Kenny K's Handyman

Hello everyone!I'm on a roll...4 cards so far this month!!! I have finally dedicated some time to doing what I really love.
Today I showcase a birthday card I made for my husband, Patrick. He has his own painting business and is also a very good handyman. I thought the Kenny K Handyman digi was so him. I'm also into dies at the moment and couldn't wait to use the apron and tools from Marianne Design. I wish I had a pegboard die but since I didn't, I made my own.

Louis Vuitton Handbag Card

Hi everyone,
Today I made my first handbag card. The young lady I gave it to loves designer handbags and this was just perfect. I found the template and tutorial here...only I altered it to make it bigger and to open from the top instead of the bottom.
She loved her card :)

Resting Dude


Hi again! This is a first for me...2 posts in one week!
I'm finally allowing the creativity to flow and making time for something I love so much.
Today's card is for a friend's 20th Birthday. I always look for digital images that in some way reminds me of the person I'm making the card for. Well this guy is really good with computers and I found this digi stamp 'Resting Dude' from Sans Design. I've never coloured such a big scene and was a little scared to add sky and clouds so I left it white. Maybe next time I'll give it a go. I've signed up for Alyce's skin and hair class which I know will help me improve my colouring.
