K is for.......?

It's time for the Name Game over at Cut It Up!  So, this is how the game works:  Take the letter of your first name and use something on your that begins with the same letter.  For example, if your name is Sinbad, you might use sand, sunflowers, or sparkles on your project.  If your name is Inga, you might use ink, indigo, or ice cream.   You get the idea!  Remember, you must use a die cut on your project.

First off, my name is Katrina.....let's see, that means I have to come up with k words.  Hmm.....all righty then.  Who came up with this challenge anyway?    ......Oh yeah, this was my idea!  

I started with an image from Bugaboo and cut him in Cricut Design Space.  Isn't that kid cute!  While I was over there, I also cut my cactus from the new CTMH Flower Market Cartridge and a rope from Old West.  

My digi was colored with copics and the cactus inked.  I used a piece of twine and glued it over the rope cut and tied it off in a knot.  

I inked up the background and adhered the pieces.  One cactus and my cowboy's head were adhered with 3-D tape.  I adhered the front panel to Kraft cardstock and then all of that to a card base.  

So, did you catch my 3 k-words?  Yep, kid, knot, and Kraft; although I wanted to just change the spelling and use kowboy, kaktus, and kolt! hahaha  Now it's time for you to think about the first letter of your name and what you have in your kraft craft room.
