Something different - Kenny K for Jack

Hi all

I was really chuffed that over on Lets Ink It Up I was picked as one of the Top 3 for last weeks challenge!! I had entered my vintage tag book... thanks girls, my badge is on my blog's lapel and being worn with pride!!

Zaid's friend Jack is turning 15 on Monday and went to a sleepover at his house last night. I thought at 14 Zaid would have preferred a shop bought card and he would think a handmade card by Mum is not the done thing anymore, but he flatly refused a shop bought card insisting all his friends look forward to getting a card off him LOL!

This is the first time I have used a Kenny K image, this one is a freebie download available for September. Just wanted to make something quick, easy and unfussy so I coloured the image in using my trusty Promakers, papers are from my Creative Craft World DT kit and are by Cherry Arte - Basic Blue. Incidentally CCW has free P & P on UK orders until midnight tonight!

I am entering this into the new Kenny K challenge which is to include stitching on the card so as I have had such a disastrous week with killing things off I thought I better stay clear of a needle and thread lol!
I am also entering this into the following challenges:
Stamping Vacation - No, No challenge (no sparkle)

Sarah Hurley - Polka dots and circles


  1. Hi sarah =- this is fab! I bet Jack loves it... and of course no shop bought cards! Michael suggested nipping out to get a card for hi neice the other day and i nearly clonked him one with the rolling pin! I said there's no way when you cant move in my dining room for paper,glue,glitter,stamps and more - that you are going out and buying a card!!
    I love the paper pieced jacket..and the distressed edges ,
    Lisa ;)
    ps - over at Sarah Hurley this week our theme is polka dots!
