Ahoy mateys!!

Well this is my last week as Guest Designer for Stampin' for the Weekend. I have loved being involved in the last 2 thanks Kimmi for asking was a pleasure. This week we have 2 sponsors..woo hoo..firstly Michelle Perkett is offering 12 cards and 1 stamp from her store - - pop over to her website and see what images she has on offer - beautiful!! Secondly Tracy from Spesch Designer Stamps is also offering a couple of digital images from her store - are adorable...a must have!! On to the theme this week - "Getting to know You" - which is to be based on your favourite book...I have based my easel card on Treasure Island....The backing papers and stickers I have had in my stash for ages but I have never use them cos they are so nice and I didn't want to cut them up..well now I have...the treasure map stamp is from whipper Snapper, the pirate, anchor and message were downloaded from Pollyraft..coloured with copics, the transparent stickers on the front were mounted onto card and cut out and stuck on with sticky fixers to give a 3D effect and then I added some Suze Weinberg's beadazzles to make it look like some spilt treasure.

I have also entered this card in the following challenges:

Crafty Creations - distressing

Fab 'n' funky - Get it all out

Sweet Stampin - in stitches

Allsorts - in stitches
