Yo Ho Ho (Neat and Tangled Release week)

Hi there!

Yo Ho Ho (Neat and Tangled release week)

We're kicking off this month's Neat and Tangled release week with a closer look at my new set, Yo Ho Ho.


I love cute pirate illustrations, and I added a quirky touch with these - I wanted to make it look like they were kids playing dress-up with their pets! I added a string to the toy ship to make it look like a toy too.

I made 2 cards to share with you today. For the first, I paired some of the images with a sentiment from the previously-released Topography.  They pair so well together! The little cat with the spyglass is my favorite.

My next card shows off the pirate lass instead:

The little fish jumping out of his bowl, the stuffed parrot resting on the brim of her hat, and the cat clearly having his eye on that bird - makes me smile!

I heat-embossed ARRR, and then spelled out M-A-T-E-Y using the Journaling Alphas dies.

  1. What an absolutely sweet & adorable set. Gorgeous cards.
    Love the kitty looking through the binoculars and of course, the parrot (I have a Nanday Conure named Rocky).

  2. Love the stars peeking through on your first card. My Grandson would love the pirate theme as that was his birthday party this year. You've captured laughter for me with the cat eyeing the bird. Love your white accents on both cards. Well done, me matey!
