Lets get started:

DSCN0114

I love how the pink and gold feathers are peeking out from the side of the card.  So very pretty and adds dimension to the card.

DSCN0480

This card caught my eye because of the colors Kelly used to create it.  So vibrant and rich.

DSCN0493

Yes, how could you not love this card.  Doesn’t that hello look like its popped off the flower stem?  It isn’t .  Super cool.  I love the edge of the front panel.  So unique and different.

The CASE:

Thanks (CASE)

I created a blue watercolor panel to add to the side of my card front like Kelly’s first card. The blue is so vibrant and rich, which is the look I was going for. Then I die cut a tag and sentiment like Kelly’s second card. I love the side panel cut off that I had to create that as well. I added some white dots along side boarder for an added touch.  CASEing Kelly was fun for sure!!

Take a closer look:

Hello, I’m Kymona Tracey. Who am I, you ask? I am a women who never slows down and loves it. Yes... I am the energizer bunny's sister! I just keep going and going (which is something that I am working on, if you follow my weekly wishes on my blog). I am a single mother of two wonderful children who are 8 years apart. My 16 year old son is a true self-made jock who plays every sport you can think of ! My 7 year old daughter is a real life princess who loves anything crafty and girly and absolutely hates anything related to sports. Talk about yin and yang! ...but I love it!! Besides running from one activity to another with them, I work full time at a hospital (public health background), facilitate a reading group at work, teach high school students on the weekends and have a huge love of learning new things. I’ve taken classes in photography, web design, knitting, scrapbooking and card-making. I love them all, however, my true passion is card-making. I was introduced to card making back in 2004 and haven’t turned back since. I started out as a hobbyist just making cards for family and friends. People were always ecstatic when they received a card from me. What they did not know was that it made me feel just as special to make a card for them. This passion pushed me into teaching card-making classes at work with a couple of coworkers who wanted to learn how to make projects for their families. In September 2013, I made a big leap and created my blog, Kreative Kymona. Besides being a mom, I think that this has been one of my most rewarding accomplishments. Just being able to share with my world community makes life so rewarding!
