Kenny K's Handyman

Hello everyone!I'm on a roll...4 cards so far this month!!! I have finally dedicated some time to doing what I really love.
Today I showcase a birthday card I made for my husband, Patrick. He has his own painting business and is also a very good handyman. I thought the Kenny K Handyman digi was so him. I'm also into dies at the moment and couldn't wait to use the apron and tools from Marianne Design. I wish I had a pegboard die but since I didn't, I made my own.

Louis Vuitton Handbag Card

Hi everyone,
Today I made my first handbag card. The young lady I gave it to loves designer handbags and this was just perfect. I found the template and tutorial here...only I altered it to make it bigger and to open from the top instead of the bottom.
She loved her card :)
