October KennyK Monthly Digi Challenge

Over on the message board the monthly KennyK challenge is to create a card using the  KennyK October Freebie… Frankie Knuckles.

I’m still working on mine, but here is a hint…. haha well you didn’t really expect me to show my hand did you?  Come on over an join us on the message board to see how this one turned out and what the other ladies came up with.


October – I am the Executioner – Card Challenge!!!!

Our monthly Executioner challenge is designed to learn and try new techniques you may not have done before. This month the challenge set by our October Host NanaDonna is to create a Diamond Fold and/or Drape fold card, two techniques I personally haven’t tried before.

Here are my two challenge pieces..I did both techniques.  I found the diamond fold one tricky to begin with, but I think with a little practice this one would be a real quick and easy but very effective technique to use.

Come on over and join us for some challenges on the message board.. we have 5 monthly challenges and our regular Bi Weekly card challenge.
