Oops, I did it yet again

Trotted off on holiday without making a card needed a few days after we returned home, and even worse forgot about it until the very day it should have been there last week. And EVEN worse, it was for a boy - which I always struggle with anyhow :( Kenny K to the rescue:
I used:

- 6" x 6" square white card blank

- pre-coloured and die cut Kenny K image

- papers from papers from the 'Quilting Bee' paper pad by My Mind's Eye, the red dog tooth check is the first cut into the sheet I ended up using as a snippet on Sunday's card - as I said then, although the fronts of most papers are sewing themed, the reverses are perfect for cards for chaps, young and old

- sentiment is by Craftwork Cards, popped onto more red dog tooth check paper

- red card candi dots

Card made in 10 minutes flat, literally. You can see by the blurred photo that I was hopping up and down with stress before running out to post it!



  1. Lucky you had this fantastic digital image! It's hard to do cards for boys I think and I've got 4 grandsons! Can't wait to see your stars!

  2. Nice KennyK image and you done it proud. Love those papers you chose, and a perfect S/B to die cut this sweet little Mr. Good for you...for a quick last minute, this one shines. Hugs

  3. Brilliant Di, and just perfect,

  4. Terrific card for a boy Di. Can't believe you made it in 10 mins but I'll take your word for it!

  8. Fabulous card, Di. Kenny K is a good port of call when looking for images for the boys ... my grandson's really appreciate them. And that paper pad is worth investing in, if only for the 'b' sides :) You can relax now ... it's done and it's in the post! Hugs, Elizabeth xx

  9. Take a deep breath now Miss - it is in the hands of Mr Postie!

  16. Brilliant card, the papers are perfect for a the image and what a boon those pre-coloured images are at a time like this.
