Arrrrghhhh Matey! Pirate Edwin Sending Out Love

Nearly all of my family lives in Illinois while I am in Minnesota.  Granted a 6 hour drive isn't too terribly bad, but we don't find ourselves making it more than once or twice a year.  Between those visits I like to send my loved ones cards and care packages to let them know they're in my thoughts.  In the past week I've been working on putting together a card using Edwin and some berries found in the floral department.  I'm not entirely sure why, but I'm a big fan of all things pirate.  Actually my DH and I went as pirates for Halloween a couple of years ago.  Perhaps in a past life I searched for treasure and had an unhealthy obsession with buckles.  Ha!
Hope you are all enjoying a nice long weekend as I am!
