May Crafty Awesomeness Challenge

Well  this year is zooming past… it’s May already and  what a month April was. I’m afraid I am a bit tied up with some personal business, but  hoping to get back in the swing of things really soon.

The ladies have been busy playing with some fun images by this months sponsor, Rick St Dennis MFT. Rick is well known for his fabulous, fun and dare I say not so “cute” style of images.  If you haven’t run across him yet, you should check them out.  If you like something a little different and are bored of unicorns and fairies..or just want something a bit but more on the dark side, he most definitely has those too.

This months prize is 2 digi of choice (no sets, sheets, or pdf coloringbooks) for 1 prize winner

So here we are,  this months DT projects .. minus one that is running behind *cough sorry lol.. I promise it’s coming.

The Top 3 will be chosen by KennyK’s Krafty Krew….Prize will be 1 digi to each of the Top 3!

Remember you MUST use a KennyK stamp to be eligible for a prize!
