Kenny K's Krafty Girlz

The challenge at Kenny K's this week is Santa is on his way so I quickly made this card for the challenge as I am trying to finish some orders and not succeeding very quickly- doing everything apart from them

even made some cheese scones- check me out!!!! not baked for years but felt the notion to make some today

Are they edible??- well tried one on the dogs first so if they say they are fine then they are fit for human consumption and they seemed to go down well with them

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday

Quite a productive weekend , had lots of chores to do and samples to make for a new Funky Hand CD so got on with those and this card was my little play.

Now I'm off for an early bath and get my hair washed then settle down to watch X Factor and have a well deserved rest.

Kenny K's Krafty Girlz

Good evening from a very wet Hamilton here- lots of roads shut due to flooding and had to take the long road home from work today as the main one was shut so Iam glad to be at home now and tucked up in the house.

This is my card for the Kenny K challenge this week which is all about Autumn

Papers by K & Co and I love this Madison image from Kenny K
Off now to get a nice hot bath then watch Doc Martin before getting an early night

Kenny K's Krafty Girlz and Totally Gorjuss

At Kenny K's this weeks the challenge is to make a shaped card and at Totally Gorjuss the challenge is Ooh La La so my next card is for that challenge

the paper is by Funky Hand and it is one of my favourite papers and i just realised that in Craft Studio I can change the colour of it so I made it pink for this ooh La La very girly card- so be warned I might be changing all my favourite papers now to suit the colour scheme

Took me ages to make these today as the tendonitis in my hand is back and very painful but decided it needed some exercise instead of doing nothing- bet it's worse tonight! think I need to teach the dogs how to work my bug and punches for when it flares up.
Hope you had a lovely weekend

Kenny K's Krafty Girlz

The challenge this week at Kenny K's is all about the girls and you have to use more than one of the girly images and your favourite dies. so this is my card for the challenge.Maybe this is her daytime look and her night time look!
I used my favourite circle die to make the flower
Supposed to be getting on with some orders but decided to have a little play first so better muster up some mojo and get on with it and can't believe it's only Tuesday... the weekend seems soooo long away

Bye for now

The challenge at Allsorts this week is to use at least five flowers so I suspended three with acetate and put two on my card base.
The papers are from a Me and My Big Ideas black and white pad.
it is still warm here although it is raining and I am so sad about that as I was going to cut my grass and here I am having to craft instead... hehe.. but did manage to get some housework done and a couple of washings so it's not all been fun
Hope you are having a lovely weekend
