A Reading Pirate

This week I'm hosting the challenge at Lollipop Crafts and the theme is to create a card or project inspired by book! I created this card using a pirate image from Elizabeth O Dulemba's coloring pages which she created for Talk Like a Pirate Day. It's such a fun image!

Did you know? International Talk Like a Pirate Day (ITLAPD) is a parodic holiday created in 1995 by John Baur (Ol' Chumbucket) and Mark Summers (Cap'n Slappy), of Albany, Oregon, U.S., who proclaimed 19 September each year as the day when everyone in the world should talk like a pirate. According to Summers, the day is the only holiday to come into being as a result of a sports injury. He has stated that during a racquetball game between Summers and Baur, one of them reacted to the pain with an outburst of "Aaarrr!", and the idea was born. That game took place on June 6, 1995, but out of respect for the observance of D-Day, they chose Summers' ex-wife's birthday, as it would be easy for him to remember.
