Tic Tac Toe at KKKK!

Hello Crafty Folk,

It's time for a new challenge at Kenny K's Krafty Krew and this one really made me put my thinking cap on.


For my DT piece I chose the fourth line down, but you can do any line you like, vertically or horizontally.

I also got to use a brand new release from Kenny K, her name is Texting Diva.

So you can see I have swirls (thanks to an embossing folder), digi image (Miss Texting Diva herself), ribbon (two types) and die cuts (tag, circle and the scalloped oval). I also added a cute little flower charm and a stamped sentiment to finish it off.

We have three awsome sponsors over at KKKK this week

with a $20 voucher

with a $10 voucher

with some fabulous crafty goodies.

I hope you'll come and play with us for your chance to win, and to show off your tic tac toe skills!

This card is also entered into the following challenges:

Paper Crafting Journey - Use a Sentiment
Sweet Stampin' - Anything but a birthday
Stampin' for the Weekend - Die cuts and/or punches
Crafty Ribbons - Anything Goes with Ribbon

Dies and Punches at KKKK

Happy Sunday Everyone!

It's time for a new challenge at Kenny K's Krafty Krew and our theme this week is


That's right, if you use dies or punches on your creation this week we want to see it!

For my DT card this week I used the awesome image Groove Dude. Kenny K has some great images for guys, and this one is my new favourite.

I made this card for a friend's 30th. I love the metal tag with its "Enjoy the journey" sentiment. I forgot to jot down the names of the DPs, but I love the colour combination of olive green, orange, brown and blue, and used that combination for colouring my image with copics.

I bought some mesh style brown ribbon and blue twine to finish this card - it's so hard to find man style embellishments isn't it?

Our challenge this week is sponsored by Kenny K with 5 digi images


with a $20 voucher.

I hope you'll come and join us this week.

Easter or Passover at TSTF

Hello again,

Another late post from me - this time it's my card for The Squirrel and The Fox.

Our challenge has been underway for a week, but what with holidays and then hubby in hospital I am only just now getting around to posting. Funnily enough I was super organised for this one, my card was made ages ago!


Our challenge this fortnight is sponsored by Sweet 'n Sassy and I used this adorable image for my card.

I paper pieced the Easter Egg in the image, and coloured the little mouse with copics. The sentiment is a stamp from CC Designs.

Come join us at The Squirrel and The Fox for our Easter or Passover theme for your chance to win three digi images from Sweet 'n Sassy.

I hope you have all had a lovely Easter and enjoyed your break.


Being Square at KKKK

Hello Everyone!

I apologise for the late post, this has been a bit of a nightmare week with my husband in hospital. He took ill when we were on holidays so needless to say that was not the most relaxing of holidays. He is home now and on bed rest, and finding it very difficult to keep still. I had to wrestle the lawn mower from him and do the lawns myself this morning.

Anyway, it's time for a new challenge at Kenny K's Krafty Krew and this time the theme is:


Fortunately I had a card made that fit the bill perfectly for my DT work and hadn't ever posted. So while it's not new to me, it's new to blogland and hasn't been entered into challenges before.

The image is Dirt Bike Mike, and isn't he just an awesome image for a guy card? I made this card for a friend's brother, and coloured him up to match his bike and bike gear. I used scraps of red and blue cardstock and a square of denim paper. Some chrome eyelets and a snippet of blue ribbon and it was done.

Our challenge this fortnight is sponsored by Kenny K, with a $20 voucher

and Bearly Mine Designs with a £10 voucher

I hope you'll join us at Kenny K's Krafty Krew with your square creations this week!
