too funny. Three of my 'boys' would so love this...they loved Wheel of Fortune, and when someone would ask for an "R", we'd all say 'arrgggh'! Good memories. Bev
