Cutlass Cam’s on the Loose!

Yaaaar me Hearties! Carmen here but you can call me Cutlass Cam!
Look at the bounty some lucky scallywag will be getting this Christmas. Arrrrr – ye chuck yer foul smelling root vegetables, I said the C word, ye saw right ye stinking dogs! T’will be filled with swag a plenty come December, treasures of the likes to make to make a scurvy deck hand’s eyes pop! Gold (chocolate) dubloon’s and the obligatory crispy £5 note. Aye.
T’is bound with the finest maps  and encrusted with jewels ground to a fine glitter,  so it is.
The lining is of the finest braille document, why, little hands will wonder at what treasure filled secrets it hides.
Aye, treasure.  *strokes non-existent beard* Arrr.
BACK, back! Get yer filthy paws away, lest I unleash Bessy my faithful cutlass on ye all! Back I say!

  9. I am here because I love Carmen, not out of any interest for free stuff,

  10. Hmmm. Cutlass Cam is suspicious of all this love. You do know it’s Steph you all have to corrupt for random commentor of the month don’t you?

    Joanna – the hinge things are those grunge board shape thingies attacked with oodles of layers of heat embossing. The trick is to be really rubbsh at embossing so it all bubbles up and burns and thus creates that aged effect. Totally meant it to look like that. *ahem*
