CSAYL: Kenny K Inspiration ~

Hey there, CSAYL friends!  I can hardly believe it, but we’ve arrived at the final Christmas Stampin’ All Year Long challenge of 2011!  I really wanted to get all of my projects and cards together for one shot for you but ran out of time this morning…perhaps I’ll update this post later!  That would be fun to see and would help me round everything up for the holiday craziness ahead  lol

pinterest - Kenny KCheck out this gorgeous inspiration photo!  We want you to pick whatever speaks to you from it and make a card, layout or whatever floats your boat!  We are sponsored this week by Kenny K digi stamps.  Such a wonderful and fun line!  Last time we were sponsored by Kenny K, I chose one of the more va-va-voom characters, Mistletoe.  For this time, I tamed it down with the new Boy Gift.  Such a great image because it really doesn’t have to be used just for Christmas!  Gotta love a little versatility! {wink}

I chose the colors from the photo as inspiration – sagey green, pine needle green, white and silver.  The dots and bow of the present are colored with a silver AtYou Spica pen.  I actually have a funny little story about this card…my printer has been telling me for the last 3 months that it needs ink.  Well, it’s always printed out a perfect picture or image, so the ink cartridges have been set on the back burner.  Not this time! Some of the lines weren’t even visible!  And of course, I left making this card to the very last minute.  I’ve been wanting to try the *no lines* coloring technique, but I didn’t want to be forced into it!  lol  I ended up coloring the image and going over every line with a multiliner.  Ha!  The printer couldn’t fool this Queen of Procrastination!!

Bop on over to the Christmas Stampin’ All Year Long blog to catch up on all the rules and prizes.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  I’m looking forward to a little crafting down time and only creating when I feel like it, so this blog may be quiet for a bit.  We’ll see…you never know when creativity and the need to create will strike!  Have a super weekend, friends!  Smilelyss
