MIM #81 with K 'n K Designs

Row, row, row your boat gently down the stream..............


No I haven't completely lost the plot......well maybe I have slight case of cabin fever.

For those of you who don't know, I live in Tropical Far North Queensland Australia and the wet season has definitely arrived!!

Apparently we have had nearly 200mm of rain in the last 24 hours over the weekend . They reckon we will get around another 200mm  over the next 24 hours or so!

So I have managed to squeeze in a little extra craft time in between playing memory games, Mario Kart Wii and baking with my boys.

And although it is still very soggy outside it's not all bad as today brings a brand new linky party over at

I got my card made early for a change this week!!  I got a good head start when I went and spent the day with friends at a fabulous craft store down south called Scrap Therapy (they are an online store too).

The image is one of my favourites from Kenny K and I have coloured her with my Copics.

I picked up this pretty paper at Scrap Therapy while I was there.
 They are from Echo Park and called Seeing Spots.

I am entering my card in to the following challenges:

Ok, now you've seen what I've been working on this week. Let's see what you've been up to!! 

Come on over to Make It Monday and share you latest creation. Or if you haven't found time to get crafty this week but you'd still like to play along how about reviving an old post. No need to create a whole new post just link back to the old one and blow the dust off that creation you were so proud of back then.  Lots of new faces joining us each week that will be seeing it for the first time.

This week we have a special sponsor K 'n K Designs!

K 'n K designs are offering the winner 3 digis from their store!

To be in with a chance to win this fabulous prize all you need to do is leave a comment on an entry in this week's linky party. Be sure to mention you saw them on MIM. The more entries you comment on the more chances you have of winning. 

Sadly K 'n K Designs are closing down at the end of March, which is such a shame as they have such a great range of Digi's. But it does mean that there is a bargain to be had over at the store.

OK, now it's time for me to share with you my favourite pick from last week's linky party.

Of all the (290!!) entries last week this one really stood out to me.

I absolutely love this beautiful Mother's Day gift set.

Michelle this card is beautiful. Your colouring is perfect and you have balanced the arrangement so well with the pennants that I am going to challenge myself to make 10 cards in April using the pennant punch! Thanks for always being so generous and supportive.
