It's Challenge Time Again at Kenny K's Krafty Krew!

Hi, friends, and Happy Sunday! I hope you all had a lovely weekend! I'm so happy that the summer temps seem to have departed (hopefully for good!) and that Autumn is here at long last! People ask me all the time why I choose to live in Texas when I hate the hot weather so much.  The answer is simple... this is where my whole family is and I can't imagine moving far enough away to escape the heat when it would mean not seeing the ones I love and care for.

Well, as the title of this post says, it's time again for another new challenge at Kenny K's and this time it's Team A's turn to host.  The theme is Black and White + One Other Color and for my card, the other color I chose is red.  I have always thought black and red was a sexy combination and as you can see in the pictures, the image I used is pretty sexy so it just made sense.  This lovely lady is one of Kenny's Steampunk Burlesque collection named Scarlett West and she can be purchased here. I love her attitude and the smoke curling out of the barrel of her gun! She definitely sends a message of "Don't mess with me!" Haha!

Our sponsors for this challenge are:

with 5 digis of the winner's choice


with a prize of (I'm not sure yet but I'll post it when I find out).

Did you read the inside? The image reminded me of a song... if you have recently listened to a country music radio station, you have likely heard "Before He Cheats" by Carrie Underwood.  Of course, I would never dream of doing any such thing! LOL!! I do admit to having been tempted a couple of times in my life however and was it not against the law, the ol' devil might actually have won that struggle!. ; ) 

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

The Outlawz Copic Promarker Challenge 9/14 - The Elements (Earth, Air, Fire, Water)

Well, there you have it.  I hope you'll visit the Kenny K Krafty Krew for more inspiration from my incredibly talented teamies.  We'd love to see your black, white + 1 creation in the challenge too.  Don't miss your chance to win one of the awesome prizes being offered.  Have a wonderful week and until next time...

Happy crafting!

Challenge Time at Saturated Canary

Hi, all you Saturated Canary fans! You're here just in time because today starts a new challenge on the SC Challenge blog! The theme this time is "All the B's" so you need to incorporate at least two items into your design that begin with the letter "B".  On my card, which features Krista's lovely Sisters Back 2 School digi, I used books, bling, blossoms, blue and blackboard.  I was going to include some buttons but I ran out of room! Go figure! LOL

This image, which I colored with Copics, reminds me of my sister and me when we were kids.  She was 6 years my junior and was always into my "stuff", flirted with my boyfriends and got me into trouble with our parents for getting mad about it! LOL Even the hair colors match! We didn't like each other very much (though we always loved each other as siblings) until we became adults. I lost her to breast cancer 2 years ago and I miss her so very much still.

I just love this image and even though I realize I'm a little late with the back to school theme, I just felt compelled to make this card.  I really like how it turned out.  Sadly, this will be my last challenge with Krista's team as my time as guest designer draws to an end.  I am really going to miss it but I'll be entering the challenges just as I did before I was invited to join the team for the summer.  I hope that I have, in some way, inspired you to join the fun at Saturated Canary Challenge Blog.  And don't forget to use your B's! Now, while you're all enamored with Krista's awesome artwork, why don't you mosey on over to the challenge blog and see what the other designers have created.  I have seen their projects and they are fabulous!

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Blog Quick Quotes Friday Challenge #19 - Cards

Thank you sooo much for dropping in on me today.  I always appreciate your feedback and will try to answer any questions you may have if you'll put them in a comment for me.  Be kind to each other and have a great weekend! Until next time...

Happy crafting!

Challenge #109 at Kenny K's Krafty Krew

Hello everybody! For those of my readers in the U.S., Happy Labor Day! I can't believe September is here already and that Halloween is just around the corner now! I swear that the later in the year it gets, the faster the hands on the clock are moving! I'm having my 3rd and final garage sale this weekend, trying to get rid of the last bit of stuff that I have decided to get rid of. I have had to make some very difficult decisions with regard to what I should keep and what I should sell/discard. I never thought I could get to this point but I'm pleased to say that so far, I have stuck to my plan.

This week marks the start of another new challenge at Kenny K's Krafty Krew and this week Team A is providing the inspiration for the theme, Back to School. For my card, I used Kenny's digi stamp called "Freshman" and you can purchase her here.

This next 2 photos show the inside of the card.

Be sure to visit the Krafty Krew blog to see what my illustrious teammates have created for your viewing pleasure. I took a quick peek and their projects are fabulous!!

That's it for this week. Tomorrow is the last day of my garage sale and I'll be so glad for it to end. Let me tell you that August/September is NOT the optimal time to have a garage sale in Texas!! It was 100 degrees today and 107 when I had my last sale. I drink about a gallon of water or more a day just to stay hydrated but it's a necessary evil for me because other than donating everything and not making a penny from it, it was the only other option. It's helping finance my relocation though so it's worth the discomfort and the back-breaking effort.

Have a wonderful week, everyone! I'll be back soon with another post.  Until next time....

Happy crafting!
