James and his buddy Patches (notice the eye patch) are ready for an adventure.....their tools of the trade are at hand, just another day in the life of a three year old pirate with an imagination as big as the sky!!!
This card is for James who is a real hero undergoing surgery and treatment for some nasty old tumors. This was made for the Teapot Tuesday Destination Challenge. Hope by the time James receives it he is feeling better and up to some real Yo-Ho-Hoing.
I used Mo's Digital and just cut off the box that this young fella was sitting in, I replaced it with a boat I cut out and stamped over with a wood pattern. Made a Pirate hat, sail, then got a few clip art items to add.....I sure had a lot of fun.
I visited James Caring Bridge Page and it tugged at my heart. For sure this family is on my prayer list.
