It’s Kenny K Krafty Girlz challenge day today and the theme is Bold and Bright. Team B have made some fabulous bold and bright cards too.

I am so late with my posting today – my hubby gave us another scare on Friday night and was taken in to hospital by ambulance. He was not kept in thankfully as he is seeing a cardiologist on Tuesday but I tell ya I don’t know how much more of this I can take, I am so worried and scared. My head is all over the place, so much so that I can’t even concentrate on making cards (usually I can get lost up here playing but that’s not the case now). Anyhow, I managed to get this card made the other day following the challenge on Friday Sketchers


I have used Star for this card and have coloured her with Copics:

Skin: E21, E00, E000, R20
Hair: C9, C7, C5, C3, C1, C0
Clothes, boots, guitar: C9, C7, C5, C3, C1, R85, R83, R81
Shadow: W5, W3, W1, W00, Blender

I applied Stickles Stardust to her boots and parts of the guitar and her bangles.


The ticket sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps – love these, the fonts and sentiments are gorgeous. The papers are MME. The flower is a flat gardenia from Wild Orchid Crafts, all I did was pull the stamens out and pop a 15mm rose in the centre and sprits with Pearl Glimmer Mist – voila a “Prima! flower at a 10th of the price!!


I came across the cute guitar charm when I was looking for the Joy charms, soon as I saw it I knew it would be perfect for these KennyK images.

Right that’s all from me today, I am off to ask my hubby for the 100th time this morning if he feels okay lol. Enjoy the rest of your day and go and give your fella a hug!!

Thanks for stopping by,

    Your card is gorgeous as ever Bev.Both of you take care.

  22. Hi Bev
    your card (as always) is lovely. As for your hubby, I'm so sorry that he has another bad turn, I still can not understand WHY ???? is the hospitial not finding out the reason for it happening, surely they shouldn't send him home until they have found the cause. You both must be living on a knife edge at the moment, and my heart goes out to you both. It may be worth a phone call to the cardiologist secretary today, explain to her/him that he has had another bad turn and they will (I'm sure) bring the appiontment forward,(when you are paying privately, it is a completely different ball game to the N.H.S.). Tuesday must seem like a lifetime away at the moment.

    Huge huge hugs to you both
    Sandra (craftynan)

  23. Hi Bev,

You are both in my prayers.
