Happy Birthday Kenny K Challenges!

Hidy Ho! 

This week marks the 2nd birthday of Kenny K Challenges! Now, for most people...turning 2 conjures up feelings of dread at the anticipation of oncoming temper tantrums, stubbornness and that word..."NO".

In order to have a chance to win this HUGE & FANTABULOUS prize package you will need to do a few things first...
  1. Visit the blogs of each of this week's Krafty Krew and leave a comment on their creation and then...
  2. Make a project for this week's challenge--AND BE SURE TO USE A KENNY K STAMP...otherwise, you aren't eligible for the prize-o-rama.
  3. When you have fulfilled the above criteria please leave a comment on the Krafty Krew blog to let us know you have completed the hop!

Without further ado...Our theme this week is:
Big Birthdays
We'd like to see projects for those special celebrations Like 18, 21, 30, 40 and Beyond!

If you landed here from Tammy's coolio blog, then you're in the right place! For today's Blog Hoppening, I decided to celebrate the FaBuLoUs age of 50!! I mean, 50 is the new 30, amiright? (Y'all know that I turned 50 this year, so just humor me). 

For my project I colored up the superfab image of "Super Mom" with my trusty Prismacolor pencils. She reminds me of a cross between Lucy and Mrs. Cleaver. I think she's cute as a bug's ear (yes, bugs have ears...sheesh). The rest of the card just sort of evolved. I wanted it to look retro-50ish...like a kitschy kitchen. And, I HAD to add pearls. Had to...or it would not have been complete. And yes...that is REALLY old patterned paper from Flair on the background. But hey, it works.


I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:


Ingredients: 
Super Mom image - Kenny K
Prismacolor colored pencils
Patterned papers - DCWV (Nana's Kitchen), Flair
Pearls - Michaels 
Scallop edge punch - Martha Stewart for EK Success
Scallop edge scissors - Fiskars
Cuttlebug Dotted embossing folder - Provo Craft
