Kenny K Harley Ryder

Hello my lovlies! It's almost 11:00 P.M. on Thursday night and I'm supposed to be busy packing for a trip! I'm leaving for a week long cruise to the Western Caribbean on Saturday with my husband, my oldest daughter, Nerissa and her husband.  Nothing like leaving everything for the last minute! If only I could make myself stop coloring...haha! And in my mind I'm still thinking I can color and make up one more card for a Kraftin Kimmie challenge. Now I'm really haha-ing!
This will be the first of two cruises I'll be going on this year, and this will be cruise three of four so far with another(#5) already booked for 2013. This is what happens when you marry a Pisces...they just love to travel! Me being a Cancer, I enjoy traveling but I still really enjoy my home and the comforts it holds. I told my husband that we should just live in a motor home and that way we could have the best of both worlds! Of course once I get the sand between my toes, the sun on my face, and the tropical winds in my hair, I'm not going to want to come back! We're also meeting up with friends we met on the High Seas Rally cruise a couple of years ago. Two awesome couples that love life and love to have fun. Can't wait to see them again!
This cruise stops at Cozumel, Belize, Roatang, and the Grand Caymans. We've never been to Roatang or Belize so that will be new. And holidaying with my daughter and her husband will be a lot of fun. I'm looking forward to some mother/daughter bonding time.
Oh came here to look at my card, not read all about how hard done by I am that I have to go on a tropical holiday. (: Okay, so here's my latest card. I made it to enter into the Kenny K Krafty Girlz challenge going on this week which was a recipe: 1 image, 2 papers, and 3 embellishments or 3 kinds of embellishments.
I got cooking and this is what I came up with... I used two of the new Heidi Swap file folder papers called sugar chic. My three embellishments were the metal flowers,(a gift from Shelby) the turquoise rhinestones, and the silver embossed flourish I made. The image of course is a Kenny K Krash Kittenz digi called Harley Ryder.
She was a lot of fun to color. I originally colored in her stomach area so it looked like she was wearing a one piece suit but decided she need to have more skin showing so I printed, colored, and paper pieced another stomach section on top of what i had already colored. I used stickles "star dust" on her boots and then applied some crystal effects over top of that as well as on her glasses. You can't really tell from the pictures but I used a Spica "clear" pen on the blonde highlights of her hair and as a highlighter eyeshadow.  The sentiment was from a SU set and I used a Whimsy ticket die cut to cut it out. I used a brick wall embossing folder and just embossed half of the round die cut I had cut out. Inked the wall up with more TH distress inks and used my Bev Rochester cloud template to make the cloudy sky. I inked the edges of the papers with TH walnut stain distress ink.
I used a card sketch from The Sweet Shop. I have to say I'm really enjoying using the sketches to construct my cards. Who knew?!
I have a lot of Harley girlfriends and thought this would be a perfect birthday card for one of them.
Well my husband will be phoning me right away to check up on me see how my packing is coming along so I should go try a few of my summer clothes on and find out what still fits me, what's getting packed, and what I have to shop for tomorrow.
...if I don't get that one last card made tomorrow then I'll be back in about 10 days or so when I get back from swimming with the stingrays!...miss you already!

Gorgeous card! Harley is one of my favs - which I also colored in as a one piece suit. Great idea to save the stomach instead of recoloring the entire image.
10 days without your creations?! Enjoy your trip! I'll try not to be too jealous.

I just love this card and the way you have coloured her in is just amazing, if only I could colour like that :(.

Funny story, I was commenting the other day on another lady' card who had used a KennyK sexy image and my good friend (guy) was behind me. He is suddenly interested in card making and has asked for me to make him his next birthday card, if only he knew how terrible I am at colouring :) :)

Have a lovely time on your cruise. I am going for my first cruise next month, can't wait :)

Thanks so much for entering your card at Anything goes, Just keep on creating. I hope you will contiue to play along

Congrats Debora on being featured over at Just Keep on Crafting. It says a lot to be picked out of 600 or so entries. I recognized you from your picture, and of then of course when I came to your blog I remembered seeing it after I met you just after you joined us at the Outlawz site. Great work!
