Rock That Card

"I love rock & roll" is what my card today says. I love this image from Kenny K, called Rock Chick. I got to play with her for the newest Craft Your Passion challenge starting today.
After coloring Rock Chick, I framed her in cardstock, distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Tattered Roses ink, and added a tiny piece of leftover sticker.
I had fun creating my card background. Some Prima patterned paper sets the mood, and various trim and stickers highlight her passion.
What's your passion (besides paper crafting, that is)? I love to listen to my iPod, bike, read and water color (just not at the same time).
Whatever it is, enjoy what you do. And if you love to create, hop on over to Craft Your Passion challenge blog for another Anything Goes challenge this week. Kenny K Designs is the sponsor this week, and you can have a lot of fun with his images!!
The party is in its final days, so if you've just visited my blog, go back to my April 1 post. I have some amazing prizes from sponsors and favorite designers, including Creative Bug Design, Ike's Art, Simply Betty, Decosse's Dynamite Doodles, Stampin Up, Stamping Bella and Queen Kat Designs. In addition, I have some great product from Making Memories, Fiskars, Lawn Fawn, Penny Black, K&Co, Martha Stewart, and a score of others.

Happy actual Birthday! I love the Kenny K card. The image and the background are both great. I love to read & do it every chance I get. I still love paper books, but technology has it's advantages. I used to carry a book everywhere, but now I read from my iphone so I have lots of choices. I have so many books in my Amazon cloud that I'll never read them all. Since I started working on losing weight last year, I've also become passionate about exercise and healthier eating. I'm 78 pounds down from a year ago.

I hope you have a wonderful day. Thanks for a fun celebration.
