MIM#143 Ahoy with Kenny K

Hello and welcome to my blog. It's been a busy couple of days with posting for DT cards. Love it if you scrolled down and checked out the two previous posts all posted in the last 24 hours and maybe leave me a comment or two so I know you've been.
This week at Make It Monday we are being sponsored by the wonderful Kenny K, Lots of fabulous images to get your mojo going.
I saw this mischievious little pirate and decided to use her. I wanted her to be the main feature on my card so have not put any embellishment on the card apart from the AHOY. I haven't finished the inside panel yet, but will probably put a birthday greeting stamp inside and I have coloured up a little treasure chest ready to use as well (will edit later and add the pic)
Well onto the card..... I made this into a stepper card using a simple cut and fold method I found on the net. I adapted it to make a centre panelled card, but I'm not sure it is very effective like this as you can't really use the other folded areas to embellish. Oh, well creative ideas always come from trial and error.

I may be back later with a second pick (have run out of time at present)

Well, I've got to get a move on, I had my DIL drop the kids off to our youngest daughter's house as I'm going up there to go shopping with her and it is closer to our DIL's home so thought it would save some time and meant that I could sit here and get this post done as well.
Looking forward to seeing lots of wonderful creations this week. Last week we had a large number of entries so would love to see lots more this week.
