Club KennyK Challenge card.. with a twist….ed sense of humor.

The minute I saw her, I knew I had to have some fun with this one…. she’s just too dang cute to be scarey. I grew up loving 50’s music, songs like “Love Potion No.9”  and when I saw this image that is exactly what popped into my head.

So here she is..  my naughty lil witch looking for love.  “Book of Spells” by KennyK.  she is part of the New Releases that came out recently.  If you missed that post, go check them out 🙂

Colored with Chameleon Pens  then scanned in.. given digital borders and hearts and reprinted on canvas paper for a lush deep color and texture.  I love my Epson Eco tank Printer, I no longer worry about printing out  in color and heavy black borders… *wub and running out of Ink too soon.

She is foam padded for an elevated effect and the background card is from the Red 12×12 Craft Smith pads, punched with a Fiskars heart border for a little extra fun.  The close up below shows how gorgeous this canvas is….

I entered her in the current Club KennyK challenge over on Facebook… and I think I’ll be sending this over to one of my witchy friends so she can give it to her hubby…she’ll get a kick out  of this one  🙂

End of Series Giveaways – Updates

Well… we are, over half way through the Spotlight Series.. so time to start pulling together all of the giveaway prizes on offer.  I will start listing them all here …. this list may change over the next two weeks…so expect edits on this post 🙂  This is just a fun giveaway and an opportunity for  the spotlight guests  and of course myself to thank you, the visitors, crafters, fans and group members for your interest and support of this Spotlight Series.spotlight_giveaway-sneaky

Each one will have its own giveaway page which will be opened for comments on the 1st  of July.

Once it is open for comments… you will need to enter each one you are interested in, individually.   All you have to do is comment on the giveaway post “I commented” AND have commented on the sponsors spotlight post.  So if you haven’t been leaving comments on the daily guest spotlights .. now is the time to play catch up LOL.  Not all spotlight guests are able to offer prizes;  so their spotlight may be sponsored by an external sponsor, but you will still need to comment on the spotlight to enter.

If it’s a non spotlight sponsor,  the giveaway post will have details on what you need to do to enter those.

Winners will be picked randomly and will be posted  here on the blog on/around the 15th of July.

Some are open to the US only, some are worldwide and will be duly noted on each giveaway.. please verify you are eligible to enter.

I reserve the rights to modify this list as needed before the official start date of the giveaways.

Prize list so far

**TBD  – To Be Determined

 

Additional Sponsor Prizes:

Keep checking back to see who & what else gets added to the list as we continue into the latter half of  the Spotlight Series 🙂
