Something Special for the Ladies...

Hi there, crafty peeps! The time has come again for Team A of Kenny K's Krafty Krew to "shock and awe" you with our renditions of some of Kenny's cool images. A new challenge begins today and this time the theme is "One For the Girls". Before I go any farther though, I need to tell you who our sponsors are this week. First up is our own incredibly talented Kenny K.

with 5 free digis of the winner's choice


with a $20 gift voucher for her shop!!!

Now that's done, let's talk about the challenge and my inspirational project for it. When one of my close girlfriends has a birthday or some other auspicious occasion, I tend to create a special card for her like one I would want to receive. Now, how I design it depends completely on the recipient's personality. Most of the people I gravitate toward are a bit on the quirky side, mostly personable and outspoken, somewhat artsy fartsy and a tiny bit mischievous (okay, yes... like ME)! I knew you weren't going to allow me to cop out on that one! Sooo... anyway, the card I made for this challenge is definitely one I wouldn't mind receiving.   

I used one of Kenny's very sexy men in the Heartbreakers Collection called "Romeo". This dude is one hot hunk, let me tell ya! As a wise woman I once knew used to say, "He can eat crackers in my bed any time!" That wise woman was my lovely mom. Right again! The apple doesn't fall far from the tree! Heh heh!

So without further ado, here he is... the beautiful, sexy Romeo!

Just look at those pecs and that six pack!! Whew!

And the eyes! I don't know about you but the eyes are what always get to me!

I purposely kept the design simple as I didn't want anything to detract from the focal point... (as if anything could!). In case you're a newer follower or for some other reason aren't familiar with my work, I colored this glorious digi with my Copic markers.

And a closeup just to tease you a little!

And here's the unfinished inside. I'll put a sentiment of some sort in here when I decide who the card is going to and for what occasion.

Okay, ladies (and gents too if you're of the persuasion)... tell the truth! Raise your hands if you wouldn't mind having a boy toy that looked like this guy! Of course, I'd be hard pressed to keep up with one like him these days but I'd sure love to give it a go just once! LOL! I'm probably a lot more talk than action but a girl can dream, can't she? 

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
