Avast!


In celebration of International Talk Like a Pirate Day, which just happens to be my birthday (aaaar, I be pirate through and through!), I hereby announce a birthday competition for all you beauties!

Leave a comment of any kind on this post, and in a week I will put all yer names in a pirate hat, and choose three of you to walk the plank win a mixed set of Knittin' Art cards! Now come on my lovelies and lurkers, don't be shy! Aaaaar!

  4. Hang on - it's your birthday. You don't have to give gifts - you get gifts! Besides - don't pirates plunder and pillage!!! Hang on a minute - I get it now. I bet Lulu put you up to this so that when you deliver the prize to the winner, she can join you and indulge in some plunder and pillage of her own (after more jewels I'd say). I'm on to her!!!! Have a great birthday though - love from your friend K xo

  24. Oh, I'm so sorry I missed your bday! I hope it was happy! No need to enter me in the contest, I bought my own couple sets of cards (AWESOME, BTW). I just wanted to say Happy Day, now that I have managed to wrest the computer away from the bad peoples who are living with me.

  27. Sorry, last comment was left by me but had waaay too many typos in it for me to deal with.

    Happy birthday for earlier this month. I should have known you were a Virgo - you're so nice! Just like my Dad : )

    In case I forgot to say in my letter to you, I loved the card you sent with Tilly's prezzie. You're such a talented artist. Incidentally, Tilly's started to be able to focus on the autumn leaf side of the toy you made for her. She's not reaching out to grab stuff yet but I'm sure that's will be in the not too distant future as she's eyeing off colourful stuff with a look of intent!

    I missed ISLAP day this year AGAIN. Pathetic. Will do better next year.
