And, finally, we will get to my project for the pirate-themed hop!
This is my first hop with the Pinquettes, and I'm super excited to share my projects with you.
But, I have to tell you.  My mojo left me.  When I was trying to think of a pretty, elegant, wonderful way to showcase Pinque Peacock products, yet use a pirate theme, I drew a total blank.  I thought. And thought.  I thought for days.  This is as much as I could come up with:
Oh, wow, hey.  That's impressive.  A pirate map with a gorgeous Pinque Peacock beaded stick pin. 'X' marks the spot. Hmm. Well.  OK.  I knew I needed to re-think things and come up with something a little more impressive than THAT.  I mean, really.  First hop, and that's the best I could do?
So, I started thinking pirates, and booty, and pretty baubles.  Then, I remembered there were women pirates.  And then, I HAD it!

I created this card using my Cricut Imagine machine and the Buccaneer cartridge.  There's a beautiful blue felt popper to highlight this card, and the newest addition to the Pinque Peacock line, the fabric die cut skull shape.  The female pirate is paper pieced.  Some parts are elevated with 3D foam tape to give her some dimension.  The sentiment is from one of my favorite stamp companies, Unity.  The stamp set is called "Sassy Pants", designed by Erin Schreiner for Unity.  I thought it worked perfectly for this steamy little pirate!
I'm going to send you on to Paula's blog for some more inspiration, but before I do, I want to leave you with one thought:
