Kenny K's Krafty Girlz Challenge #11 - Stitch It

Woo Hoo it's school holidays YAY!!

I absolutely love school holidays!
My boys are on two weeks spring break now and we have lots of fun activities planned but most importantly I am just so happy not to have to drive in and out of town every day for the school run. No getting up early to pack lunches etc  (well, I do still have to pack Hubby's lunch during the second week as he is only taking the first week off work).

I'm really hoping too that my Mojo might actually make an appearance this school holidays.

I do have a card for you today though, for Kenny K's Krafty Girlz Challenge. Team B's turn this week to inspire you with our cards. We want to see some stitching this week be it real or faux. (Mine is definitely faux as I don't exactly have a great working relationship with my sewing machine!).

I have used Bodacious Bev on my card and I have coloured her and the flowers with my Copics.

I hand drew and cut out the hinges for the side of the card from black cardstock.

Hop on over to the Kenny K's Krafty Girlz Challenge Blog and check out the rest of Team B's fabulous cards.

Remember that if you use one of Kenny's awesome images on your card you will be in the running to win some free digi's.

I look forward to stopping by and checking out your fabulous creations.

I am linking my card up to the following challenges:

Sarah Hurley Challenge  - Polka Dots and Circles
Stamp Something - September Digi Day challenge
Secret Crafter - Anything Goes
Creative Inspirations - Pink and Black

Remember also that my "Make It Monday" linky party (see top of my blog) starts again tomorrow and you will be able to link your cards up there too.

Have a great day!

Michelle :-)

Pink and black always look stunning together... the hinges look so real. And the image is great.

I am so glad you have a respite from packing lunches for the boys - too bad you still have to do that for a week for hubby dear.

Great card - I love the layout and the colors!

It is strange to read that your children are on Spring Break and here the children have recently returned to school and it is early Fall! The leaves are starting to turn and the weather is very cool and rainy! :<)

I hope that you enjoy the time with the chidren and being able to sleep in a bit - have lots of fun! :<)

Wishing you a good week!
