Kenny K Journal and a Sale!

Hey All! Wow how the days just fly by! I cannot believe  we are almost in OCTOBER! Really?!? Geez just a couple more months till Christmas and then a new year is upon us. WOW! 

Now; I cannot find my cable to load pictures from my camera so I am using my phone to take pictures and then e-mailing to myself. My son loves cords; if there is one out in the open he gets it and just loves dragging them along. So we are constrantly taking cables away from him. So I have a cubard full of all sorts of cords but not the one I need. I will update these pictures as soon as I find my cable.

Mistletoe Mwah with Mula!

Hello All! Hope everyone is doing fantastic and is ready to see something cool; well I think it's cool anyway:0)

Today I am sharing a folded card that I have made into be a money/gift card holder for Inspirational Monday post for Crafter's Companion Challenge Blog.

Here is my finished card using one of the new Strawberry Kisses Christmas images. FYI they are super cute and for sale NOW at the Crafter's Companion Store. This set is called Mistletoe Mwah!
 Here is a closeup of the super sweet couple colored with Spectrum Noir Markers.
 And here is the inside of the card; I love the double sided paper and how fast and easy it was to make this card.
 Another shot of the finished card...
Okay so if you are wondering how I made this; I have taken pictures and will show you how I have made the base of this card:0) I have started with a 12x6 paper and scored at 3.5 and 7.5 inches in. So you will have a small, medium and large panel. I know WEIRD; but it works trust me!
 Then on the large panel I have used a border punch (LOVE this one) which then makes the middle and last panel the same size:0)
 I then fold the page inward. Here is a shot of the inside; I have used the lines in the paper to cut a diagonal piece. Then just glue the bottom of that part to keep the money from falling out.
So that is it for the base; I then wrapped a doily around it, popped up the image, added the banners and buttons and my card was complete with twine and a few pearls. Easy peasy I tell you!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

 The Squirrel & the Fox -Anything Goes, Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything Goes, The Hybrid Chick Card Caravan -Pop It Up

Red Truck!

 Hello everyone! Hopefully everyone is doing great and having a break from the heat. Here in Bakersfield it has been below 100 degrees and that for us is just great. Yesterday there were some scattered showers which I just love because this means that fall and winter are just around the corner. Winter is my favorite season; so I am super happy to be sharing a Christmas card that I have made for my Crafter's Companion Informational Blog post.

I used a stamp from the Sheena Douglas Festive set called "Christmas is Coming" which is the perfect reminder that Christmas is on its way! This stamp will soon be released and available at the Crafter's Companion Store.
 Here is a closer view of the truck; I just had to color it red:0) I have used Spectrum Noir Markers
super fun and quick as this image doesn't have too much to color:0) I have used DR8, DR1, CR11.
 Well that is all for me today; til next time:0)
