Kenny K Valentine card

Well, this card WAS for last weeks Kenny K challenge but I"ve just been informed that this weeks challenge is CIRCLES, so I kinda sorta qualify for that one!! LO So, I"m gonna enter it anyway..what the heck!!!!!

This is Racey Roxie, from Kenny K's Krash Kittenz collection. I coloured her with Copics then cut her out and pop dotted her in the oval. The DP is from that Martha Stewart mat pad I bought awhile ago. Kept it simple with no "froofie" things since this is for Tim for Valentine's Day!

I am also entering this card in the following challenges:

The Crazy Challenge

The Pink Elephant Challenge

Simon Says....Anything But a Card


This week at Simon Says, we have an awesome challenge for you! If you head to the CHALLENGE BLOG, you will find out that the challenge this week is ANYTHING BUT A CARD..... and the Design Team's fabulous creations are there too!!! The Design Team is showcasing Tim Holtz...and holy man, there are a TON of options for using any of Tim's products - and Simon Says Stamp has it ALL!!!!!!

Here is the notebook I made:

IT is not a "typical" Tim Holtz-y project but that just isn't "me"....but I used a LOT of TH stuff!!!! I used Tim Holtz RETRO GRUNGE Designer paper for the base & insides (it really is green, although it is hard to tell!). The orange is a piece of SU paper from Sunny Garden DP. Then, I took a piece of Tim Holtz's Grunge Paper and ran it through my Cuttlebug with a Labels One Nestability. I spritzed it with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist (Lily Pad). The image is Magnolia, and I coloured Midsummer Tilda with Copics. The sentiment is from a Tim Holtz set called Odds & Ends. The rhinestones are also from my stash! You can get ALL of those supplies from Simon Says Stamp Superstore! How awesome is that?!?!?!

Here is the inside - I completely dismantle the notebook - coil, paper & both covers; then I cover them completely, so it doesn't matter how ugly they are underneath....they become beautiful when I'm done!!

Remember, if you join us this week, you get a chance to win a $50 SPREE from SIMON SAYS STAMP SUPERSTORE!!!! Wooooooooo hoooooooooooo!!!! So, what are you waiting for?? Go check out the DT samples and come play with us!!!!!

This weeks freebie (& bonus image) from Faith at Designed2Delight is called "Kittens big heart". I just used the heart image for this card, and printed it quite large. I coloured it with Copics then covered it with Crystal Stickles. The paper is from a DP pack from K & Company called Life's Journey. I was on a bit of a roll with that paper so you might see a few cards with this paper - its so pretty!!!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great Tuesday!!

Incy Wincy Designs Challenge - LOVE

This weeks challenge at Incy Wincy Designs is LOVE!! There are a TON of LOVE/Valentines challenges so you better be sure to head there and link up for a chance to win some great prizes!!!! This week I used an image from Di's Digi Downloads .

I used a round card base that I got from Michael's in the $1.50 bin - I liked the colour; it's not really red but not really pink either! It matches the DP from K & Company perfectly. I coloured Cookie with my Koh-i-noor pencils and Gamsol. The sentiment is from a TAC set and the rhinestones are from my overflowing stash of bling!! LOL

Head on over to the challenge blog to see what the rest of the DT have created for you and then head on down to Mr. Linky and join us!!!!

Have a GREAT week!!!
